  • To conserve energy, run  your pool's filtration system only during off-peak hours.
  • When leaving for vacation  for more than a week, turn off the pool heater, including the pilot light.
  • If you use your pool only  on weekends, reduce your heater thermostats settings by eight to ten degrees  during the week.
  • Use fencing, hedges or  other landscaping, or cabanas to shelter your pool from prevailing winds.
  • According to the National  Swimming Pool Institute and the American Red Cross, the most healthful swimming  temperature is 78 degrees. Reducing your heater thermostat to maintain a 78  degree or lower temperature will also help conserve energy.
  • When  reopening your pool for a new season, make sure your pump and filter are working  properly before adding chemicals to the water.
  • If your pool heater is more  than five years old, chances are a new high efficiency gas heater such as the  MiniMax could quickly pay for itself in utility bill savings.
  • To obtain  maximum filtration and energy efficiency, backwash or clean your filter  regularly, as required.
