Whether you have a residential or commercial swimming pool pump, you can maximize your results when opting for a higher efficiency unit that helps to save energy. However, if you’re concerned about how to install and efficiently operate commercial pool pumps, we have the tips you need:
As a pool owner, you know that the larger the pump, the larger the overall operating cost. When sizing commercial pool pumps, it’s best to use the smallest size pump possible to maximize your savings and your carbon footprint.
The Center for Energy Conversation at Florida Atlantic University found that swimming pool owners reaped saving as much as 75 percent when taking measures to conserve energy.
As you’re shopping for commercial grade pool pumps, you can reduce even more costs by substituting large filters and reducing the length of pipes. As a result, your pool circulation system’s hydraulic resistance is decreased and can reduce the amount of electricity you use by approximately 40 percent.
While your ultimate goal is to keep your swimming pool clean and sanitary, many times, pool owners run their pumps longer than necessary. In fact, there’s no need to recirculate water each and every day when you can remove small leaves and debris by using a vacuum or skimmer when the pool isn’t being used by patrons or residents.
Consider using less energy by limiting the filtration time to just six hours each day. If you find that your water isn’t as clean as you’d like for it to be, increase filtration by one half-hour each day to improve the water quality. By limiting filtration time, you can decrease the amount of energy you use and reduce your electric bill.
It also helps to purchase a timer to control the length of time your swimming pool pump operates. This way, you can run the pump for an hour at a time versus running it for a long duration. The short bursts of pump cycling help to minimize debris and growth of algae that can occur at different times of the day.
