3 things you didn’t know about your pool

Being a pool owner means having to educate yourself on the correct maintenance procedures of your product. Like many other pool owners, you have been well versed with a healthy dose of good information regarding your pool. You have also been fed your fair share of myths regarding you pool as well.

Did you know that your pool could now be energy efficient?

Yes, it’s true. By switching from a single-speed pump to a variable-speed or two-speed pump, you can save up to 90% on your pool energy costs alone. A variable-speed pump uses less energy by allowing you to program specific operating speeds, automatically running at a slower or faster speed depending on  your pool’s needs.  A single-speed pump, unfortunately, uses the same amount of energy for intensive tasks as it does for easier ones, which means it wastes both energy and money.

Did you know that you don’t have to drain your pool to clean it?

Although it can be seen why someone would drain green water completely out of the pool to clean and scrub the inside walls, it is not always the first option to use to achieve clean pool water. With the addition of the appropriate chemicals and the proper products, such as Hayward’s automatic cleaners, you could successfully clean your pool and its water without removing and refilling new water into your pool.

Did you know you should still test your water with a saltwater pool?

For optimum performance, you should take your water in to be tested by your local pool professional. While Hayward’s AquaRite Salt Chlorinator, the world’s #1 salt chlorinator, automatically generates a steady supply of 100% pure, natural chlorine at the lowest cost per pound, other factors can affect your water’s balance such as the type and nature of your fill water, the acidity of the rain in your area, and bather splash out and waste. Your pool professional can test your pH levels, total alkalinity levels, calcium harness levels and total dissolved solids to make sure you maintain the most crisp, clean, clear water possible.
