Evaporation Control: Best Practices for your Swimming Pool

Daisy Pool Covers has put together some information on best practice evaporation control for swimming pools that may be of use when talking to consumers in the market.

Owning a swimming pool in Australia today can be environmentally friendly and sustainable if the right processes are put in place by pool owners. Products that are Climate Care Certified have been approved by SPASA Australia to exceed the industry benchmarks on water and energy efficiency in swimming pools.

Evaporation is the biggest cause of water loss in a swimming pool but can be controlled. Products that are certified as Smart Approved WaterMark and Climate Care Certified through SPASA advocate that the number one solution to evaporation is putting a solar cover on your pool. This will save 97% of your pool’s water loss through evaporation.

The good news is that there is also a way reduce evaporation even when your pool cover is off or you cannot have a pool cover. Products such as AquaSaver put a non-toxic, ultra-thin invisible barrier on the pool surface, reducing water and heat loss. Liquid evaporation control is not as efficient as a physical pool cover, but it will still save some water when a pool cover can’t be used or only part of your pool is covered by a solar cover.

For best practice swimming pool evaporation control, an AquaSaver style product is best used in conjunction with an existing solar pool cover to help save water when the cover is off. If not all of the pool can be covered (for example, an odd shape) or no pool cover can be used, the invisible liquid barrier can save you up to 30% of evaporation on your pool.

For those with mesh, debris pool covers, this style of product will also help reduce evaporation and heat loss through the mesh.

There are many options for evaporation control in your swimming pool but always ensure your solution is Climate Care Certified by SPASA and has Smart Approved WaterMark certification for best practice evaporation reduction.

Summer Payback Winner – December

Our most recent Summer Payback winner has been chosen, and she couldn’t be happier!

Nicky from Carramar WA, purchased her 525B Pool Cover from Gareth at Jim’s Pool Care Carramar. Pictured below with Gareth from Jim’s and John from Daisy Pool Covers.

When we spoke with Nicky, she explained that they had never had a pool before moving into their current home. The pool needed a little bit of love and care to get it back to looking better than it did.

Nicky knew nothing about looking after a pool as she has never done this before. So, she called Jim’s Pool Care as she felt it was better for someone to come over and look at her pool.

Gareth from Jim’s Pool Care explained that if you are going to be using the pool constantly over a long period of time that it would be better to use Daisy Pool Cover, as they are the best in quality but also the best in support and services.

Nicky says that choosing Jim’s Pool Care and a Daisy Pool Cover was the best thing she has ever done as her pool looks great but has also learnt so much about how to look after her pool. Considering that she never knew anything about Solar Covers before and having Gareth recommend using Daisy, Nicky can see that it was the right choice for her family’s needs.

If that wasn’t a great enough outcome, Nicky went on to say that she never has won anything ever before! When Daisy Pool Covers told her that she had won her money back for her pool cover she just couldn’t believe it.

“Who gives anybody their money back by simply registering their warranty when purchasing their product,” Nicky said. She had to confirm with her husband that this was correct and not some sort of scam!

When her suspicions were made obsolete, Nicky was so happy that a company that she knew nothing about until recently were happy to giver her the purchase price back. Nicky is very happy that Daisy came through very quickly with their promise of what was won and she couldn’t be happier and has thanked everyone at Daisy Pool Covers involved.

Interesting Installations #2

In the lead up to December the team was busy out there installing new pool covers and rollers all around Australia. Some are straightforward, others are more of a challenge and we love that!

Upgraded Below Ground Box Drive Ring

Due to recent feedback and product testing, we have upgraded the Below Ground Box Drive Ring. We now have V1 of the cast stainless steel drive ring (part #378).

We are still working on the geometry to make the stainless steel drive gear and ring smoother, however the parts are rock solid now. As always with Daisy, if you experience any issues with a product we will fix it, so please let us know if you need any parts.

With the cast stainless steel drive gear (part #360) and cast stainless steel drive ring (part #378) we have been unable to destructive test the units and so we at Daisy are extremely happy with the product. The Below Ground Boxes are so popular that we have made the units even more reliable and we are always working hard to lift capacity and holding stock of all sizes in the Sydney factory, enabling us to dispatch almost immediately.

All new FM and LP Rollers are being supplied with the new and improved brake castor.

Note: The castor pin sizes are different, if you need to replace new castors (part #379) the pins (part #380) need to be changed as well.
