Home Living : August 23rd 2011
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, August 23, 2011 1 Pool your resources JANITA SINGH Win-win: a home pool need not be environment-unfriendly. A pool is a great amenity for your home but having one is not without some substantial costs -- both monetary and environmental. Pools need lots of water to operate because evaporation demands periodic refilling; chemicals to keep the water safe and clean and on top of that there is the energy needed for the pumps, filter and heating. That's why now many pool owners are thinking eco-pool: putting in an anti-evaporation pool cover, running the filter during off-peak and creating windbreaks around the pool to save on heating. Another winner is solar heating which extends the usability of your pool by up to four months. Try heat pumps -- already used in reverse-cycle airconditioning -- to heat your pool. They are very energy-efficient. Or, try heating the pool with gas -- it heats your pool quickly and efficiently to a comfortable temperature at any time of the year. Also, adding a timer to the pool pump helps. You can also switch to greener cleaning methods. Pool companies can advise you on how to use safer and more sustainable pool chemicals. Make the small changes to make a big difference to your pocket and environment. HOMELIVING Waterco solar roof.
