Home Living : August 30th 2011
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, August 30, 2011 7 energy and cut costs LED step lights (left) are becoming increasingly popular, while a pipe-less filtration system and pump unit can either sit on the edge of the pool or be built in. Smart automation Advances in pool automation technology mean you can control your pool's operation with the touch of a button. And automating your pool is a key consideration when looking to reduce its operating costs. Terry Hunter, from Pool Controls, says that by automating a pool, the running times of equipment can be strictly controlled so that only the minimum amount of energy is needed. Advances in automatic water management controllers, which combine sanitation and pH controllers with versatile timers to control your pools filtration system and even lighting, mean you can now also maintain your pool more quickly and energy efficiently. Next generation cleaners Another big leap forward in terms of swimming pool energy efficiency is the new generation of robotic pool cleaners. Not only do these cleaners use significantly less energy than pressure pool cleaners, up to 90 per cent less in some cases, the latest models act as micro filters, circulating the pool water, reducing filter maintenance and saving precious water and pool chemicals. Heating efficiency Advances in solar and heat pump swimming pool heating technology mean it is now possible to extend your swim season or even swim all year round thanks to the minimal operating costs involved. Low cost lighting LED pool lights have been on the market for a while now and are proving to be the popular choice when it comes to energy-efficient pool lighting. LED lights are at least 30 per cent more efficient than the halogen equivalents and have a rated lamp life of 50,000 hours compared with only 2000 hours.
