L.A. residents may be required to cover their swimming pools, such as this mesh pool cover.

Los Angeles has seen a lot more waterproof pool covers the last few years. Since the LA Times released an article in 2015 addressing a severe drought in LA, officials established water restrictions that highly encouraged homeowners to use pool cover that conserve water.

Fighting Drought With Your Pool Cover

Those restrictions were enforced in multiple phases in an effort to fight the drought. Enforced conservation practices also included not watering plants during or after rainfall, hosing off sidewalks, and irrigating ornamental turf on public street medians. Many California residents were also encouraged to cover their pools with an approved swimming pool thermal cover to prevent excess evaporation.

Even though many restrictions were lifted as the drought ended in 2017, investing in a waterproof pool cover is always beneficial to water conservation.

Comparing Pool Cover Types

While there are many cover types out there, such as mesh pool covers and leaf pool covers, these do not have a significant impact on reducing the evaporation of pool water.

The best pool covers to use for water conservation are automatic pool covers. Automatic covers are waterproof, safe to walk on, convenient to use, and will preserve water temperature making the pool less expensive to heat.

Color Variations

Colors on your screen or brochure may not match the actual color of your product.

Due to the many variations in monitors, phones, and browsers, color samples and product examples may appear different on different screens. Computers and mobile devices are not all calibrated equally and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. The same is true for printed items such as brochures and other sales literature. 

In addition, the colors of our products photograph differently under different lighting conditions. For example, photos taken in full sunlight will vary from photos taken on a cloudy or overcast day. Similarly, shadows from nearby objects can affect the color and transparency of our products. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Colors will vary from batch to batch.

Many of our products’ materials are not available through typical stores and vendors and therefore must be custom manufactured specifically for our use. In order to control costs and provide you with the best value possible, our raw materials are produced in large batches and can often take several months to receive. The colors of our materials can, and often do, vary slightly from batch to batch. Although we make every effort to minimize color variations, we cannot be responsible for these differences when they occur. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Color names are subjective and may not be what you think the color should be.

For example, we use the name “putty” to describe some of our products. Your idea of the color “putty” may be different than someone else’s idea of “putty”. In addition, products may have the same color name but may not be the exact same color. For example, we have different shades of “black”. Please do not order using color names as your only guide. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

If it is important that your product be an exact color or shade, it is highly recommended that you inspect the actual product prior to its installation and address any concerns with your local independent installer. Most independent installers do not offer refunds or accept returns due to color variations.
