HLC - HOME LIVING: CENTRAL, Tuesday, August 16, 2011 1 Cover up and save money Plastic's fantastic . . . bubble blanket from Daisy (left) and (above) pool cover from Sunbather. ENJOY the benefits of owning a swimming pool and reduce your pool's energy consumption with a few key tips from the Swimming Pool and Spa Association of NSW. Evaporation is the major source of heat loss for swimming pools. It occurs mainly at night, when the air temperature drops below the temperature of the water in the pool. By using a pool cover you can reduce loss of water by up to 95 per cent and save up to 50 per cent on heating costs. The cover also keeps out debris and increases the pool temperature. Bubble blankets: Blankets of tiny, transparent bubbles are designed to trap sunlight and warm the pool. The floating bubble blanket reduces evaporation and cuts heat loss and chemical consumption. Thermal blankets: Designed to insulate the pool overnight by reducing evaporation and convection heat loss. They can reduce pool heating time and costs. Slat covers: These are made up of slats which roll out on to the pool surface, similar to a horizontal garage roller door. The slats lock to form a barrier that can support the weight of a small child or pet. Another way to save on pool costs is to reduce wind exposure, with a wind break. The evaporation rate from an outdoor pool depends on the pool's temperature and the air temperature and humidity. The evaporative heat loss is greater as wind velocity over the pool surface increases. By adding a windbreak such as trees, shrubs or a solid fence around the pool to create a sheltered area, you can reduce pool energy consumption by up to 20 per cent compared with a moderately sheltered pool that's near a house or in a fenced yard. Next week, find out ways of heating the pool efficiently. SPASA fact sheets on pool maintenance at www.spasa.org.au.
