Lowering Calcium, TDS, and CYA In Swimming Pools
When it comes to owning a residential or commercial swimming pool in the Dallas Ft. Worth area, there are many dangers of having high Calcium Hardness (CH) levels in the swimming pool! When it comes to calcium in our tap water it is coming our hard already. In our area, the calcium coming out of the tap water is on the higher end of what is recommended for a swimming pool but it’s important to note that swimming pools need a certain amount of calcium to keep the interior finish intact. It is when those levels get too high that problems start to occur. For swimming pools, the standard and recommended amount of Calcium Hardness (CH) in the swimming pool industry is between 200 – 400 parts per million (ppm) but in our area, the Calcium Hardness levels coming out of the tap is 300 ppm and higher! The challenges for residential and commercial swimming pool owners is when calcium levels get too high in their swimming pool. When these levels continue to rise, scaling will occur on the water tile line, the interior finish, filtration equipment, decorative water features, spillways, and salt chlorinators (if you have one). This scaling is not only hard to look at but difficult and expensive to remove. So, swimming pool owners should think about changing out the water in their swimming pools every couple of years to prevent scaling and expensive repairs.
When Calcium Hardness, TDS, and CYA levels get high, you can choose to drain and refill your swimming pool or you can recycle it using The Puripool Process. At Weber Pools, we offer Reverse Osmosis (RO) mobile filtration to lower Calcium Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Cyanuric Acid (CYA), phosphates, nitrates, salts, and waterborne diseases without draining the swimming pool. This service puts great quality water back in your swimming pool and you can swim in the pool while it is being filtered. Not to mention, we can conserve up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool which is great for water conservation.
