The Pool Evaporation Rate Calculator is a handy tool designed to estimate the rate at which water evaporates from a swimming pool’s surface. By inputting key factors such as pool surface area, temperature difference, wind speed, and humidity factor, users can quickly determine the approximate amount of water lost due to evaporation over a certain period.

## Formula of Pool Evaporation Rate Calculator

The calculation utilizes the following formula:

Evaporation rate = K * A * ΔT * v * (1 – H)

Where:

- A: Pool surface area (measured in square feet)
- ΔT: Temperature difference (in degrees Fahrenheit)
- v: Wind speed (in miles per hour)
- H: Humidity factor (a dimensionless value between 0 and 1)
- K: Constant value (varies depending on formula and units)

## Table of General Terms

Here’s a table outlining **example water loss** for different pool sizes and wind speeds assuming an average temperature difference of 10°F and 50% humidity:

Pool Size (sq. ft.) | Wind Speed (mph) | Estimated Water Loss (gallons per day) |
---|---|---|

200 | 5 | 3.5 |

200 | 10 | 5.0 |

300 | 5 | 5.3 |

300 | 10 | 7.5 |

**Remember:** These are **general estimates** and may vary depending on your specific climate, pool temperature, and other factors.

## Example of Pool Evaporation Rate Calculator

Let’s consider a pool with a surface area of 500 ft², a temperature difference of 10°F, a wind speed of 5 mph, and a humidity factor of 0.5. Plugging these values into the formula:

Evaporation rate = K * 500 * 10 * 5 * (1 – 0.5)

Assuming K is 0.002 (as a constant value), the calculated evaporation rate would be the result.

## Most Common FAQs

**What factors affect pool evaporation rate?**The pool surface area, temperature difference between water and air, wind speed, and humidity level are the primary factors influencing evaporation rate.

**How can I reduce pool water evaporation?**Installing a pool cover, minimizing water splashing, reducing wind exposure around the pool area, and maintaining optimal humidity levels can help mitigate water loss through evaporation.

**Why is it important to monitor pool evaporation rate?**Understanding the rate of water loss through evaporation is crucial for maintaining proper water levels, managing chemical balance, and optimizing pool maintenance efforts.
