With the drought looming over us for the past few years many homeowners felt they would hold off on that luxury because of the water restrictions. Well, this may be your year to do it with some of the water restrictions lifted for filling your pool. I’ve spoken to Mike Bradley of NorCal Pools who happens to
also be the company we used to install our pool. And it appears this is the perfect time to set up an appointment to have a pool company give you a quote. Mike says; ” Don’t wait until it gets hot to book an appointment because you are beating the clock to get your pool in by the summer!”.
According the the California Pool and Spa Association (CPSA) website, once the 2016 Urban Water Management Plans are developed and implemented by local cities and water districts it is expected that the number and type of unwarranted water use restrictions the CPSA will have to respond to will be substantially reduced. Hopefully swimming pools and spas will no longer be targeted going forward in a manner that threatens the construction or remodeling of swimming pools, spas and hot tubs. In addition CPSA says, the good news is that public entities seem to be moving away from fill restrictions and permit bans for pools, spas, and hot tubs and centering their attention on covers as the primary conservation restriction applicable to the industry.
This is good news! And although we should all continue to conserve water even if they lift water restrictions (that is a good habit to always have) we can now feel comfortable about building or remodeling a pool with hopefully a pool cover and new energy efficient equipment to also conserve energy!
