Swimming Pool Energy Efficiency in the Lehigh Valley

How could something as simple as a pvc elbow improve pool efficiency and lower energy costs?

Always use sweep 90° elbows instead of the more readily available standard 90° elbows wherever possible.   A standard 90° elbow adds the equivalent friction loss of about 6’ feet of straight pipe.   A sweep 90° lowers that friction loss by 50%.   On an average pool, pump sizing calculations can be based on about 200’ less of pipe than a pool using the standard, restrictive elbows.  Your pump will not have to work as hard, which equates to longer life and lower cost.
