tween splashing, evaporation, and spillover, there are a lot of ways that your swimming pool can wastewater. Whether you want to reduce your utility costs or help conserve water, there are some great options to reduce your water waste. Here are some basic tips on how to reduce your swimming pool water waste.
The biggest water waster in swimming pools is leaking. Even the smallest leak can cause you to lose hundreds of gallons of water. If you notice your water level lowering or your water bills going up, take the time to check your pool for leaks. If you find any small cracks or holes, make sure you get a pool expert out to repair them right away. It’s also a good idea to just check your pool routinely for any damage so you can make necessary repairs before they become a problem.
Install A Pool Cover
People often think of pool covers as something that should only be used during the off-season when you aren’t regularly swimming in your pool. However, using a pool cover year-round will not only reduce your routine pool maintenance but will also block any evaporation. Using a pool cover in the summer, especially under the hot Florida sun, can save you a lot of money and reduce your water waste. There are a huge variety of pool covers on the market, including automatic pool covers that just turn on with a flip of a button. Talk to your expert at Olympus Pool to see what options are right for your pool.
Install Timers On Water Features
Water features are a wonderful addition to any pool space. However, between the splashing and evaporation, they can also waste a lot of water. You can virtually cut this waste if you make sure that the water features are only on when you are using the pool. The simplest way to do this is to set them up on timers, so they automatically shut off when you’re done swimming.
These three simple tips can save you hundreds of dollars and help support any water conservation efforts. If you want to reduce water waste, talk to your pool expert at Olympus Pools and we can help you come up with a great plan to keep your water in your pool.
