Calcium Hardness and Swimming Pools
Even though calcium is great for a lot of things, the same can’t be said about your swimming pool. You might choose to take a variety of supplements and drink all forms of milk to increase your calcium levels because it can be extremely beneficial to us as humans but as for your swimming pool…the same can’t be said. If you live in many areas of the country and especially Texas, our fill water is loaded with calcium and other hardness minerals which can destroy a lot of things that you use in your household. Over time, calcium ruins your decorative faucets, scales your shower heads and leaves stains/water spots on the sinks and surfaces of your house. It can be extremely difficult to get rid of and a nightmare on your pocketbook when it comes time to replace things in the house.
In Texas. our water is hard! It is loaded with calcium, magnesium and many other hardness minerals which means that over time you will have to deal with hard water issues everywhere including your swimming pool. As the warmer weather approaches, evaporation occurs but as that occurs the hardness minerals remain in solution and build up in concentration. Over time, the calcium levels in the swimming pool continue to rise and become visible on the tile, liner of the pool and equipment. As the calcium continues to scale itself on the surfaces of the swimming pool it will inevitably cause more and more damages, not to mention, destroys the lifespan of your investment. With that being said, it is highly recommended that swimming pool owners change our their water every two years to prevent major damage to the swimming pool’s interior finish, til, and equipment.
