Skimmer Net

Skimmer NetWhen you bought your swimming pool, you knew the summer fun involved additional costs. First in line is the cost of the pool. Next there is maintenance and pool chemicals. Then you received your summer electric bills.

You cannot eliminate the electric costs of running your pool, but you can minimize them. Swimming pool pumps consume a lot of electricity, second only to home air conditioning. Is your swimming pool pump sized correctly? The larger the pump the greater your maintenance costs will be. Most private residential pools require .75 horsepower pumps or less. Consider the following chart.

 

Hours  .5 HP	.75 HP	1 HP	1.5 HP	2 HP
4	70	105	133	184	239
6	105	157	200	276	358
8	140	209	267	368	477
10	174	262	334	460	597
12	209	314	400	552	716

kWh per month - multiply by your electric rate for dollar figure

Reducing the size of your next swimming pool pump by even .25 horsepower will have a significant impact on your electric use. But you say you need a large pump to circulate and filter the water frequently. Generally if your swimming pool water recycles once every 24 hours, it should be adequate.

Many pool owners run the pump much longer than necessary. Four to six hours a day is usually sufficient. Remember you don't have to run the pump constantly for this 4-6 hour period. If you tend to get bugs collecting overnight, run the pump for a few hours at mid-morning then again for a few hours in the afternoon or early evening. In between your filtering, use your skimmer net for any surface debris that gets in.

Make sure to monitor and adjust chemical levels as required. If the water is properly balanced and is still cloudy with your reduced filtering, add filtering time in .5 hour increments until you reach an optimal filtering time. Any amount of filtering time reduced will save you money. It's worth a little trial and error to find your lowest required recirculation time. Do the math, and then save some money.

If your current swimming pool pump is nearing replacement, consider a high efficiency, two speed pump at the correct horsepower rating. With a two speed pump you normally run the pump on low except for vacuuming and backwashing. The low speed is much quieter and consumes much less electricity.

Ohhhh my gosh...I need your help - hurry please read!!!!?

Ok yesterday, I found a big turtle in my pool. I was able to get it out with my net...the thing weighed about 3-4 pounds - maybe more. Today I was cleaning my pool and in the skimmer were 2 itzy bitzy turtle...how cute...ok mom is long gone by now..what would you do with them...and what do baby turtles eat? I'm afraid to put them in the back yard...which by the way I have 3 acres of back yard. I'm afraid something will eat them. Like an owl or something. Anybody an expert on turtles?

Mom is long gone because the babies don't need her. The big turtle you caught was probably not her. She lays her eggs and leaves, and they hatch out months later!

I am guessing, since you found them in water, that they are turtles(not tortoises), but I still have no idea what kind. Most aquatic turtles eat a protein based diet. They are carnivores and like bugs, worms, and small fish. You can get feeder crickets and feeder comets at most pet shops. They will also sell turtle pellets. These are good for supplementing, but should only make up about half of their diet. Some veggies/fruit are good, but not too much!

These little guys need a heat source, and a good UV light. They need a large tank, with a really good filter. They need a place to come out of the water and bask(lay in the heat). Turtles are messy and, since they eat alot and their water has to be warm, tend to need frequent water changes. They also get very large fairly quickly.

You need to do some research if you intend to keep them, and once raised in captivity, they should not be released. You can start to find out more www.kingsnake.com, good site with alot of info. Turtles make good pets, but their care is more involved than most people think! Good luck with them!

Oh, one more thing, I would be more afraid of them returning to the pool than getting eaten. If you do release them, make sure it is near a safer water source!
