Water is sprayed onto the pool surface, creating a ripple effect, so the diver can see the surface. Without it, the water takes on a glass-like appearance, and all you can see is the bottom of the pool. The diver needs to be able to spot the water surface in order to enter the water correctly in the vertical position.

You usually see them in diving competitions. The water spouting into the pool gives the divers perspective on the distance to the surface of the pool.

Divers don't make a big splash when diving into a pool because of the way they have their bodies straightened out. It's the difference between throwing a rock into water, vs. throwing a small stick into the water.

To wash off the chemicals of the pool water, especially the chlorine which is very drying

The small pool is a hot tub; divers go in to keep their muscles loose.

Most of the water will be scattered by the spinning winds as a spray.

Use extra chlorine for about a week to shock the pool. As long as the water stays clear, you don't have a problem. If the pool gets cloudy, consult a professional.

because the water is so cold from a high dive they go in the wading pool to warm back up

Pool water is treated with chemicals to make it safe to swim in (young children frequently relieve themselves in the pool). The chemical are not good for the skin and therfore pool users should shower BEFORE (to go in clean) and AFTER (to wash of the chemicals) they use the pool.

Cover your pool if it will not be in use. Remove food sources for the bugs, other dead bugs and foliage. Spray existing bugs with soapy water.

Divers go in the spa so they don't get cold after each dive.

If they are in your pool simply add 1 cup of dish soap to your water. this will lesson the surface tension of the water and allow them to fall into the water and die. If they are flying around your pool get a yard spray like raid.

Not exactly. The high winds can, however, spray some water out of a swimming pool. A tornado can also damage the walls of above ground pools, causing water to spill out.

There are laws requiring a diver's rope in a pool if the pool is a public access pool. This varies depending on the state where the pool is located.

I would use it to clean the pool, swish it around with water, then throw the whole thing out and fill with clean water for the child to play in. There is a spray that Clorox has out called Everywhere spray that also cleans and is suppose to be safe for children to be around.

The strong winds of a microburst may spray or splash some water out of a swimming pool, but other than that, no. Unlike a tornado, air in a microburst does not travel upwards.

dabblers eat stuff at the surface of the water and divers eat stuff under water

Water fountains circulate water using a water pump. Water is pumped out of a low pool of water, up through the inside of the fountain, where it then falls back into the pool of water. A simple fountain might have a single spray of water pointed upward, whereas more complex fountains can have many spray heads pointed in different directions creating designs and effects. The water is under pressure from the pump pushing it through tubes.

spray it down then pour a little rubbing alcohol on it the whole thing then spray it down again and if that doesn't work then get a sponge with soap and scrub it and then spray it with water and it should work.

User Avatar

I have seen many pools with spray nozzles that spray return water as a mist over the surface of the pool. If the circulation pump is turned on at night when the outside air temp drops, the misted water releases some of its heat into the atmosphere, and it falls into the pool at a cooler temp. The best way to cool your water in the summer is to buy fountains that plug into the outlets that carry water from the pump. Besides being famous for cooling the water, they are pretty.

I would spray the nest (at night) IF I could find it using soapy water. I would keep a squirt gun or sprayer that goes a distance to spray them with soapy water, they can be shot out of the air and

they go as deep as the bottom of the pool

You can kill them with a spray bottle of skin-so-soft oil and water mixter spray all around the sides of the pool and put son directly on the water. It makes the pool smell good and doesn't hurt anyone or anything! Oh and your skin is so soft after swimming! I knocked em down in an hour and killed them completely off in a couple days!

Evaporative-cooling. Spray water on the cement and it will be cool too.
