Dallas Weber Pools Puripool

About Weber Pools Puripool Service

The Puripool Process is more convenient, less wasteful, and puts cleaner, safer recycled pool water in your pool without exposing your plaster or pool shell to air and potential damage and this process is normally complete in less than 24 hours. The Puripool purification process pulls water from your pool and uses reverse osmosis, ultraviolet light and ozone to scrub your water clean and returns pure bottled quality water to your pool. Our Puripool process removes chemicals and impurities like cyanuric acid, phosphates, TDS, viruses, bacteria, allergens, calcium and other hard water minerals without the use of harsh chemicals that could be dangerous to pets and children and hard on pool components. Our process is so safe you can swim while we clean and polish your water and it saves about 85% of the water.

The Proper Way to Test Water Chemistry In Your Pool

If you enjoy taking care of your own swimming pool, are you testing the water chemistry correctly and accurately? The two major choices you have when it comes to testing your water are either test strips or using the drop test method. At Weber Pools, we recommend Taylor swimming pool test kits for the best accuracy. Whether or not you take care of your swimming pool, you should familiarize yourself with Taylor test kits! In today’s swimming pool industry there are a variety of ways to test chemistry levels in your swimming pool and we highly recommend Taylor swimming pool test kits first. Taylor test kits are going to be the most reliable and frankly, the only way to go. With that said, we hope that this blog post gives you some understanding of why buying a Taylor pool test kit will always be the way to go. Not to mention, making sure your weekly pool service uses this type of test equipment too!

Taking a water sample into a pool store will always be the easiest but there are so many variables that can make that more challenging. For example, it takes time out of your day to drive there, depending on where you go the person testing your water might not be very well educated and it has been proven that if you go to a variety of different pool stores, you are most definitely going to get a variety of answers. That’s why we feel it’s extremely important that you know how to test the water.  Using Taylor swimming pool test kits will make your life a lot easier, you are going to get the most accurate results, and those results will equate to a much better pool experience. With Taylor test kits you can test for Calcium Hardness (CH), Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Cyanuric Acid (CYA), chlorine, pH, Total Alkalinity (TA), and so much more!

Do to the wide range of colors and numbers it will allow for the highest level of inaccuracy.

Taylor test kits for swimming pools have been around since the late 1960’s, but the company has been around since 1930. They are extremely popular in the industry and have a wide range of testing products. One of the biggest benefits of using these test kits is they use titration for testing accuracy. This is where you will count the drops used, instead of relying on a visual color comparison which provides a larger range of miscalculation. This will give you the most accuracy when it comes to reading numbers.

 

Keep in mind, you will have options when it comes to testing kits and we want to help you find what is best for you and your swimming pool needs! If you have any questions on why we choose Tayor swimming pool test kits, contact us today at 800-535-0778

  • Do you currently take care of any commercial properties? If so, which ones?

  • What licenses, certifications, and insurance do you carry?
  • How many different people will be taking care of the property?
  • What makes you different from other pool maintenance companies?

We work well with numerous management companies of some of the largest luxury developments in the DFW area. Weber Pools is familiar with the property management process, and we carry the current pool service licenses and insurances required by most commercial facilities.

We have office staff and highly qualified pool service technicians and repair technicians that cover the Great Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Please also keep in mind that Weber Pools owns and operates a mobile filtration Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration trailer that comes to your residential and commercial property.

Benefits of Using Reverse Osmosis Filtration On Your Swimming Pool

With major drought news hitting the headlines in Texas again, homeowners with swimming pools need to start thinking about how they can save water. One of the biggest ways to make an impact on our current drought is by not draining your swimming pool. A residential swimming pool can save on average 20,000-gallons of water in a 24-hour period and a commercial swimming pool owner can save so much more!

That’s why at Weber Pools we use Reverse Osmosis (RO) mobile filtration on your swimming pool water and we want this blog post to help explain to you how it works and why it’s the best solution for your swimming pool.

RO filtration might seem complicated, but it’s really quite a simple water filtration process. Reverse Osmosis has been used for numerous years to desalinate water and convert it to drinking water. Most commonly, people are familiar with the under the sink RO systems. They are extremely common but are also extremely inefficient when it comes to water conservation. Typically, an under the sink RO will waste seven gallons of water before it produces one good gallon of drinking water. The reason for this is due to water pressure. Simply put, the more water pressure, the less water loss.

Reverse Osmosis is a process in which dissolved inorganic solids (such as salts) are removed from a solution (such as water). This is accomplished by water pressure pushing the water through a semi-permeable membrane. The membrane only allows the water to pass through, not the impurities or contaminates (like calcium, total dissolved solids, cyanuric acid, waterborne diseases and salts). These contaminants are removed from the water as both of them are channeled into two separate systems. Ultimately, these contaminates go out a separate waste stream.

Our mobile trailers are completely insulated, they run twenty-four hours a day because they are no louder than an A/C unit.  They are equipped with a 3-Phase, 480V diesel generator, and we guarantee that the quality of water returning to your pool is better than tap. The way we do that is, you can actually drink the water returning to the pool!! Due to the fact that we have booster pumps in our trailer, the water pressure as it hits the membranes is around 200psi which equates to conserving on average 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool.

The need for this service has never been greater than now. The drought in Texas is the worst it has been in three years! The concept of mobile filtration has been around for decades and using it to purify swimming pool water is relatively new. When temperatures warm up, the risks of draining a swimming pool are high.  With our mobile filtration trailer, we can lower Calcium Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids, Cyanuric Acid and so much more in your swimming pool without exposing the interior finish!

So, why hassle with pumping the water from your pool, paying for the refill and then trying to figure out the complicated chemicals needed to re­balance your pool water, when Weber Pools can take care of it for you? In less than a day, we can filter your existing pool water and lower Calcium Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Cyanuric Acid (CYA), phosphates, salt, bacteria, waterborne diseases and provide you with the best quality of water for you and your family to swim in!

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

pst-oj-30mr-ozone-joes-pool-ozone-system-30000-gallons-78564.1487306558.160.160

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.

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?

DEV60_vpready_filter_1

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)

Cons

  • 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.
