Pools = High Energy Costs + Large Carbon Footprint

Did you know that one swimming pool in America outputs the same amount of pollution yearly as an SUV? That pool pump usage, resulting in 4.5 Mega Watts of energy a year, is very costly and not environmentally friendly. With traditional pool cleaning systems, you don’t have the option of running the pump fewer hours because the pool is only being cleaned when the pump is running.

For most pool owners, the pool pump represents the second largest consumer of electricity in the home.

This is particularly true in sunbelt regions where pools are open year round. With the energy-saving Solar-Breeze removing debris from a pool at no cost using energy from the sun, pool owners can significantly reduce the run time of their pool pumps and save hundreds of dollars a year on their energy bills.

Lower your Energy Bills

Pools collect leaves, grass, bugs, dust, pollens and other debris all day long. However, pool owners normally operate their built-in filtration systems for only 8–12 hours in the evening when energy costs are lower. These systems do nothing to clean and filter water or remove debris when the pump is turned off.

As a result, most debris ends up on the bottom of the pool where it is removed by bottom cleaning systems that normally use high horsepower electric motors circulating thousands of gallons of water. These systems run up hundreds of dollars a year in electric bills.

And these automated bottom cleaners may or may not remove the debris effectively, as many of them leave dead zones on the pool floor that are not cleaned properly.

Solar-Breeze removes 90-95% of that debris from the surface before it sinks to the bottom.

And it does this for free using energy from the sun.

As a result, there is much less need to run bottom cleaning apparatus or systems.

And since Solar-Breeze operates all day while the sun is shining when most pool filtration systems are idle, the debris and organic material is removed before it has a chance to decay and produce bacteria in the sunlight. This results in less bacteria growth in the pool.

As a result of having a Solar-Breeze, less bottom cleaning and less filtration is required.

That’s why Solar-Breeze owners are reducing their pool pump usage by 1/2 to 2/3.

This energy-saving pool skimmer saves them hundreds of dollars a year on their electric bills, especially in sunbelt states where pools are open year round. In these locations, the pool pump is often the second largest consumer of electricity in the home, after the air conditioning and heating system.

In many cases, Solar-Breeze owners find that the investment they make in the Solar-Breeze is paid back through lower electric costs in less than a year.
