Swimming Pools

It takes a lot of water to produce the food we eat, the energy we use and all the things that we buy. Use our water saving tips below to reduce your water use in and around your swimming pool. You’ll find lots of ways to shrink your water footprint.

Use a pool cover. Uncovered pools can lose up to a thousand gallons of water from evaporation each month (as well as energy if your pool is heated)!

Keep your pool water cool to reduce evaporation, and keep the water level low to reduce the amount of water lost to splashing.

Check your pool for leaks often, and if you find a leak get it fixed as soon as possible.
