Energy Tip Details
Solar pool covers minimize water evaporation and significantly reduce heat loss, while capturing significant heat from sunshine. Pools with solar covers will both raise the temperature of the pool themselves (often by tens of degrees), and retain the energy of any pool heater in use (thereby saving on any associated heating costs).
What You Need to Do
  • Step 1
    Purchase and install a solar pool cover, and deploy the cover whenever the pool is not in use during swimming season (i.e. any periods where the pool is heated or in use).
  • If I complete this measure, can I track my savings over time?
