Using Reverse Osmosis to Purify Commercial Swimming Pools
Over the last couple of years, we’ve 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 the 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 scaling 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
