The solution Piscines Waterair significantly reduces the private pool operational carbon footprint. It provides significant energy efficient products for meeting client expectations for their private pool. Water filtration (80% of water cleanness) is achieved with a new Eco.R pump reducing energy consumption by a factor of 5, allowing a complete electricity compensation by two regular solar panel installed in the house. Protection and heating of the pool water with Solae Waterair® cover brings +6 to +9°C to water temperature thanks to greenhouse effect and no electricity consumption, while protecting the pool and securing its access when not used by the owner and family.
