Preventing water loss in your pool
Exposure to intense heat, wind, and low humidity can all cause you to suffer water loss in your backyard or commercial swimming pool. This can be very costly and disappointing when you are looking to cool off during the harsh summer months. There are several ways you can combat evaporation of water from your pool.
- Use a Pool Cover: Pool covers are the best way to prevent water loss because they will reduce evaporation by 95%. Additionally, they will decrease chemical consumption and cleaning time.
- Turn off Your Water Features: fountains, slides, and sprayers all leave much more water exposed to the air causing rapid evaporation. When these features are not being used, remember to turn them off.
- Install Windbreakers: creating barriers to protect against wind (e.g. panels, fences, shrubs) will also protect your pool against excess evaporation.
Implementing these tips will save you money, energy, and water while still letting you enjoy the benefits of your pool!
