Pools and spas

BASIX assesses the energy used for pools and spas based on:

  • the type of pool heating;
  • whether or not the pool pump will be controlled by a timer;
  • the type of spa heating; and
  • whether or not the spa pump will be controlled by a timer.

Other pool and spa details (including size and whether or not there will be a cover) are required in the water section of BASIX.
