I own a pool. What can I do to help save water?

These are a few main tips for saving water as a pool owner:

  1. Use a bubble cover or liquid solar blanket especially at night.
  2. Reduce added heat sources to your pool from gas or solar heaters
  3. Don’t backwash your filters. Clean them or replace your filter with a system that doesn’t require backwashing.
  4. Avoid cannon balls and large splashes to minimize splash out.

Call your local pool supply company for these and other tips and for water saving products.
