​Swimming pools are great luxuries to have and there’s a lot of reasons to own one. However, many consider pools to be a “waste of water” - especially in California where we are currently in a drought.

While I don’t necessarily agree with this sentiment I do think it is important for ALL pool owners to take the necessary steps to reduce their impact on the  environment. Here, we’ve detailed a number of things you can do to be more environmentally conscious. Some are easy to do and some require a little more work.

We’ve ordered these from easiest to implement to hardest (you’ll see the easiest ways first). Hopefully, you’ll decide to implement at least a few of these.

Questions about liquid pool covers answered
One of the most frequent questions we get here at the Liquid Pool Covers Head Office is in regards to unheated pools and whether or not using a liquid pool cover will be worth while. After all, a non-heated pool isn't consuming loads of energy (and therefore money), so what is the appeal?

Here's the honest truth, my friends:

Liquid pool covers have been proven to reduce overnight heat loss by about 50%. This is a big deal if you are not heating your pool, because it will allow you to keep your water warmer, for a longer period of time.

Heatsavr and Ecosavr are able to retain that much heat because they protect your water against evaporation. During this process, as an added bonus, using our products will also lower the amount of water loss your pool experiences naturally. You won't have to refill your pool as often, which not only saves water by saves you work and reduces the amount of cold water you are forced to add to your pool!

As you can see, the benefits are extensive! I don't expect you to believe every word I say, however, so I've included a pretty impressive story from a long-time Heatsavr user. Just keep reading...

Using a liquid pool cover like Heatsavr is pretty much one of the easiest ways to cover your swimming pool.

Manual dosing requires pool owner or operator to do some very simple calculations to figure out the dosage rate, and a minute or two to actually pour the liquid into the swimming pool either daily or weekly. Not too difficult.

There is also an option of installing an Automatic Metering System which will actually dose the Heatsavr into a pool each day automatically. After installing the system, all the pool owner / operator has to do is change the bottle when it gets empty, and a few simple annual maintenance tasks.

Installing and programming the system is quite easy, and we have actually filmed a video of the process so that you can see it for yourself. Watch that video here: HS115 Installation Video
Just like most equipment, especially items that have moving parts, the HS115 Automatic Metering System does require a bit of TLC to maintain in optimal running order. The few annual maintenance issues can usually be taken care of in less than half an hour. If you are considering installing one of these systems and want to know what kind of "work" will be required of you, or if you already have one installed, here are some of the most common care-taking tasks:

This time of year is affectionately known as "opening season" within the pool industry. Memorial Day is often the unofficial sun sports commencement date, and swimming pools around the continent are open for business!

Residential swimming pool owners can dose their pools on a weekly dosage at a recommended rate of 4 ounces of Heatsavr for every 400 - 600 square feet, or approximately 20,000 gallons of water.
