Water Quality In Swimming Pools


Swimming in quality water is always critical but just because the water is clear and blue doesn’t mean it’s always safe to swim in. This thinking should always be more of a concern when you swim in commercial/public swimming pools. Weber Pools is a premier Dallas pool service administered by a staff with decades of experience in the industry. We are a Certified Pool Operator that serves the greater Dallas / Fort Worth area. We are literally a one-stop shop for all your pool needs — whether that consists of pool cleaning, repair or general pool maintenance. We specialize in both residential and commercial swimming pools. As for commercial pools, 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. In addition, we also are aware of all the current and ever-changing health department swimming pool requirements and processes.

When it comes to quality, that word can go far beyond just the work that is performed. Everyone who hires a service company always wants quality but this also pertains to the water as well. We are committed to our service and to make sure your steps, benches and walls of your swimming pool are brushed and free of debris. Emptying the skimmer basket and pump basket along with skimming the surface of the pool to make it look clean always happens. Making sure there are adequate amounts of chlorine is always a must. We also make sure the pH is balanced too. But even when all of these are done, it doesn’t mean that the water is safe to swim in. This is where things can get confusing because even when the pool looks great and the chemistry is correct, there still can be issues and they might not be detectable with standard water tests.

Tap/fill water has been an issue in the past in California, Arizona, Texas and other states. The possibility of people urinating and defecating in the swimming pool is always a possibility. With that said, here are some precautions you should always take when you are ready to swim:

  • Rinse off before and after you swim
  • Never drink the water
  • If you see someone urinating or defecating in the pool, let someone know and exit the pool immediately
  • If you feel sick after swimming (intestinal) call your doctor and get tested for waterborne diseases

Another way you can make sure you are swimming in the best quality of water is by having Weber Pools recycle your swimming pool water with our mobile filtration system. We offer Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration for swimming pools. This process lowers calcium hardness, TDS, cyanuric acid and removes waterborne diseases without draining the swimming pool. The Puripool Process provides your swimming pool with drinking quality water for swimming in. If you’re interested in knowing more or having us test your water, contact us today!

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.
