Pool filters don’t need to work 24hours per day. Furthermore, stopping your filter will allow you to relax in your own backward, pool or spa! And if you sleep with your windows open, you will sleep better !

You ca also install a time-switch for your vehicle’s motor block-heater, in winter time of course. Between 4 and 6 hours of heating is enough.
