SRP PowerWise' promotes energy efficient Pool Timer

SRP PowerWise' has partnered with Allen Concepts, Inc., to promote a new type of digital pool timer that automatically adjusts pool filter run-times throughout the year. The TightWatt' digital pool timer is designed to run a pool filter less in the winter and more in the summer.

On average, pool pumps are second in energy consumption after a home's air conditioner. "Our goal is to help customers make smart choices in choosing appliances for their homes," said SRP "Armed with the right information, our customers can make choices that can save them hundreds of dollars a year."


SRP PowerWise is an energy-information program that helps customers make power-wise decisions to ensure they get the most value for their money. This program offers product purchasing guidance and energy savings advice to help customers analyze and use their electricity more wisely.

"We are extremely excited about the opportunity consumers will have at saving energy and money." "The sad truth is that your pool pump is an energy hog - but it doesn't have to be." says Stephen Allen, Inventor of TightWatt and President of Allen Concepts, Inc. "Pool owners can experience greater energy savings throughout the fall and winter months when they are paying less attention to their pool."

With the recent rise in gas prices, people are doing a lot more thinking about their energy use in general. Electricity costs have continued to rise as well, and energy-efficient products are the best way to offset these cost increases. If you have a pool, it generally fills the number two spot for energy consumption next to air conditioning.

With energy costs skyrocketing, energy companies are investigating methods to reduce and balance electrical demand. And, with electrical demand higher during the daytime, concern is focusing on how to shift energy usage later in the day or night. With so many pools in existence and new pools being build everyday, using efficient pool timers can save millions of dollars in energy costs for consumers.

TightWatt pool timers are available in most Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies Stores or online at www.tightwatt.com. Suggested retail price is $149.00. For a list of Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies stores, go to http://www.lesliespool.com.
