This is the fourth of 7 Ways to Save on Your New Pool which is available for free from our library of eBooks.

Have you ever left your pool pump running all night?

Or maybe you have left your pool heater on the week you were away on vacation? Pool automation is a great way to save you the hassle, energy and most importantly money!

A pump timer is the most convenient way to achieve pool automation. A pump timer will remember to take the time and effort to turn your pump on or off so you won’t have to. It will also determine when and for how long your pool operates eliminating that “oh no” moment.

Some timers are practical and others more complex. Timers can be set to operate your pump motor or lights for a predetermined amount of time. Some are programmable, and some are so smart, they can even determine your daylight hours just by entering 7 Ways to Save on Your New Poolyour postal zip code. Then it knows to shut off when the sun goes down in the area you live!

Achieve the ultimate in pool automation by installing a heater timer too. The heater timer works the same way as the pump timer. It will program when you want your pool heater and when you don’t.

On a side note, if you think that your pool is too old and outdated to be pouring any more money into improving it, perhaps you might consider a pool renovation? We can even convert your fiberglass pool into a concrete pool! Call (239) 277-7783 for a free pool renovation quote.
