Energy Saving Pool Products

By there nature, a swimming pool is not the greenest of things which a household can own.

A large volume of water which requires heating, cleaning and constantly circulating can consume allot of energy, sometimes more than the rest of the house.

There are steps which you can do to improve your energy efficiency, by investing in energy efficient pool products you can make substantial savings!

Green Swimming Pool Products

: Multicyclone water saving centrifugal pre-filtration

Multi Cyclone Pool FiltrationGreen water saving swimming pool productMultiCyclone is a pre-filtration device that is capable of saving water and reducing filter maintenance.

The MultiCyclone works on the basis of centrifugal water filtration. There are no moving parts to wear and tear, and no filter media to clean or replace.

MultiCyclone is ideal as a pre-filter, extending the life of your existing filter and cutting water consumption as it eases the workload on your swimming pool filter.

  • Centrifugal water filtration
  • No filter media to clean or replace
  • Simple installation
  • Reduce frequency of back washing
  • Reduce filter cartridge maintenance

: Solar Pool Heating

Solar pool heatingSwimming Pool Solar Panel

Green energy saving swimming pool productSwimming pools are big energy consumers. Most swimming pools require some type of heating, whether to bring the pool up to temperature in the spring, to maintain a desired temperature during the swimming season, or to extend the swimming season.

Solar energy is the cleanest and most inexhaustible of all known energy sources. Solar radiation is the heat, light and other radiation that is emitted from the sun. It contains huge amounts of energy and is responsible for almost all the natural processes on earth.

Solar energy is an excellent alternative for heating a pool. The pool season coincides with the optimal time of the year for making use of solar energy and the X-FLOW system only needs to work at relatively low temperatures. Pools often only need to be 27-30 °C. More info >>>>

: Gemini dehumidifier combination air source heat pump

Heatstart GeminiIn a landmark for the swimming pool industry,an entirely new generation of indoor pool climate control system is launched.

Put simply, the Gemini is an indoor pool climate control unit which features a ‘built-in’ integral fresh air source heat pump boiler.

The fresh air source heat pump is used as the main method of heating, extracting free ‘green’ energy from the outside air and directly heating both the pool water and the pool room air.

The Gemini is launched as a direct response to ever increasing fuel prices and the escalating focus and demand for the use and inclusion of renewable energy sources.

The Gemini still provides all the usual energy efficiencies associated with a modern indoor pool climate control unit, using a dehumidification heat pump with active heat reclaim to both pool room air and pool water.

Green energy saving swimming pool productThe Gemini therefore provides the end client with an easy and convenient ‘all-in-one’ solution to the desire to accommodate renewable energy technology, without the complexity or high associated installation costs of ground source heat pumps or externally positioned fresh air source heat pump boilers.

: Inteliflow Pump - Computer controlled variable speed pump

Intelliflow pumpNearly silent operation and longer life are automatic side benefits of new technology.
Few pool owners realize their pool pump can use more electricity than all the appliances in their home. That’s because most pool pumps are traditional single-speed models with ¾ HP or larger, induction-style motors. For decades this was the norm because electricity costs were low and supply was abundant.

intelliflow pump controlsPermanent magnet motors assure a 30% base savings compared to induction motors. Then, savings build up to 90% with the ability to custom program the optimum pump speed or water flow for different functions—filtering, heating, cleaning, spa jets, and water features.

Green energy saving swimming pool productThe secret to minimizing pump energy use is to operate at the lowest speed needed to accomplish a job. It takes far less energy to move water slowly than quickly. In fact, reducing pump speed by half reduces power needed to an eighth of what was needed previously to get the job done. A good analogy is your car…you get far better fuel mileage at 30 mph than at 90 mph. These new pumps allow you to set and adjust pump speed to achieve the minimum energy use. More info >>>>

: Swimming Pool Heat Pumps

Heat PumpA heat pump extracts energy from the surrounding air and transfers it into heat, which is used to warm the swimming pool water through a heat exchanger. It works to the same principle as a refrigerator or air conditioning but in reverse.

The heat pump extracts heat from air and uses it, expelling air which is about 5 degrees cooler than the surrounding environment. The heat pump consists of a compressor incorporating refrigerant, a heat exchanger, a condenser and a ventilator.

At present Brookforge offer swimming pool heat pumps from four different manufacturers : Calorex , Heatstar , Heat Perfector and Fairlocks

: Swimming Pool Heat Retention Covers

Swimming pool thermal cover

A swimming pool heat retaining cover is essential for any outdoor pool and strongly advised on all internal pools.

Preventing heat loses through the pool surface will dramatically cut down on energy being wasted to re-heat the pool water

There many different types of swimming pool covers from thermal and solar covers which are solely for heat retension through to full slatted safety covers.

Regular use of a thermal cover cuts energy consumption by 22% and total costs by 15%

Thermalux heat retention covers are available in either 6mm thickness for pools up to 30 Degrees C
or 12mm thickness for pools up to 40 Degrees C

: LED Lighting - low power consumption pool lighting

Certikin - Underwater Light - LED colour LightingUnderwater Light - LED LightingHigh Intensity LED Lamps

Green energy saving swimming pool productReduce maintenance and operating costs with our new high intensity 25Watt LED lamps that can be installed in most traditional pool lights.

LED lamps are environmentally friendly thanks to their long lifespan (up to 100,000 hours) and high-energy efficiency.

The LED’s use 80% less power than traditional 300Watt swimming pool PAR56 lamps.

: BESGO - AUTO BACKWASH

besgo auto backwash valveThe Besgo is a Swiss engineered, 240v solenoid controlled, backwash valve. No more turning pumps on and off, losing suction and moving valves... the Besgo replaces traditional valves and changes the path of water from filtration to backwash automatically. A control panel is available for automatically scheduling backwash frequency.

Fail safe - in the event of power failure the valve remains in its closed position (normal filtration) therefore preventing accidental emptying of the pool.

Also available as a 3-way valve to switch between 2 water features.

Valve operates in less than 2 seconds.

Pipe sizes: 50mm -140mm / 1 ½” - 5”
