Run your pool pump for the correct number of hours per day- refer “Filtering Hours”

Make use of the timer to control the hours that the pump is set to operate.

Set your pump to run at a time when other household electrical appliances are not in use.

Regularly clear pump & weir baskets and backwash / rinse your filter to gain maximum benefit from filtering hours.

Follow a regular pool maintenance routine, to prevent the need for corrective pool treatments

Turn off the pool light.

Turn off electric pool heaters.

Solar heating requires a stronger pool pump to circulate the water, which uses more electricity.

In addition, warmer pool water requires additional chemicals and increased frequency of backwashing/rinsing of the filter.
