CHECK FOR CRACKS AND LEAKS AROUND YOUR POOL, SPA AND EQUIPMENT.

  • A leaky pool can waste over 100,000 gallons per year! Monitor your pool closely and consult your pool professional if you suspect a leak. Some signs of leaking to look for are:

  • If your pool water level is going down more than 1/4" per day, there could possibly be a leak.

  • Loose tiles or cracks in the pool deck may be an indication of a leaking pool.

  • Cracks and gaps in the bond beam may be an indication that your pool is leaking.

  • If you notice water-saturated soils in the area around the pool, pool pumps or plumbing, your pool may be leaking.

  • If you see bubbles in the return water when the pool's pump is running, it's likely there's a leak in the suction side of the filtration system.

  • INSTALL AND USE A POOL COVER.

  • The average uncovered pool loses one inch of water per week. Covering your pool can save up to 30-40% of water lost to evaporation.

  • LOWER THE POOL WATER TEMPERATURE WHEN NOT BEING USED.

  • Reducing the temperature also reduces water loss to evaporation.

  • PLANT A WINDBREAK.

  • Wind blowing across the surface of the pool causes additional evaporation. A windbreak can help you conserve water as well as energy costs.

  • LOWER THE POOL WATER LEVEL TO REDUCE LOSSES FROM SPLASHING.

  • Maintain your pool water level one inch above the bottom of the tile.

  • KEEP YOUR FILTERS CLEAN TO PREVENT BACKWASHING.

  • The average backwash uses between 250 to 1,000 gallons of water.

  • Backwash only when necessary.

  • Run filter backwash onto lawns and shrubs or collect for reuse

  • Ensure that water is absorbed before it leaves your property and avoid allowing runoff to enter adjacent properties
