Equipment Automation & Upgrades
At Butcher’s Swimming Pools, we understand your time is valuable. There’s no reason for any pool or spa owner to use more energy or spend more money than necessary in order to maintain their pool, and that’s why we’re dedicated to giving you the most energy-efficient custom poolscape to enjoy in the most effortless way.
Equipping your pool with energy-efficient equipment proves to be the best way to reduce energy consumption while cutting your utility costs associated with pool ownership, all the while running a low-maintenance pool. Because when your equipment runs effectively and efficiently, you spend more time in the water – where you should be!
Integrating an automated control system is the best way you can save time and money while operating your pool. Imagine being able to warm your pool or spa before you get home, having it ready for you by the time you arrive. Automated control systems give you the latitude to control your pool anywhere, anytime on your smart device – a perk for the pool owner on the go.
While there is a greater initial investment to incorporate energy-efficient pool and spa equipment, the rate of return can save you hundreds of dollars on future utility bills. Not only does energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly pool and spa equipment reduce pool operating costs, it also cuts down on energy usage and saves water – benefiting both you and the environment.
Contact Butcher’s Swimming Pools today to find out how we can outfit your custom pool, or retrofit your current one, with energy-efficient equipment.
Sure, you can think of things more fun than cleaning your pool filter, but this is an important part of pool maintenance that cannot be overlooked or undervalued. You can always hire a service technician to do your dirty work for you, but whether you do it yourself or depend on an experienced professional, it is important to know the proper steps involved.

Saltwater Pool vs. Chlorine Pool: Which is Best for You?
The Advantages of a Saltwater Pool
Rather than use chlorine tablets, dissolved salt is used to both clean and sanitize your pool. Not only is this way of cleaning the pool more budget-friendly, but saltwater pools also often require less maintenance than a chlorinated pool. What many people don't understand, however, is that saltwater pools don't leave you with the “feel” of just emerging from the ocean. In fact, saltwater pools still have chlorine in it since chlorine is a byproduct of salt! But the major benefit of saltwater is that you're able to reap the benefits of a chlorinated pool without using as many chemicals. Because of this, these pools are thought to be safer for the skin, hair, and less damaging to our bathing suits than chlorine.
The Advantages of a Chlorinated Pool
Many will attest to the fact that chlorine is better at cleaning up any bacteria in the water than a salt water-based pool. It's also faster to act if there are bacteria present, or if the pH levels happen to be off. Clearing up the water is also significantly faster, taking only a day or two versus 3 to 5 days. Here's another advantage that makes chlorinated pools a winner in many households: they're easier to operate. All you need to do is add some tablets to your pool system and your pump or a floating disbursement device will spread it through the water for you – it doesn't get easier than that!
