If you live in California, you shouldn’t be surprised by all the news about water conservation. California has been facing drought conditions for quite awhile now and even though we were expecting a huge El Nino storm with lots of snow and rain we didn’t get what we were hoping for which has left us in a continued predicament. In a recent article in the Los Angeles Times, “Then, despite the fact that numerous reservoirs in Central California are already nearly empty, and that our “strongest El Niño on record” turned into just an average precipitation and snowfall year in northern California, the state evidently decided that California survived its ongoing water crisis.” Whereas in Los Angeles, which is in its 5th year of a drought and dealing with less than 8 inches of rain annually it is stated that it will continue with strict water conservation goals and mandatory cutbacks. El Nino didn’t hit us like expected, which means all individuals must continue to treat water wisely and conserve as much as possible.
As a homeowner, there are a variety of activities that you can implement on a regular basis to save water around the house but none bigger than not draining your swimming pool! With an average size of 20,000 gallons in most backyards, every homeowner can save that water by recycling instead of draining their swimming pool every two years! Due to our hard fill water, which is loaded with calcium and other hardness minerals, pool water should be changed every two years to prevent calcium buildup on the water tile line, the liner of the swimming pool and filtration equipment. This is a phenomenon that everyone will face and to keep your swimming pool looking good as well as prolong the lifespan of your investment, changing out the water is a must. Calcium, which is naked to the human eye literally destroys your swimming pool and filtration equipment. Removing it from your water tile line is an expensive proposition so changing out the water before it gets bad is something we highly recommend.
