Commercial Swimming Pool Regulations for Dallas Swimming Pools
Recycling Commercial Swimming Pool Water in Dallas
Weber Pools is a Greater Dallas/Fort Worth pool service company that specializes in working with commercial properties. We work with numerous management companies in some of the largest luxury developments in the DFW area. Weber Pools is familiar with the property management process, and we carry the current pool service licenses and insurances required by most commercial facilities. In addition, we also are aware of all the current and ever-changing health department swimming pool requirements and processes.
There are very few pool service companies that offer the professional service that Weber Pools provides and that all commercial properties demand. We have office staff and highly qualified pool service technicians and repair technicians that cover the Great Dallas/Fort Worth area. We are committed to providing and being available for not only regular everyday needs but for crisis situations as well. Commercial swimming pools are highly regulated and there can be many different reasons why they could be shut down. Nobody wants swimming pools to be shut down especially during the summer time but we can be available to help out when needed! We want to highlight a recent situation that many commercial swimming pool owners face and that is high cyanuric acid (CYA) levels. Just last week we got called out to a job on a 25,000-gallon commercial swimming pool that had levels of 100 parts per million (ppm) CYA. They were having an inspection the next day and with levels that high, they would’ve been shut down.
So, we showed up with our 40,000 gallons per day mobile filtration Reverse Osmosis unit to help them. With mobile filtration we can help with the following issues without draining the swimming pool:
- Calcium Hardness
- Cyanuric Acid
- Sequestering Agents
- Bacteria and Viruses
- Total Dissolved Solids
Cyanuric acid helps reduce the chlorine loss by protecting the free chlorine in the pool from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, reducing the amount of chlorine needed to maintain proper sanitizer levels. The reason why in Dallas the regulations are set at 100ppm as a maximum is the effectiveness of the chlorine to act as a disinfectant. Higher levels will bind with the chlorine, making it slower acting to kill bacteria and micro-organisms, and prevent algae. When this happens, a water change is recommended but they didn’t have enough time so we rolled up with our mobile filtration trailer instead to purify the water using the Puripool Process in less than a day. The end result was conserving 85% of the water in the swimming pool, increasing the effectiveness of the disinfecting agents and most importantly getting their CYA back into a normal range.
