Maybe there really is a crack or hole somewhere letting the water escape. Or maybe there is a different mechanism at work and your pool won’t need costly repairs. Maybe the culprit is evaporation.
On average, swimming pools lose approximately a quarter inch of water every day. However, factors like air temperature, humidity and wind intensity can significantly affect water loss rates. You can experience water loss up to half an inch a day even if you don’t have a leak.
Still, water conservation is important. Evaporation doesn’t just require you to refill the pool to maintain the water level. It increases your water bill. Due to chemical and heat loss, your other running costs will rise, as well.
Fortunately, there are strategies that can help you reduce evaporation and save water, energy, and your money.
