Premier Pool Service recommends that you follow these steps if you want to reduce your energy bill. A swimming pool pump is one of the highest energy consumers for a household. Following these few steps can help you create a low costing energy bill each month. For a more energy efficient swimming pool and low costing energy bill please, read below.

1: How to Reduce Energy Bills

There are multiple ways that you can reduce the cost of your energy bill with your swimming pool pump. The swimming pool pump is responsible for circulating water throughout the pool, which keeps it clean. If there is a noticeable change in your swimming pool clarity, it would most likely indicate that the pool pump needs to be cleaned or replaced.

2: How long to Run your Pool Pump

The average pool pump runs 12 hours summer, and 6 hours winter; However, there are multiple variables that affect how much filtering your pool water needs.

When a pool builder or pool contractor designs a swimming pool or inground pool, most use an 8-hour turnover formula to size the pool pump and filter. That is, the size of the pump and matching filter is large enough to pump and filter all of the water in the pool, in an 8 hour time period.

For a 20,000 gallon pool, an 8-hour filter system (pump, filter, valves, pipes) would be designed to produce at least 42 gallons per minute, or gpm.

3: Upgrading your Pool Pump

Upgrading your swimming pool pump is one of the most effective ways to create an energy efficient pool. Having a new variable speed pump is the perfect solution to cutting down costs and the best way to keep your swimming pool clean. Variable speed pumps are designed to pump & filter water throughout your pool in an efficient amount of time without having to run your pump 24/7, which would raise costs.

Did you know that a typical variable speed pump can pay for itself in as little as 1 to 2 years? Premier Pool Service specializes in upgrading outdated pool pumps to new, energy efficient pumps. Many energy companies will give you a rebate when you upgrade your pump! This is the perfect opportunity for you to get paid to save money. Our Jandy/Zodiac Pool Pumps are designed to minimize the amount of energy used to circulate water in your swimming pool, so you will be saving money all year round.
