Atlanta is Facing Increased Water Costs - Are You Next?
by Monique Nelson on July 5th, 2011

As of July 1st, the cost of water in Atlanta, GA - a state that already boasts some of the highest water rates in the country - increased by 12%.

The increase is going towards repair of the city's water and sewage system. Over the past decade, Atlanta has increased in population by more than 1 million people. This population boom has put a great deal of stress on the water and sewage systems and, in order to maintain standards and allow for the continued increase in population, the city must pay for repairs, upgrades and more.

If your facility had to find a way to budget an additional 12% for your water bill, would you be able to?

You could if you also found a way to conserve 30 - 50% of the water your pool loses to evaporation. In fact, if my math is correct, that would save you money, even given an extreme increase in your water prices.

You may not be facing the same hike as Atlanta - yet. But will you be next?

Population growth is important to the health of a community, but water is becoming more scarce - and therefore expensive - at every turn. Even if you are not experiencing high water costs right now, starting a campaign of conservation is the best way to protect your facility against future costs. It can also help you start saving money today.

Heatsavr, the liquid solar pool cover, has been proven to save between 30 - 50% of water normally lost to evaporation. In addition to water savings, it can also help your facility cut energy costs by up to 40%. For a cost effective, set and forget, no-nonsense system, it is an incredibly large step towards lower operating costs and higher conservation for your facility.

If you would like to find out if Heatsavr is right for your facility, send me an email with all your questions. Monique Nelson - [email protected]. That's me. Better yet, why not give me a call? (800) 661-3560 - its free!
