Cover the pool when not in use to control evaporation and save energy from heat loss. Up to 95% of water loss from evaporation can be saved through the use of a pool cover when the pool is not in use
Reduce the temperature if possible, particularly when the pool is not in use.
Limit the frequency of pool refilling. Only refill pool when required for water quality reasons.
Backwash pool filters only when necessary.If the backwash cycle is controlled by a timer, check and adjust the frequency of the cycle to ensure optimal efficiency. Use head loss to determine backwash frequency (8-10 psi loss)
Where feasible, use filter backwash for irrigating lawns or plants and shrubs or for cooling tower make-up.
Lower the pool's water level as much as possible to reduce the amount of water that can be splashed out.
Check the pool regularly for cracks and leaks and make repairs promptly. If pool drops more than 1 inch per day then investigate for problems.
Replace shower heads in the changing area to low flow fixtures and post signs to encourage pool users to limit the time spent in the shower.
Add a fence, trees or shrubs to provide a wind break to reduce evaporation.
Utilize a pool vacuum that recycles water when cleaning the pool.
