Pools & Spas

​Keeping Pools in Check

Man splashing water in a swimming pool.It is not unusual for an outdoor pool to lose an inch of water a day. For a medium-sized hotel pool, this can mean 1,500 gallons of water loss per day (about 540,000 gallons per year). Water loss from evaporation not only translates into more water use, but also means spending more money on chemicals and heating.


 


 


​Ways to Reduce Water Loss

There are a number of ways to reduce water loss from pools and spas, without inconveniencing your customers or guests.

  • Keep the chemical balance right - a balanced pool will need to be drained and refilled less often.

  • Consider lowering the pool's temperature. Cooler water means less evaporation.

  • Avoid overfilling. The higher the water level, the more water loss from splashing. Take into account the maximum number of people who use your pool - big groups in a pool displace a large quantity of water. Install an overflow blocker for when pool use is at its highest.

  • Make sure that splash troughs flow back into the pool.

  • Check regularly for leaks in pool/spa filtration equipment (leaks can interrupt use and cause expensive damage to building infrastructure and landscapes).

  • Sub-meter pools to track use and identify undetected leaks.
