  • Reduce heat loss by using a pool cover
  • Fences, cabanas, etc. will shelter your pool from winds and prevent heat loss
  • Reduce the heat pump and heater thermostat during the days that you do not use your pool
  • When you leave on vacation, turn the heater off if you live in a temperate climate
  • Keep your water temperature at 78 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Replace your pool pump with a more energy-efficient model
  • Reduce pump speed to use energy use
  • Circulate water through filter only once a day
  • Run the pool filtration system at off-peak hours such as during the night
