Tips, Tricks and Ideas to be Water Wise during the California Drought
Splash Pools and Construction, Inc. – Serving San Bernardino, Riverside, Los Angeles and Orange County
The drought in California is a major concern for home and pool owners, as well as us pool builders. What you might not know is that having a pool and surrounding decking actually uses less than half the water than an irrigated lawn. Seriously? Yes!!!!
If you already have a pool, then you are off to a great start. Here are some swimming pool water saving tips to avoid water evaporation and be water wise with your pool this summer:
- Install a pool cover to reduce water evaporation by as much as 90%.
- Shut off waterfalls, fountains, and other water features to reduce water loss and evaporation.
- Check the pool for leaks. If you suspect your pool has a leak, contact us for help.
- Minimize splashing or lower the pool’s water level to reduce “splashout.”
- Plug the overflow line when the pool is in use.
- Replace sand and DE filters with cartridge filters that do not require backwashing.
- Keep your pool clean to reduce frequency of backwashing.
- If your pool is heated, reduce the water temperature to reduce evaporation.

You get what you pay for
This is a perfect example of you get what you pay for. This homeowner hired a cheaper contractor to do his patio and masonry work the first time. When we came in to build our pool and masonry work, he realized how bad a job his previous contractor had done for him. So we had to remove most of what the other contractor had previously done. It cost the homeowner double to redo it. This Upland Swimming pool is a Roman-Grecian style with a large baja step and a raised spa with a tiered stone spillway from the spa into the pool. We added a feature pot centered behind the spa, which gives it a nice focal point.
When choosing your next Upland Pool Builder- please contact

We are the best choice for an Upland Pool Builder.
This backyard was designed for a friend of ours that has a young family. We included a pool, spa, baja shelf, and of course the waterfall and slide. You guessed it, the kids love the slide the best. All the neighborhood kids love coming over here now. The Hayward LED Lights in the pool and spa at night make it a perfect setting for relaxing. This is one of the first pools to have the Hayward remote control system that allows you to turn off and on everything from your smartphone.
