1. Keep your pool's heater thermostat at the coolest comfortable temperature. A pool thermometer will help you find the temperature that is perfect for you.Use a solar blanket cover at night when the pool is not in use to cut your heating cost in half.
2. Mark your comfortable setting on the heater thermostat to avoid costly overheating.
3. Lower the heater thermostat setting to 70 degrees when pool won't be used for 3 or 4 days. For longer periods, shut the pool heater off.
4. Any heated pool can benefit from a solar blanket cover. Two thirds of your pool's heat escapes through the water's surface. By using a solar pool blanket, you can help keep the heat in the pool, and cut your heating costs in half!
For safety, remove pool blankets before swimming.
