Draining Versus Recycling Your Swimming Pool Water

With fall officially here and cooler temps in the air now is the time where many residential and commercial swimming pool owners think about draining their swimming pools. STOP!!! Before you do please learn more about the dangers and how we can help.

If you own a swimming pool and live in the Dallas area, the Southwest United States or the Southern United States you are going to deal with hard water. Let’s face it, our tap water is loaded with calcium, magnesium, and other hardness minerals. This is the leading reason why swimming pool owners choose to drain their swimming pools. In the Dallas area, the water coming out of the tap is roughly 300 parts per million (ppm). The recommended hardness levels for a swimming pool are between 200 – 400 ppm. Over time, as water evaporates in your pool the hardness minerals remain in solution and gradually increase in concentration. When this happens, you will notice calcium scaling on the water tile line of the swimming pool as well as water features, your interior finish, and your filtration equipment.

At Weber Pools, we realize that this is an extremely common problem that all residential and commercial swimming pool owners deal with and have come up with a solution so you don’t have to drain your swimming pool anymore due to high hardness minerals. In the Dallas area, there are a large number of fiberglass and vinyl swimming pools. The risk of the liner collapsing or the swimming pool “popping out” of the foundation when you drain it is extremely high and common. The amount of money to replace the liner or reset the swimming pool is extremely expensive and not worth the risk especially when there is a much better solution. Concrete swimming pools are also at risk because you can easily crack the liner when the outside temperature is above 80 degrees and the liner is no longer wet. Due to these common factors, you should really think twice before draining your swimming pool.

The Puripool Process

Weber Pools utilizes mobile Reverse Osmosis (RO) systems that can come to your residential or commercial property and recycle the swimming pool water instead of draining it. The interior finish is never exposed and since the water isn’t removed from the swimming pool you never have to worry about the plaster cracking or the swimming pool popping out of the foundation. With mobile RO you lower the risk of ruining your investment and you are left with better water quality than our tap water.

We realize that most swimming pool owners don’t think about issues like this but the above issues can happen and we want to make sure that you protect your investment by not causing major damage that can be extremely expensive.
