US Department of Energy Mandate

The U.S. Department of Energy has set forth minimum efficiency standards that a pool pump must meet to be sold in the United States. Right now, that standard is only satified by variable-speed pumps. With a variable speed pump a pool owner can circulate their water at lower flow rates for a more prolonged period of the day without added energy consumption. The fact is, variable speed pumps are significantly more energy efficient than single speed pumps. However it is up to the pool owner to actually save energy by dialing in their variable speed pump to the correct output and the way to do that is by knowing the flow rate in the pool's system. To achieve the correct flow rate, a flowmeter is necessary.

If you’re looking for a way to ensure the sustainability and eco-friendliness of your pool, consider adding a flowmeter to measure your flow rate. Not sure what the flow rate for your pool should be? Calculate the best flow rate based on the size and number of gallons your pool holds.

Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Pools

There are ways that you, as a pool owner, can ensure that you’re making the most sustainable and eco-friendly choices. From the pool equipment you use to how your pool system is operating, learn more about how FLOWREAD™ and make sustainability a priority for your pool!


Save Energy

If you’re recirculating your pool water faster than you need to, then you’re wasting energy. Instead, by installing the FLOWREAD™, you’ll get an accurate reading of the flow rate of your pool. Easy installation, no pool guy required!

Conserve energy by calibrating your pool filtration system to meet the proper flow rate so you’re keeping your pool water clean while also ensuring you’re not wasting or using energy that you don’t need to. In fact, when you use FLOWREAD™ to measure your flow rate, you can save over $600 annually on your energy bill per year (based on $0.18 per kWh).

Don’t Waste Water

As a pool owner, it’s important to make sure you’re not wasting water — but it’s also important to make sure that you and your family and friends are swimming in water that has been properly cleaned. This is where the flow rate comes in. If you’re using your flowmeter to ensure that you’re cycling out water only when it needs to be cleaned, then you are increasing the efficiency of your pump and wasting less water.

Use Solar Energy

What kind of energy do you use to run your pool system? If you still use standard power for your pool, consider switching to solar energy. This is a great way to keep your pool filtration running efficiently and smoothly with finding a way to conserve and create your own energy.

Routine Pool Maintenance

While a lot of our sustainability suggestions involve conserving resources and energy, you also want to make sure you’re still maintaining your pool and the water inside that pool. If you set your pool filtration system to low, you can start to develop algae in your pool water, turning the water green.

While in the short run, you might be conserving water and energy, you’re creating more problems for the future. When your water is filled with algae and other unsanitary problems, your pool system will have to work harder to get that water filtered and cleaned. Additionally, if you leave your water alone for too long, your pool might require more chemicals and need to be properly cleaned by a pool professional.

Choose Green Products and Accessories

What products are you using around and in your pool? From eco-friendly LED pool lights to cleaners that are good for the environment, go green when it comes to your products and accessories. This is a great way to help the environment while also choosing products that keep you and your family safe.
