Lower pool water levels are common. Water evaporates. While you can’t change the weather or other factors that influence water evaporation, you can certainly be more water conscious this summer in Sherman, TX. Let’s discuss some of the reasons that water evaporates and how to prevent the phenomenon.
We’ll cover these main points:
Causes of Evaporation
- Intense heat contributes to water loss. You may see more water loss when temperatures fluctuate between night and day. The difference between the air temperature and your pool water is what causes the water to evaporate. Warm water will evaporate more than cooler water
- Low humidity
- More water evaporates when the humidity is lower. When the humidity is higher, the air cannot absorb any more water, so more of it stays in your pool. Dry heat absorbs more water.
- If your pool is exposed to the sun or wind, you’ll experience more evaporation.
