Water Conservation

Saving Precious Water:

With water restrictions now a way of life, it is important to continue to find ways to reduce the loss of this precious resource. In the hot summer months, it has been estimated that an average swimming pool can lose up to 3,000 gallons of water a month in evaporation. By installing a solar pool blanket, you can reduce this evaporation significantly. As well, you will save on costly pool chemicals as the blanket will help maintain your pool’s correct pH balance.

Reduce Heating Costs & Use Your Pool For Longer Each Year:

Solar blankets can also reduce evaporation heat loss by up to 75% and allow you to enjoy your pool for a longer swim season.

Lower Pool Maintenance:

Pool blankets protect your pool from most leaves, debris, dust and dirt, thereby reducing maintenance costs and time.

Cover your swimming pool:

Covering a swimming pool will help reduce evaporation. An average sized pool can use about 1,000 gallons of water per month if left uncovered. A pool cover can cut the loss by up to 90%.

Recycle your pool water:

Backwashing or draining your pool into the street is against the Water Conservation Landscaping and Water Waste Ordinance. Use your pool water to irrigate your lawn, plants, trees, and shrubs. Once you have recycled as much water as possible, find your sanitary sewer clean-out. Remove the cap and pump the pool water into the sewer at a rate not to exceed 20 gallons per minute; a faster rate could cause back-up into your house. Pump rentals are available at swimming pool supply stores and equipment rental companies.

Another way to help water conservation is to turn off auto fill once a quarter. We also encourage monitoring your water loss a day or two before turning auto fill back on.
