Many parts of the U.S. are experiencing drought or near-drought conditions, primarily in the West and Southeast. If you are a swimming pool owner concerned about how much water you use, here are steps you can take to minimize the amount of water you need for your pool.
1. Keep it covered.
Most of the water in your swimming pool will be lost to evaporation. The pool temperature, the outside temperature, humidity and wind will all influence how quickly water evaporates.
An in-ground pool can cost anywhere from $25,000 to $50,000, depending on the size, materials and features of the pool you wish to install. While materials account for a large portion of this amount, you can expect to spend a pretty penny on the installation itself. Fortunately, there are ways you can save money when it comes to installing your pool, which will leave you with more money to spend on features and high-end materials.
Looking for a way to spice up a tired old swimming pool? Rather than spend a fortune remodeling it or trying to change your entire landscape design, why not add a beautiful new water feature to what's already there?
A waterfall can be added just about anywhere in an existing pool. All you really need is a tile or stone wall that can hide a pump to draw water up from the pool and spill it back over the edge into the pool again.
At the end of the day, few things feel better than relaxing in the hot tub. The warm, swirling water has a way of melting the stress away. However, while hot tubs can feel luxurious, they can also present a few risks. Follow these rules (and make sure others follow them, too) in order to ensure your safety when using the hot tub.
Don't bring glasses into the hot tub.
If you own a pool in an apartment complex or community area, you will want to take good care of it so that it's successful. It can be difficult to find time to manage a pool on your own if you have a lot of other important business tasks, so many community pool owners choose to invest in pool management services to make their jobs a lot easier. Take a look at the following information to better understand the reasons as to why you should consider investing in pool management services.
