Reverse osmosis can be a highly effective method for removing impurities and contaminants from water, including minerals, dissolved solids, and other substances that can affect the clarity and quality of your pool. Let’s explore the science behind reverse osmosis, the benefits of using this method in cleaning commercial pools, and how frequently should this method be used.


Understanding the Science of Reverse Osmosis


Reverse osmosis (RO) is a water purification process used in swimming pools to remove impurities, contaminants, and minerals from the water. Here’s how reverse osmosis works in a pool:

Pre-Filtration: This step involves removing larger particles and debris from the pool. This pre-filtration helps protect the delicate RO membranes from damage by coarse contaminants.

Reverse Osmosis Membrane: When the pool water is pressurized and forced through the semi-permeable membrane, it separates the water into a purified and concentrated waste stream.

Purified Water Collection: The water stream is collected and returned to the swimming pool. This water is much cleaner and can help improve the overall water quality of the pool.

Waste Stream Disposal: The concentrated waste stream containing the impurities and contaminants blocked by the RO membrane is usually discharged or sent to a drain.

Continuous Monitoring: Reverse osmosis is typically continuous until the desired water purity level is achieved. The pool water is circulated through the RO system until the water quality meets the specified standards.

The Benefits of Reverse Osmosis for Commercial Pools


The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reminds the owners of public-used pools to prioritize swimming pool cleaning and maintenance as a key to disease prevention.

Hiring a pool cleaning service to conduct pool maintenance is one way to ensure you provide guests with a safe and healthy swimming environment. Wondering if you should invest in reverse osmosis for swimming pool cleaning? Here are some of its benefits:

Crystal Clear Water: Reverse osmosis removes pool impurities resulting in an exceptional clarity to pool water. Swimmers will enjoy a sparkling pool that’s a pleasure to swim in.

Improved Swimmer Comfort: Water treated with reverse osmosis is gentler on the skin and eyes, making the swimming experience more enjoyable for guests.

Longer Pool Lifespan: By reducing the buildup of scale and mineral deposits in the pool equipment and on pool surfaces, reverse osmosis can extend the lifespan of pool infrastructure and help you avoid costly pool repair and maintenance.

Eco-Friendly: Reverse osmosis is an environmentally friendly solution for pool water treatment. It reduces the need for harsh chemicals and conserves water by efficiently purifying and recycling pool water.


How Frequently Should Reverse Osmosis Be Done?


The frequency of reverse osmosis treatment for your commercial pool depends on several factors, including pool size, usage, and water source quality. You may consider:

Regular Testing: Conduct water quality tests to monitor the levels of minerals, contaminants, and TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) in your pool water. When these levels exceed acceptable limits, it’s time for a reverse osmosis treatment.

Heavy Usage: If your pool experiences heavy usage during peak seasons or events, consider more frequent reverse osmosis treatments to maintain water quality and clarity.

Local Water Quality: The source water quality in your area can also impact how often you need to perform reverse osmosis. Areas with high mineral content or poor water quality may require more frequent treatments.

Consult Professionals: It’s advisable to consult with pool maintenance professionals who can assess your specific pool needs and recommend an appropriate schedule for reverse osmosis treatments.
