How Inflatable Cofferdams Can Save Pool Water During Maintenance

When it’s time to work on your swimming pool, you may be tempted to just drain the water and refill the pool once you’re finished. But there may be a more conservative way to move the water out of your way. Have you tried reusing pool water? An inflatable water barrier can both remove water from your work area and allow you to refill the pool later.

Don't feel like draining and refilling your entire swimming pool for repairs? Why not store the water and reuse it afterward? Here's how! Click To Tweet

Advantages of an Inflatable Cofferdam During Pool Construction

Pool repairs don’t have to involve wasting an entire pool’s worth of water, only to refill it again. Save yourself some time and effort while conserving water. With an inflatable Aqua-Barrier, you’ll enjoy several benefits for your construction project, including:

  1. Save water and money
  2. Less time spent refilling pool
  3. No damage from dumping the water

1) Save Water and Money

A typical backyard swimming pool holds thousands of gallons of water. Considering that an American uses approximately 100 gallons of water per day, you’ll be throwing out nearly 5 months worth of water if you empty your entire pool. Imagine how much that adds to your water bill! Don’t waste your money or your water–store the water temporarily until you can refill the pool.

2) Less Time Spent Refilling Pool

Reusing your pool water will save you time after the project is finished. Instead of waiting for pumps to refill the pool after construction, all you have to do is open the Aqua-Barrier’s seal and let the water spill back into your pool. You’ll be done in a flash!

Pro Tip: Before you inflate the Aqua-Barrier, clean any leaves, bugs, etc. out of your pool. The last thing you want is to refill your newly refurbished swimming pool with dirty water.

3) No Damage from Water Dumping

It’s generally illegal to dump pool water so that it flows down a storm drain since that introduces chlorine and other chemicals into the water, potentially harming fish and other sea creatures later on. Fortunately, reusing your pool water eliminates both the hazard and the need for water dumping. Just make sure any excess spillage is contained in your backyard.

A Quick, Simple Pool Fix

An Aqua-Barrier can make your pool repair job both easier and cheaper than the usual method. Don’t waste your money, time, or effort on disposing of thousands of gallons of water during your construction project. With an Aqua-Barrier, reusing pool water has never been easier.

water park repairWith El Nino patterns leaving many areas in drought conditions, homeowners are suffering from “pool guilt”. Water is scarce and putting thousands of gallons into a hole in the backyard does not sit well with some. However, pools do not waste as much water as you think and do not require refilling often. Many contractors and pool repair companies are turning to pool water conservation to reduce the impact on water supply even more.

3 Options for Pool Water Conservation

Here are three ways you can conserve water, and still do a perfect job for your client.

Reduce Water Evaporation & Leakage

While the amount of water that escapes from your pool can sometimes be less than what’s wasted from a leaky toilet, evaporation and leaks do occur. Help your clients with water conservation tips that reduce water evaporation and leakage.

  • Recommend a good pool cover to reduce evaporation by about 90-95%
  • Check the pool pump to be sure it’s the correct size and speed for your client’s pool.
  • Have your client monitor their water bill for any changes that might indicate a leak and repair leaks right away.

Inflatable tanks

At times, conserving water during a pool repair job can seem impossible. You may be forced to drain all of the water (a precious commodity!) from the swimming pool to properly repair the pool. Storing the water during a repair like this allows you to manage pool water conservation while still performing quality work. Add an Insta-Tank to your pool repair equipment. These reusable inflatable tanks are designed to be swiftly deployed and suitable for storing fresh potable water – making them perfect for pool repair! Compact and light, they are easy to store, deploy, and move around if necessary. When you finish the repair, simply drain the water back into the pool, deflating and storing the Insta-tank for future use.

Partially Draining the Pool

Sometimes you can make a repair without completely draining the pool. Use a water-filled temporary cofferdam to dewater only the section of the pool needing the repair.

When strategically placed, the Aqua-Barrier® temporary cofferdam allows you to completely drain one side of the pool while holding water in the other side. Combine the Aqua-Barrier® with Insta-Tank to store the water removed until the job is done.

Clients can rest easy knowing that pool water conservation is just as important to you and your company as it is to them. Not only will they appreciate the quality of your work, but your clients will be able to enjoy their pool that much more knowing they had a part in protecting our water resources.
