Swimming Pools Save Water Compared to Backyard Lawns
Premier Pools & Spas of Sacramento – Keith Harbeck (President) explains how swimming pools save water and can actually help during the drought crisis.
Compared to a lawn which is typically what we remove, this yard now with the pool and decking area will use about 1/3 of the water that a lawn would use. - Keith Harbeck, President
Replacing your lawn with a covered swimming pool and drought friendly landscaping uses 70,000 gallons of water over five years compared to 200,000 gallons of water over the same time period with a traditional lawn.
