A properly managed pool or spa can be an appropriate use of water. Use this tip to help save water and money.

Cover Your Pool.

An exposed pool loses 30 to 50 gallons of water per square foot per year to evaporation. During the hot summer months, you may lose up to 2 1/2 inches of water each week.

Pool covers reduce evaporation by 90 percent, limit windblown debris, and conserve energy.
