In the last couple of months, Texas has been in the news for not only water quality but potential drought conditions again! As most people already know, Texas isn’t new to drought conditions and if it wasn’t for a large amount of rain last year this would still be an issue. According to recent reports, it appears that parts of Texas are headed back in that direction and it wouldn’t surprise us to see this trend continue. “It may not sound like much but in this week’s drought monitor, moderate drought conditions have returned to close to 2 percent of Texas. The percent of the state listed as abnormally dry has more than doubled to 13 percent. The dry conditions are forcing many to flock to stores like Home Depot to try to conserve water. Aside from yesterday’s one-one-hundredth of an inch of rain, San Antonio hasn’t seen a significant amount of measurable rainfall since early June. That lack of rain is starting to take its toll on the area water supply, possibly bringing back drought conditions.”
About 2.5 years ago, Weber Pools contacted Pure Water Industries because we knew they had something we believed in and knew could make a major impact to help our drought conditions. Did you know that one of the largest water conservation acts that a homeowner can do is not drain their swimming pool? Yes, that is correct using our water conservation technology, a homeowner or commercial swimming pool owner can save on average 20,000 gallons of water in a 24-hour period by not draining their swimming pool. Weber Pools uses the Puripool Process and gives swimming pool owners the opportunity to recycle their swimming pool water instead.
There are a variety of reasons as to why swimming pool water should be changed every couple of years. Here are a list of a few that would require a water change:
- High calcium hardness
- High total dissolved solids (TDS)
- Waterborne diseases
- High cyanuric acid levels (CYA)
One of the biggest issues that swimming pool owners will face are rising calcium levels in their swimming pools. Calcium comes from our fill water and as water evaporates in the swimming pool, calcium remains in solution. As these levels rise, calcium will stain the water tile line, the liner of the swimming pool and begin to scale filtration equipment. It will also make taking care of your swimming pool more challenging. That’s why we offer the Puripool Process because it lowers calcium hardness, TDS, waterborne diseases, CYA and much more while conserving 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool. It uses Reverse Osmosis (RO) membranes to filter out contaminates while providing our customers with water that is much better than tap. So we ask all of Texas to start thinking ahead and make an impact to help prevent the drought from continuing. Call us today to learn more about how we can help you!
Weber Pools is located in the Dallas area but will recycle swimming pool water in parts of Oklahoma, San Antonio and Austin as well!
