TEST YOUR POOL TODAY AND FIND OUT FOR SURE....
Pool water evaporation rates per day.
Is your pool leaking? It can be easy to misdiagnose pool water evaporation. Evaporation rates depend on both geographic and environmental factors. Pool owners who notice a sizeable water loss in their pool should implement the Bucket Test to determine whether their pool has a leak or is just experiencing routine water evaporation. If pool owners or maintenance workers are constantly filling up the pool, there may be a leak.
On average we have found that 1-10 pools are leaking (Pool Leaking) a considerable amount of water, which intern can cost the home owners hundreds of dollars a year. Most swimming pools lose about between 10 -20 mm of water each day, yet variations in wind intensity, humidity and sunlight can drastically change water loss rates. We find that pools built on canals fronts are highly prone to loss of water and also in wide open acreage properties.
Well with the way water pricing is going these days it might be worth looking at your options and maybe considering retiring your pool for another alternative. Even converting your old pool into a underground water storage tank.
