Pool & Water Features

  • Periodically check your pool for leaks if you have an automatic refilling device.
  • Install covers on pools and spas and check for leaks around your pumps.
  • Make sure your swimming pools, fountains, and ponds are equipped with recirculating pumps.
  • Use a grease pencil to mark the water level of your pool at the skimmer. Check the mark 24 hours later. Your pool should lose no more than ¼ inch each day.
  • When backwashing your pool, consider using the water on your landscaping; some dilution may be required.
  • Avoid installing ornamental water features and fountains that spray water into the air. Trickling or cascading fountains lose less water to evaporation.
