We are all being placed under increasing pressure to preserve water. People in the US are currently not facing a ban on the ownership of private swimming pools, but it is important that water is not wasted, and especially if your pool is being repaired. Pool repair companies are therefore always looking at ways to conserve water during a pool repair.
Conserving Water For Your Pool Is Becoming Increasingly Important
There are several ways in which any pool owner should already be taking steps to conserve water. A decent pool cover is absolutely essential. Water naturally evaporates and during sunny days the rate of evaporation is at its highest. This is why a cover is so important – evaporating water condenses on the underside of the cover because there is nowhere else for it to go. When the weather cools, or once the tiny beads of condensed water has combined with other tiny beads of water and gained weight, the water falls back into the pool. A good pool cover will decrease the rate of evaporation by up to around 95 percent.
It is also of course important that pool repairs are carried out as quickly and as effectively as possible. A crack in the side of your pool will give the water a chance to escape into the surrounding ground. From there it will rise again during hot days and evaporate.
If A Pool Repair Is Needed It Makes Sense Not To Drain The Entire Pool
Sometimes when a pool is drained the water is simply allowed to drain away into the ground or into the nearest wastewater system. This is a terrible waste of water and should be avoided. A water-inflated cofferdam can be used to create a temporary water storage facility which means that the water can be returned to the pool once the repair has been completed.
For larger pools it is much more convenient to create a barrier within the pool around the area that is being repaired, and a water-inflated cofferdam comes in as valuable here too. By creating a barrier, you only need to drain the area around the repair that has been cut off from the rest of the pool, and not the entire contents of the pool itself.
