A pool leak detection during droughts and other tips for Palmdale, Lancaster and Quartz Hill residents to conserve water. California is now in its fourth year and the drought situation is serious. Not only do you need to keep your commercial and residential pools clean and properly maintained, but also make sure water stays in instead of escaping during droughts.

Although some communities have put bans on filling pools like in the bay area here in Antelope Valley laws are still normal. With that being said Lancaster, Palmdale and Quartz Hill area pool owners should check these below tips and ideas to help to conserve water in these extra dry times.
