I was reading several stories how a lot of cities in California are banning the use of filling swimming pools with city water. But I was thinking could people consider filling up their swimming pools with saltwater from the Pacific Ocean itself and get around this swimming pool filling ban?
I have seen several ocean water pools before in Virginia Beach. There was a hotel in Virginia Beach before the hotel was torn down and replaced with 20 story tall building. The old Seahawk Hotel in Virginia Beach used to have a saltwater pool. The pool looked like a normal swimming pool but it had a saltwater ocean taste to it along with a chlorine smell.
There was a idea I was thinking about that maybe some coastal cities in California should consider building a separate system of PVC pipes and water mains that could be set up to pump in cleaned up seawater for toilet flushing and swimming pools along with for firefighting. The idea might also need sewer systems built for saltwater toilet flushing. The idea would be based off of Hong Kong's saltwater flushing toilets and water mains.
The idea is that if say San Fransisco or Long Beach replaced 300,000 freshwater toilets with saltwater. Along with that if they converted 400,000 of California's 1.1 million swimming pools to saltwater pumped in from the sea it might be enough to kill off of the California drought by providing a never ending source of water. The idea would be that if some of these major cities could reduce their needs for Colorado River Water they might be able to get rid of California's thrust for draining the dying Colorado River.
