Tips to be water wise in the pool\r\n

By following a few simple tips, you can keep cool in the pool and not need to continually top up from the tap.

Other ways to save water in your pool\r\n

By reducing evaporation with a pool cover, sheltering your pool from sun and wind, and properly maintaining your pool, you can keep cool, have fun and still save water. Discourage people from constantly jumping in and out to keep the water in the pool, not over the side.

A liquid pool cover creates a chemical barrier on the water's surface, reducing evaporation by up to 40%.


Using a pool blanket can be more affordable. If used with a roller, it can be easily removed before pool use and spread again after you've finished swimming for the day.

    To save water, only backwash your filter when necessary. If you keep your pool and filters clean you won't need to backwash as often.

    • Don't overfill your pool. This not only wastes water, but can also prevent your filter from working effectively. The water level should be about halfway up the skimmer box opening for the filter to function properly.
    • \r\n
    • Sand filters require backwashing, which can use up to 8,000 litres of water a year. You should backwash your sand filter once every 4–6 weeks. Only backwash until the glass goes clear – backwashing for longer just wastes water.
    • \r\n
    • Cartridge filters don't need to be backwashed.

    • 不要把泳池灌满。这不仅会浪费水,还会影响过滤器的有效工作。水位应该在撇油盒开口的一半左右,这样过滤器才能正常工作。
    • 砂滤需要反冲洗,每年可使用高达8000升水。你应该每4-6周反洗一次砂过滤器。只反洗直到玻璃变清——反洗时间过长只会浪费水。
    • 滤筒不需要反冲洗。

  • Leaks not only waste water, they can undermine the foundations of your pool. It makes sense to keep an eye on potential leaks and have them repaired as soon as you can.
