Go Green to Save Green

I don’t know about you, but I love Saint Patrick’s Day. Especially wearing green and painting my nails so I don’t get pinched by my sisters.

Since today is all about the green, it’s the perfect day to talk about going green with your pool and hot tub!

Earth911 has a list of “8 Ways to Green Your Pool

  1. Consider switching to saltwater.
  2. Buy reusable containers and refill them as needed.
  3. Buy an energy saving pump.
  4. Check for leaks and plug them.
  5. Switch to solar power.
  6. Install a pool cover.
  7. Add plants around your pool.
  8. Remove the nutrients that feed algae.

To help make your hot tub greener:

  • Cover your spa and make sure there are no heat leaks
  • Create windbreaks
  • Lower your spa a degree or two
  • Use “standby” mode when not in use
  • Add insulation where necessary
