- Keep proper pool maintenance by checking for leaks regularly. This one seems like a no-brainer; after all, if your pool is leaking, clearly there is water being lost. So how do you actually check for pool leaks? The trick is to look for damp spots in the soil around your pool. Additionally, loose or cracked tile is often an indication of a water leak.
- Acquire water conserving pool supplies like a pool cover. Pool maintenance experts suggest that the use of a pool cover can reduce the amount of water lost to evaporation by as much as 95%. Keeping this water in your pool isn’t just good for water conservation; it’s an easy way to cut down on costs.
- Lower the water level and lower the temperature. For those of you who have a pool heater, it is recommended you reduce the temperature. In regards to water level, many pool maintenance experts suggest keeping the water level at least a full inch over your bottom pool tile.
