Energy Efficiency Pools
Make your pool more energy efficient by:
According to the Building Sustainability Index a pool pump adds 17% energy consumption to the average NSW household, using 1,500kWh of power each year. If used all day and night, in the space of a year a typical pool pump can use more electricity than all other household appliances combined.
Not only does a pool consume a lot of energy, a pool can also increase water consumption in the average NSW household by as much as 10%. The average domestic pool in NSW is approximately 45,000L and requires a similar volume of water every two years to keep this full, due to evaporation, splash and backwash factors.
