Though your pool builder can build you a beautiful, refreshing, energy-efficient pool, it is up to you to maintain it. Luckily, eco-friendly pools do not take much work to maintain! This guide shows you how you can keep your swimming pool looking great:
 
Be Cautious of Temperature
 
Controlling the temperature of your pool is one of the easiest ways to save energy. When you are not using it, you should turn down the water heater. If you primarily use the pool for active swimming, keep it between 78° and 80°. If you prefer to use it for recreational purposes, the temperature should be around 83°. Keep a thermometer in the water so you can regulate the temperature and save energy.
