How Much Water Evaporates from a Pool Each Day?
It can be easy to misdiagnose pool water evaporation. Evaporation rates depend on both geographic and environmental factors. Pool owners who notice a sizeable water loss in their pool should implement the Bucket Test to determine whether their pool has a leak or is just experiencing routine water evaporation. If pool owners or maintenance workers are constantly filling up the pool, there may be a leak.
How Much Should a Pool Evaporate in 24 Hours?
On average, swimming pools lose about a quarter of an inch of water each day, yet variations in wind intensity, humidity and sunlight can drastically change water loss rates.
Some of the strongest and most intense wind in the country can be found in mountainous regions. The wind will undoubtedly have an effect on pool water, as wind can blow water particles and cause speedy evaporation. Other windy regions include the Great Plains, the Great Lakes and most coastal locations.
