Our usually fabulous Florida weather has been a bit of a challenge this winter. One week warm and humid, the next week cold and windy. At least we don't have snow to contend with like our Northern friends and family.

One of the things people always ask me is about the energy usage for running a pool. Over the past few years much has been accomplished in creating "greener" pool equipment. From variable speed pumps and salt chlorination systems to heat pumps the industry has come a long way in creating efficient units for home and commercial use.

Variable speed pumps offer up to 80% energy cost savings over single-speed alternatives because of their integrated variable-speed drive and totally-enclosed, permanent magnet motor. Salt chlorination eliminates the liquid or tablet chlorine method of sanitization and also eliminates red eyes, itchy skin and chemical odors. All with using a minimal amount of salt...a teaspoon of salt per gallon is all it takes!

As for heat pumps, they're perfect for year round continuous comfort for water temperature. The newest varieties consume less energy than gas heaters to lower your operating expense.They're super quiet, durable and designed to ensure maximum heat transfer and resistance to harsh pool chemicals for a longer life.

All of these features add up to a greener swimming environment for your family. Call today and let me explain how we can add these features to your new pool or replace your existing inefficient units with new equipment that will increase your pool use and save money, too.

 Decorative Concrete Stepping Stones
Found this great idea on Pinterest!

Build a mold frame (sized to fit selected door mat), fill with concrete mix, then press rubber door mat into the wet cement to create these beautiful designs. To take this a step further...use other items like sea grape leaves to create nature inspired themes. Visit fam-bjork.se for more ideas and how-to's.

  Kubota Mini Excavator

This nifty "little" piece of equipment will be used to dig trenches around the pool for piping plumbing from the pool to the equipment pad.

Much more efficient than the old way...digging by hand!
