POOLCORP realizes the importance of responsible water management. We have launched a study to compile and benchmark our United States sales centers’ water usage and will work to set goals to reduce our impact on freshwater stores. Sales center employees are trained to protect the waterways and drainage present on our properties to keep contaminants from infiltrating them. Additionally, we have created training documents to educate our employees and customers on drought preparation and response.
POOLCORP’s water conservation efforts also extend to the products we sell. We promote filters that can simply be rinsed, using less water rather than having to run a backwash cycle for a pool. Solar pool covers prevent excessive evaporation and can reduce the amount of water that needs to be added to a pool by 30-50% and also reduce the amount of chemicals that need to be used by 35-60%. We offer products to sustain salt-based pools, as well.
Our Horizon network offers low-flow and Smart Water irrigation products that can help reduce freshwater reserve impact by 15%. Horizon also features a line of all-organic fertilizers, pesticides, and soil amendment products. Information on these products can be found at the Good Natured for All website.
