Alternatives To Draining A Swimming Pool

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. Before you do that, please consider an alternative offered by Weber Pools, a reputable swimming pool maintenance company in Dallas, Texas.

If you own a swimming pool and live in the Dallas Ft. Worth area, you are going to deal with hard water. Let’s face it, our tap water is loaded with calcium, magnesium, and other hardness minerals that cause your Calcium Hardness levels to increase in your swimming pool. 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, interior finish, filtration equipment, and decorative water features.

At Weber Pools, we realize that this is an issue that all residential and commercial swimming pool owners deal with and we have an alternative solution so you don’t have to drain your swimming pool anymore due to high Calcium Hardness, TDS, or CYA issues. 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 interior finish 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 interior finish when the outside temperature is above 80 degrees and the interior finish is no longer wet. Even though these don’t happen every time it isn’t worth the risk especially when you can be swimming in superior water quality when we are done. Due to these common factors, you should really think twice before draining your swimming pool.

The Puripool Process For Your Swimming Pool

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.

Reverse Osmosis filtration can help you with the following:

  • Lowers Calcium Hardness
  • Lowers Total Dissolved Solids
  • Lowers Cyanuric Acid
  • Lowers Salts
  • Lowers Phosphates
  • Lowers Nitrates
  • Removes Waterborne Diseases
  • So much more

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.
