Swimming Pool Operating Costs


The principal expense in maintaining an Endless Pool is the cost of heating the water.

During installation, the pool should be well insulated. We recommend at least 2" of foam insulation board be added to most installations. For additional savings in colder climates, the pool can be super-insulated with up to 6" of rigid foam.

While the pool comes with a floating thermal blanket, the optional retractable security cover is even more effective at preventing evaporation, the main cause of heat loss. We also offer an insulated security cover that increases the R-factor to 4.

A covered, well-insulated pool will only lose a couple of degrees per day. Pools placed outside in warm climates or inside a greenhouse may need only solar energy to remain comfortable most of the year.

We also offer optional natural or propane gas heaters, at extra cost, in lieu of the standard electric heater. A cost comparison of electric and gas heaters is available upon request.

Other operating costs:
The water purification system included with the pool reduces the use of chemical sanitizers such as chlorine by about 80%. Inexpensive household chlorine bleach provides the minimal chlorine residual necessary to oxidize organic residue.

The cost of electricity to power the swim current costs about a penny a minute, while the circulating pump used to filter the pool water uses about $10 of electricity a month.
