ENERGY EFFICIENT POOLS Electricity charges are as cheap as there going to be right now! What you can do! Can we future proof our households from further rises? Yes we can. My area of expertise is energy efficient pools and spas. Like the home, there are steps that you can take to reduce your costs through management of power, water, chemical and maintenance requirements. Fixed input AC single speed pumps are major power consumers. Available now as direct replacements for these high energy pumps are DC powered variable speed pool and spa pumps There are three main areas that can inevitably help reduce your running costs. Lets look at one of these: PUMPS Most swimming pools are effectively filtered and sanitised with flow rates between 120-250 litres per. minute. That said flow rates around 280 litres per. minute may be required for backwashing sand filters and vacuuming the pool. Additionally there are larger volume pools with possible water features ,in-floor cleaning systems that will require a bigger DC pump, again huge running cost savings are still achievable Alternatives are possible where by a cluster cartridge filters are basically once a year cleaning and robotic cleaners are an alternative to suction pool cleaners. A given is that every swimming pool is different by way of design features,hydraulics and location. DC pumps have the design features of infinite variable speed to counter the variables of power consumption and water filtration flow rates. Correct speed settings allow for maximum water through put with reduced power consumption and low noise factors. Increasing or decreasing the speed of a pump simply changes the flow rate by the same amount. Actual energy used to change the speed and flow rates varies dramatically. Halve the speed of your pump and the flow will also halve but the energy consumed drops by more than 80%. Start banking your savings today! Check our web site www.wapoolgear.com.au
