With the change in the price of electricity, many people have chosen to use the appliances at night, when the rate is cheaper, including the pool filter. However, Ecopools - Construma explains why this is not recommended.
For proper pool maintenance, it is recommended to filter the water between six and eight hours a day, even more in summer. In order for the water to remain crystal clear, it is necessary to filter divided into two time bands, half the hours in the morning and the other half in the afternoon.
During the central hours of the day, due to the effect of the sun and bathers, the chlorine level in the pool decreases. If we filter before and after these central hours, the disinfectant is distributed evenly and we ensure that the water is always clean.
What happens then if we do it only at night? Construma explains that if we filter in a single time slot, the pool will be without chlorine practically all day and the disinfection will be inadequate, and algae may appear.
However, to save money on the filtration process it is recommended to have an efficient variable speed filtration pump, which reduces consumption by up to 75%.
