What's more beautiful than a crystal blue pool? One that's environmentally green. At J. Tortorella, we create pools that are exquisitely elegant, energy efficient and ecologically sound. We're strong believers in preserving our environment. In fact, our sister company, Sun Stream USA is a distributor of alternative energy products and has created an energy-efficient pool package featuring:

According to research conducted by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), energy savings opportunities for both new and existing in-ground pools can be substantial. The NRDC estimates that our nation's swimming pools generate approximately 10 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year - roughly the same as 1.3 million cars and light trucks.
By using today's energy efficient technology, the NRDC's study demonstrates that we could potentially save more than 2/3 of total swimming pool energy use. For the average homeowner, this can translate into about $400 in annual utility savings from a more efficient pump design alone -- more if you address energy loss from inefficient pool heaters as well. In fact, the savings from some heated pools can approach the typical savings achieved from upgrading an average-size new home to meet Energy Star® requirements.
