dc.description.abstractThe following document addresses the importance of sustainability into design of a private swimming pool. It shows how easy it is to establish human thermal comfort, xeriscaping ideas for a cooler environment, and recycling water and recharging aquifers. All by powering the pumps, lights, heaters, and maintenance only by using solar energy from PV panels used as a Ramada for the pool design. The study was conducted at a residential home in Tucson, AZ. A house was chosen to see how these benefits will impact the thermal zone and how it will perish the water we don’t have much of in the southwest region of the US. Different materials were implemented into the design to show the comparison of the sustainable principles and products versus the non-sustainable products to show how you can save and how the payback period of all the costs to pay back in 2 years.en_US
