How much water evaporates from a pool each day?

August 2, 2014

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.

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.
