Owners with beautiful swimming pools like infinity pools and elevated pools may want to consider an automated pool covers in Lafayette. They don’t want to settle for anything less than a high-quality automated pool cover that uses the latest technology, is made of high-grade materials, and is strong enough to withstand nature’s elements.

Many swimming pool owners, especially living in arid areas or regions experiencing drought such as California, want to save their precious pool water from evaporating. According to California Spa and Pool Industry Education Council, it is estimated that 1/2 inch to 2 inches of water evaporates from a pool each week. Using this estimate, about 19,500 gallons of water can be lost in an average-sized swimming pool in California due to evaporation alone.

If that much water can be lost from an average-sized pool, so much more can be lost if your pool is bigger or more sophisticated. Even indoor pools and spas aren’t spared from the problems caused by evaporation. Lafayette, and the rest of the state of California, has been declared to be in a state of drought emergency by Governor Jerry Brown. He has asked residents to cut back on their water consumption by as much as 25% as part of the state’s new mandatory drought restriction policies.

California is one of the states with the most number of swimming pools. Plus, because recession in the US wanes and the economy is back on track, more and more people are adding swimming pools at their homes. Many realtors still say that more potential buyers would prefer residential properties with swimming pools than those who do not want one. Those with swimming pools, however, will want to be responsible with their swimming pools, especially in this stubborn Californian drought.

And then there’s the use of water heaters for pools and spas. Many people still love to enjoy swimming at night after a long, tiring day. Many households have water heaters installed to warm up their swimming pools. Constant use of the water heater will mean higher energy bills, which will put a hole in anyone’s pocket.

Here are some tips to conserve water in your swimming pools and save energy in the process:

  • Keep your pool clean to reduce the frequency of backwashing
  • Control splashing or lower the pool’s water level to avoid splash out
  • Install a pool cover and use it when the pool is not being used

Using automated pool covers in Lafayette is probably the best way to reduce water loss and save energy. Automated covers reduce water loss to evaporation by as much as 90%. As the cover pool helps trap the vapor from drifting into the atmosphere, it also keeps the water temperature warm, which minimizes the need to turn on the water heater. The less you have to use a water heater, the more money you will save on energy bills. Automated pool covers also keep the water clean, thus saving you time for cleaning the pool.
