We could be seeing more pool covers in Los Angeles homes this summer. According to this recent LA Times article, residents could be required to cover their pools. On April 23, 2015 new watering restrictions that were approved by Los Angeles water officials could be put into effect to address the city’s water conservation efforts by the summer months.
Will Pool Covers Be Required In Los Angeles To Fight The Drought?
Under the new rules water-saving restrictions would be enforced over six phases instead of the current five. Los Angeles has been in Phase II since 2009. If the city moves into Phase III, L.A. residents would be encouraged to cover their pools with an approved pool cover to cut down on evaporation by the time the city reaches Phase IV.
Various pool cover options exist such as mesh pool covers, automatic covers, and leaf pool covers. To reduce evaporation from your swimming pool you can cover a swimming pool with a solar blanket, which is also called a bubble blanket, for a couple hundred dollars. A roller will cost $500 to $700 more. These types of pool covers minimize evaporation, however, they do not provide any safety. A pool safety cover that also reduces evaporation will cost anywhere from a couple thousand to ten thousand or more depending on the style and size.
