Owning a swimming pool takes a lot more work than just swimming in it for enjoyment. Yes, those backyard barbecues, summer pool parties and cooling off in the water is a blast but what happens when the pool gets dirty? What happens when calcium hardness levels rise in the swimming pool? Are you prepared to use more chemicals to keep it clean? Owning a swimming pool can be a lot of fun but as the water ages in the swimming pool it can be harder to take care of and hiring a professional to take care of it is always a good idea. In the Dallas area, the water coming out of our tap is on average 300 parts per million (ppm) calcium hardness. It is recommended to have anywhere between 200-400 ppm. As we start to approach spring and summer and the temperatures heat up, evaporation in pools also increases. When this occurs calcium and other hardness minerals stay behind in solution and gradually increase.
As calcium hardness levels increase in the swimming pool you are going to notice staining on the tile line, decorative water features, the liner of the pool and the equipment. Unfortunately, simple brushing will not remove it and investing in a pumice stone is going to leave you frustrated, with tore up fingers and more of a mess than what you started with. Others will invest in sequestering agents but if you don’t remove the calcium from the water it’s not going anywhere……
The only way to properly lower calcium hardness in swimming pools is with Reverse Osmosis (RO) membranes. With RO you can lower calcium hardness, total dissolved solids, phosphates, salts and so much more. With our mobile filtration trailer, we can come to your house or commercial property and recycle the existing water in the swimming pool without draining it. The “Puripool Process” uses RO filtration to lower all solid levels in the swimming pool and leave the owners with the best quality of water in their swimming pool. Instead of the normal hassle drain and refill, we can filter most pools in less than a day, conserve 85% of the water in the swimming pool and give you a much better product than normal tap water. Not to mention, if you have this service performed every 2 years you can prevent high levels of calcium from building up on the tile and water features.
This is truly a great way to increase the lifespan of your investment. At Weber Pools we want to give you the best possible service. Not only can we help you with this but we also offer weekly service, maintenance and repair work as well. Call us today to learn more!
