Comments on: Question of the Week: When was the last time you fixed a leak? http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2010/03/qotw-fix-a-leak-2/ The EPA Blog Tue, 28 Jul 2015 21:52:05 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.1 By: Cohl http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2010/03/qotw-fix-a-leak-2/#comment-17797 Tue, 27 Apr 2010 03:45:15 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/?p=1357#comment-17797 In my business we find homeowners who are losing water through two sources. The first is old swimming pools leaking around fittings or through structural cracks. The other more notorious loss of water is due to evaporation. Most homeowners have no idea how much water they’re losing. I usually recommend that they buy a solar pool cover. A pool cover can capture and retain almost 70% of the water loss due to the effects of evaporation. We cover a lot of these ideas in our site

But if people would THINK AND PLAN, instead of impulsively following the advertisements, life could be a joy for everyone. Instead, the human race greedily plunges toward ecocide and self-extinction. On a shrinking planet a growing economy has no future.
