Eco-Friendly Pool Features

We recommend the following products that will save energy, conserve water, reduce noise, or otherwise contribute to a more eco-friendly pool system:
Advanced Eco-Friendly – Standard features on every pool:
Timers on equipment: Equipment schedules are easily altered to account for changes in pool usages, weather and other factors that impact overall equipment performance. Equipment isn’t accidentally left on for extended periods, thereby wasting energy. It will make it easier to take advantage of off-peak seasonal utility rates.
Oversized plumbing: Reduces the resistance to water flow of the pump to insure equipment is performing at its most optimum level, thus saving energy and water.
Stealth pumps: Incorporates “Quiet Technology” to control the flow dynamics resulting in less noise, powered with an energy efficient motor that saves up to 20% on energy costs.
DE filter: Reduces operating filter time by the ability to filter as small as 2 microns, saving energy and chemical use.
Overflow/Auto-fill system: Automatically keeps pool at the optimal water level to provide the most efficient use from skimmers and equipment, saving water, energy and chemicals.
Other Advanced Eco-friendly Features:
Cover: Swimming pool covers keep the pool cleaner, reducing chemical and filter maintenance costs. A pool cover also reduces the amount of water and chlorine lost to evaporation. And, covers help prevent heat loss, keeping your pool water comfortably warm, minimizing pool heater usage and extending your swimming season - while saving energy!
Sanitation system: We recommend using ionization or UV sanitation systems to reduce or eliminate the amounts of liquid or tablet chlorine used. Less chlorine produced at chemical factories reduces emissions and energy use from production, packaging and transportation.
Solar pool heating system: Enjoy a longer swimming season with free heat from the sun. Our high-efficiency solar absorbers transfer hundreds of thousands of BTUs from the sun into your swimming pool water without creating any pollution or greenhouse gases!
In-floor cleaning system: The advantages of the in-floor cleaning system are multiple. Circulation is a giant part of its advantages; not only making the pool a passive solar heated pool but also makes the equipment and materials that much more effective. The water is circulated from the bottom-up instead of from the side.
Variable speed pumps: Variable speed pump capability minimizes energy use with the use of magnet motor (like those used in hybrid cars) in place of an induction motor, fundamentally more energy efficient and provides energy savings.
Heat pump: Heat pumps simply take the heat from the air and transfer it to the water – making the heating process clean, efficient, ecologically safe and cost effective.
LED lights: LED pool and spa lights are the most energy-efficient lighting option, they need only 50 watts to create the same light output as traditional incandescent and halogen lights. In addition, they can last 30,000 hours minimizing replacement cost and disposal.
