Warranty Concerns With PebbleTec Swimming Pools

When installing a new pool there are many different interior finishes that you can choose from. If you decide to go with PebbleTec or PebbleSheen it is vital you familiarize yourself with their warranty guidelines. They are strict with them and your warranty will be voided if you don’t follow the directions carefully! Specifically, following the recommended startup procedures is extremely important because that’s where the biggest mistakes are made. In the end, this could be the difference between the warranty covering damage or not. The interior finish in the first month is extremely sensitive to water chemistry and falling outside the guidelines could void any warranty. That’s why we hope this blog post helps to inform you of the following:

  • The break-in period
  • Startup procedures
  • Full up
  • Proper water chemistry

Break-In Period

This is the time period directly after the interior finish was installed. This period ends as soon as the enhancing process is complete and builder turns it over to you for startup.

Start-Up Procedures

The startup process includes following all directions extremely close. In this period you will need to test your water chemistry frequently, brush the interior finish every day, and add all chemicals necessary to keep it chemically balanced. Since the interior finish develops most of its durability in the first month that is approximately how long the startup process will last.

Fill Up

This process includes filling the pool all the way up to mid tile line with no stoppage. YOU MUST FILL UP THE POOL WITH TAP WATER….. DO NOT FILL UP THE POOL WITH SOFT WATER AND DON’T STOP THE FLOW OF WATER BECAUSE THIS CAN CAUSE A “WATERLINE” MARK ON THE INTERIOR FINISH. At which time the pool is filled, you will also want to turn on the filtration equipment and run it for a minimum of five (5) days.

Proper Water Chemistry

After you fill up the swimming pool you will want to make sure the water chemistry falls within the acceptable ranges listed below for the first month:

  • pH – 7.0-7.4
  • Total Alkalinity – 70-100ppm
  • Calcium Hardness – 150-250ppm (this can be challenging in certain areas)
  • Chlorine – 1-3ppm
  • CYA – 30-50ppm

During this time you will also want to brush the interior finish three times a day for the first three days and twice a day for the next ten days! You also don’t want to use any pool cleaner with wheels because it can leave tracks. Do your best to adhere to the above values and recommendations because failure to do so will void the warranty and in the end burn a huge hole in your wallet!

If you should have any questions about this or pool construction, please let us know!

How Ozone Joe’s Swimming Pool Ozone System Create a Clean and Clear Water for Your Pool?


This is a guest blog post from PST Pool Supplies

“Using ozone for your swimming pool is becoming more and more popular as individuals become more aware of how they work a what they can do for your swimming pool. Ozone is a natural gas composed of three atoms of oxygen. Its chemical symbol is O3. It is blue in color and has a strong odor. Normal oxygen (O2), which we breathe, has two oxygen atoms and is colorless and odorless.

Benefits of Ozone For Your Swimming Pool

  • Reduces chlorine/bromine usage up to 70-90%
  • Eliminates red, irritated eyes
  • Eliminates dry, itchy skin
  • Helps to reduce fading of colors on swimsuits
  • Improves water clarity
  • Eliminates foul chlorine/chloramine odors
  • Provides a more healthy swimming environment
  • Has No Effect on pH.
  • Greatly Reduces Maintenance Time.
  • Powerful than Chlorine – 55 Times More!
  • Compatible with Salt-Chlorine Generators.

At PST Pool Supplies we prefer Ozone Joe’s Water Purification System. We especially like installing the system after water purification because the benefits listed above work much better when calcium hardness levels are lower. This is a major issue in the Southwest United States where calcium coming out of the tap water is extremely high. When it comes to ozone systems, we have highlighted the Ozone Joe’s swimming pool ozone system 30,000 gallons product because it’s the most popular size for a swimming pool. Please note that they also sell Ozone Joe’s for spas, smaller pools as well as commercial size applications as well.

If you are tired of getting out of your swimming pool smelling like chlorine, having your expensive swimwear fade, your skin dry out or most importantly not being able to enjoy your swimming pool because of red, itchy eyes, this product is for you. They offer a standard warranty as well as an extended warranty on each purchase. This product will drastically increase your bather comfort and reduce your chemical consumption. If you should have any questions on how this product works, contact us today and if you are looking to purchase them at an incredible price, CLICK HERE!”

Reverse Osmosis Mobile Filtration For Commercial Swimming Pools!

A commercial swimming pool that is being used while the filtration process is being performed!

A commercial swimming pool that is being used while the filtration process is being performed!

Last year, we recycled numerous different commercial swimming pools with our Reverse Osmosis (RO) mobile filtration trailer for a variety of reasons. We’ve noticed an increase in these types of requests because, in Texas, commercial swimming pools are highly regulated due to the number of bathers. Not to mention, the cities have a lot more strict regulations when it comes to water chemistry in their swimming pools. Typically the following are reasons why a commercial swimming pool would be out of compliance:

  • High Cyanuric Acid (CYA) levels
  • High Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) levels
  • High Calcium Hardness levels
  • Presence of waterborne diseases

If any of the above issues are present, commercial swimming pools could be shut down until they are handled. Unfortunately, if it is in the middle of swim season it could mean downtime for the swimming pool, which is never great for the establishment or for those that want to swim in the pool!

Just because the water is blue and clear and is reading adequate levels of chlorine doesn’t necessarily mean it’s safe to swim in. So, how do commercial swimming pools deal with increases in calcium hardness, TDS, and CYA? What happens when there is a waterborne disease present? Our fill water in Texas is loaded with calcium and other hardness minerals. As water in the swimming pool evaporates, these hardness levels will increase in the swimming pool fairly rapidly because they don’t dissolve and they do remain in solution. For commercial swimming pools, the most common delivery of chlorine is by liquid injection. This liquid is loaded with salt, which causes the TDS levels to rise as well in the swimming pool. At this point, the commercial property will need to change out the water in their swimming pool. When this time comes around (could be once per year) Weber Pools can come with our RO mobile filtration trailer to recycle the existing water in the swimming pool. This is extremely beneficial to your commercial property because of the following factors:

  • No downtime – swimmers can swim in the pool while it is being purified.
  • The interior finish is never exposed
  • The water after purification is much better than tap. It’s actually drinking quality water!
  • Water Conservation – we can conserve up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool.
  • Lowers the chances of calcium buildup on the swimming pool if the process is performed regularly.
  • Removes waterborne diseases
  • Water quality is the best
  • Keeps your water within city and state regulations

How Do I Clean A DE Filter?


There are three different types of filters for your swimming pool. Are you familiar with what type of filter your swimming pool uses? The three different types of filters are diatomaceous earth (DE), sand and cartridge. As for types of filters and swimming pool products, we always recommend Jandy! In this blog post, we are going to highlight the pros and cons of a DE Filter, the benefits of them and how to clean them. In regards to residential and commercial swimming pools, sand filters seem to be the most common filter you will find in a backyard due to ease of use. However, DE Filters are pretty close second. If you talk to people in the industry, most people seem to think that DE Filters are more challenging to use but if you get used to them, they work the best for most swimming pools. This is because they filter down to the smallest micron and have the ability to keep pools extremely clear and clean.

Pros of DE Filters –

  • Filters down to 3 microns which are the smallest amount of the filters
  • Filters the largest surface area and keeps the pool the cleanest out of all of them
  • Best for pools with lots of vegetation/plant life in the backyard. If you have lots of trees, bushes, and plants that blow leaves into the pool this filter is the only choice for you.
  • Will clear up a green pool the fastest (some pool companies will even wheel these filters out to your pool to help clear it up faster)


  • Requires the most amount of maintenance especially after backwashing
  • Must always be aware of pressures as backwashing should occur at set limit to prevent pool from getting cloudy

For the most part, DE Filters are extremely self-sufficient but do require some work when it is time to backwash. Backwashing can be described as cleaning your filter after it’s collected debris and dirt from your swimming pool. It works by sending pool water in the opposite direction through your filter and out the waste or drains port. It is pretty easy to do and we explain that next……

How To Backwash Your DE Filter

  1. Turn off your filter and turn your valve to the backwash position. If you have a top mounted handle, place it in the backwash position.
  2. Turn your filter system back on and let it run for approximately two minutes or until the water is clear and free of debris
  3. Turn the system back off and place backwash valve back in normal filter position
  4. Run the filter for a minute or so and repeat steps 1-3 for about 30-60 seconds or again until the water is clear
  5. Turn your system back on and make sure to add DE powder to the skimmer as soon as possible as filter grids must be coated to prevent other issues.

How Much DE To Add After Backwashing

First and foremost, you will need to determine the square footage of your filter which you can typically find on the label located on the filter. The following is a breakdown of how much DE to add to the skimmer after backwashing:

36 sq ft. —–> 4.5 pounds (roughly 4.5 scoops)

48 sq ft. —–> 6 pounds (roughly 6 scoops)

60 sq ft. —–> 7.5 pounds (roughly 7.5 scoops)

The gauge on the top of the filter will make you aware of when you need to backwash. Typically, you can also check the manual to let you know at what PSI they should be back washed. Please keep in mind you will monitor this regularly as backwashing should occur as soon as possible when the pressure reaches its maximum. Also, if you own a DE Filter please plan on taking the filter apart at least once a year to completely hose down the filter grids and clean the inside of the filter to keep it functioning properly. If you should have any questions on how to operate a DE Filter or if you’re in the need of a filter clean, contact us today and if you are looking to make a switch in filters, Weber Pools can help you with that as well.

Can You Recycle Swimming Pool Water?


The simple answer to this question is yes! The other question would be why would you need to recycle swimming pool water? The answer to these questions and how we do it will be answered in this blog post. If you have a swimming pool this is a service you will definitely want to know more about. It will save you time, money and swimming in pools with recycled swimming pool water are a lot more fun.

As a swimming pool owner, due to evaporation, you will need to add water to your swimming pool from time to time. During the long hot summer months, the amount of water you will be adding will increase due to increased evaporation. Our water in the Dallas area is loaded with calcium, magnesium, and other hardness minerals. When you introduce this water into your swimming pool, the hardness content in the water will increase. It increases because as water evaporates, the hardness minerals remain in solution and gradually build up. Unfortunately, as these minerals build up they will start scaling your tile, the liner of the swimming pool, filtration equipment, spillways and decorative water features. Soon, your backyard paradise will be covered with calcium flakes that can be extremely hard to remove. With that being said, to help combat this problem, we recommend changing out the water in your swimming pool every two years at a minimum. This will help prevent excess calcium buildup, struggles with maintaining proper chemistry in your swimming pool and most importantly your swim experience will be much better because of the feel of the water.

At Weber Pools, we offer a mobile filtration trailer that is equipped with six sets of Reverse Osmosis (RO) membranes that can filter calcium, magnesium, total dissolved solids, cyanuric acid, phosphates, salts and waterborne diseases without draining the swimming pool. There are two hoses that come out of the trailer which continually feeds the swimming pool water into the trailer while the RO membranes lower the hardness. This process will return drinking quality water back to the swimming pool, the liner will never be exposed and you can swim in the pool while the process is being performed. This process will conserve up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool and will give you the best water quality to swim in. The benefits of using this process will help extend the lifespan of your investment, will allow you to conserve much-needed water and give you a much better end product than a drain and refill. Not to mention, we can filter most residential swimming pools in less than a day.
