Summer and pool weather are officially here! If you have a pool, the best way to reduce water loss from evaporation is to use a pool cover. Water in your pool can evaporate more than 1.75 inches every week during the peak of summer. In just one week during the summer, an average pool owner can save 330 gallons by using a pool cover. Did you know that a pool cover can save as much water as a similarly sized lawn needs for irrigation over an entire year? Fortunately, Contra Costa Water District offers a rebate of up to $50 on qualifying pool covers!
