Does the color of water effect evaporation rate?

    Yes. Darker water will absorb more heat, and will therefore evaporate a little more quickly. It’s pretty much the same thing as having water in a dark container, though, as the color of the water (the H2O molecules) doesn’t actually change; it’s actually other particles which affect the way the light bounces off those molecules and strikes our eyes.

    It is true that darker water evaporates at a slightly quicker rate than lighter colored water, however it is not easy to tell just how significant a difference there is. In terms of color though, if water appears blue vs green vs teal, etc. there is no difference in rates of evaporation.
