If you have a pool, you should sign up for big improvements in energy use, quality of water and leisure time from pool chores
Pooled Energy supplies a bundle of electricity for your whole house, and automation and on-going services for your pool
Physically, we supply and install electronic water quality sensors and a poolside automation system known as an Intelligent Pool Controller (IPC). Your existing pool equipment:- filter pump, chlorinator, pool sweep, heater, solar sweep, etc. plug into 3-pin sockets provided with the IPC. Pooled Energy also tests your water and brings it up to specification for Advanced Water Chemistry. It then continually manages your pool via the Internet to give you substantially improved water quality, lower energy bills, more leisure time and longer equipment life.
The pool is typically the largest 'appliance' in the house, consuming ~30% of the total electricity of the house. We reduce and manage your pool's energy consumption with savings up to 70% of the pool's electricity, often equivalent to ~ 20% of your total household consumption. We also improve water quality and reliability substantially using an Advanced Water Chemistry along with sensor-based automatic control..
Otherwise, nothing changes on your pool other
than any necessary rectification of defects we encounter during our
installation. You may wish to take the
opportunity (at extra cost) to have our expert staff fix any leaks, defects,
plumbing problems or equipment faults at the time.
Their operation then becomes automatic but you can monitor and override the system with a Pool App that runs on Apple and Android SmartPhones and Tablets.
The pool automation system is installed by Pooled Energy after the electricity billing for your home has been transferred to Pooled Energy from your current Retailer. (Note that your current Electricity Distributor, for example Ausgrid, remains unchanged).
Your monthly bill will arrive by email and will consist of:-
· A regular monthly charge for your electricity based on your use,
· A regular monthly fee for the Pool and Energy Saving Services provided by the Pooled Energy system,
· Any chemicals and/or other services provided, as mutually agreed.
The overall, regular, monthly invoice is for the bundled service offering – i.e. electricity for whole home and pool, and Pool Automation and Energy Management.
Your pool is likely to use significantly lower amounts of energy and chemicals compared with an average, conventionally-maintained pool (the ‘reference’ pool) and require less maintenance and time. The amount of savings achieved in any one case, will vary from house to house and pool to pool, and will depend on how you previously ran your pool and the type of electricity meter and tariff you had in the past.
