Water Awareness Month

  • Keep pool water level lower to reduce water loss caused by splashing.

  • Meter the water that refills the pool; if you notice a sharp increase, you may have a leak.

  • Direct pool filter backwash water to plants or use it for other beneficial purposes. Or, use cartridge filters that can be cleaned without having to backwash.

  • Install a pool cover to prevent water evaporation from your pool. In Phoenix and Tucson, the average evaporation rate is approximately 6 feet per year. 90%-95% of pool and spa water lost to evaporation can be saved by installing a pool cover.
