How will a swimming pool enclosure save me money?
A swimming pool enclosure is good for you, and the environment
So how exactly will a swimming pool enclosure save me money.Let's start by saving energy - here's how
The main cause of heat loss from a swimming pool during the day is through evaporation. This is also accentuated if there is a breeze, as this speeds up the process of removing warm air above the pool water (that you’ve spend money heating) and replacing it with cool air.
Another factor is rainfall. A heavy down-poor, not only dumps a great deal of cold, and possibly not clean water into your pool, it also has an impact on your chemical balance, which will then need attention. Also the drop in night time temperatures have a big impact.
A pool enclosure can significantly reduce this heat loss by protecting your pool from cool air and rainfall, and provide insulation to hold the heat in. Also during sunny days, the enclosure absorbs heat, radiating it down to the pool surface, where it circulates and warms your pool water. This effect can increase you pool temperature by approx 5 degrees Centigrade, compared to an uncovered pool.
An additional, yet smaller way an enclosure can save energy, is by allowing your filter to be more efficient and therefore run for less time whilst giving the same result. The pool water, under the enclosure, is still and clean, and therefore the filter can easily do its job.Don't forget the cost of chemicals
The pool enclosure reduces evaporation from your pool, which means that your chemicals maintain better balance, and water levels remain more constant.
Maintenance is money
Also thinking longer term
Heat your pool, not the air …
Saving more than money
