 ‘Pooling’ of pools energy consumption to assist renewable generation in the Grid (Invisibly and without impact on you)


Your pool will adapt continually to swimming activity, water chemistry, weather, forecast, time-of-day, time-of year, the amount of sunshine, the varying cost and price of electricity and the technical state of the Electricity Grid.  This permits water quality and energy optimisation that cannot be done by simplistic time-clocks that do the same thing every day.




[1]  The Intelligent Pool Controller and sensors will be installed at no cost as part of a bundled contract for electricity for your entire house and pool services.   Chemicals and any mutually agreed plumbing, maintenance or equipment changes to rectify problems or for legal requirements are additional. There is a monthly fee of $67 for Pool Services, however these are usually easily recovered by the net savings.

[2] The Electricity consumed by the pool for cleaning and sanitation varies from house to house but is often 40% of total household consumption.  This percentage depends on the other appliances in the house and their usage.  The percentage can be more in smaller houses without air conditioning and tends to be less in the larger houses with air-conditioning and many electrical appliances.  The savings are about 30% of total energy usage for the average house and pool combined.

[3]  Pool Chemical replenishment is required after water loss, once or twice a year  and about $100 for the average pool. Pooled Energy provides equipment maintenance, replacement and upgrades at extra cost.
