Pool Construction Shutdowns

Californians are experiencing one of the most severe droughts in our state’s history. Our reservoir levels are critically low. In fact, 85% of the state is considered in a severe drought situation and over 50 cities in California are at risk of running out of drinking water. Already, the California State Water Board has cut off water to thousands of California farmers, declaring the use of water for agriculture and wine production unreasonable. In addition, most California cities are in the process of implementing stages of their Urban Water Management Plans, which in many cases restricts the use of public water to fill new swimming pools. In reality, the pool building industry can actually play a pivotal role in conservation efforts.

We Need Your Help Now

The Pool & Hot Tub Alliance has committed $200,000 in support of efforts to protect our industry and correct the record regarding the pool and hot tub industry’s use of water. We can’t do it alone. The more financial support we raise, the more we can invest in resources to change the perception and educate regulators about the impact the pool and hot tub industry has on the California economy.
