Pool Covers in San Rafael Will Help You Conserve Water

More and more people who have swimming pools in their homes are purchasing pool covers in San Rafael to maintain the quality and quantity of their pool water.

Swimming pools, while not technically necessary, are an awesome addition to any pool. People love being near and in the water, they love to swim and cool themselves down. Swimming pools are refreshing especially on a hot summer day. They give delight as well as an opportunity for people to work out their bodies by swimming and doing water exercises. That’s why as much as a swimming pool provides delight it should be taken care of and in order to save its water.

There are certain guidelines on how to conserve pool water. Pool water should be cleaned regularly and the water filters properly maintained. Pools should also be covered with pool covers, especially when it’s not in use. Why is that?

The reason an unused pool should be covered is because when it is exposed for a long time under the searing sun, the water will evaporate. Evaporation is the major culprit (among all others) for pool water loss. An uncovered pool, especially during hot months, will lead to water loss equivalent to 180 gallons a week (or 720 gallons a month).

You can prevent further pool water loss by using pool covers because they act as a barrier between the water and the outside elements such as the sunlight that causes evaporation. According to the US Department of Energy, using a cover pool can prevent evaporation up to 93%. The less water loss caused by evaporation, the more money you save from having to refill your swimming pool just by using a pool cover. How neat is that?
