Use a pool cover to help keep your pool clean, reduce chemical use and prevent water loss through evaporation.


Minimize or eliminate the use of waterfalls and sprays in your pool. Aeration increases evaporation.


Make sure your swimming pools, fountains and ponds are equipped with recirculating pumps.


Don’t overfill the pool. Lower water levels will reduce water loss due to splashing.


If you have an automatic refilling device, check your pool periodically for leaks.


Trickling or cascading fountains lose less water to evaporation than those that spray water into the air.


When back-washing your pool, consider using the water on salt-tolerant plants in the landscape.


Use a grease pencil to conduct a bucket test to check for pool leaks. An unnatural water level drop may indicate a leak.
