Dangers Of High Calcium Hardness Levels In Your Swimming Pool
If you own a residential or commercial swimming pool in the Dallas area, you’re going to need to deal with calcium in your swimming pool. In our area, Calcium Hardness (CH) can be measured coming out of the tap at 300 parts per million (ppm) and higher. In the swimming pool industry, your pool is recommended to have between 200 and 400ppm. With that said, when you fill up your swimming pool with our tap water you are already close to the upper edge of what is recommended and since this number will only climb we feel it is important to discuss what the dangers of high Calcium Hardness levels in your swimming pool!
In the swimming pool industry, pool professionals will recommend draining and refilling your swimming pool every two to three years to prevent excess levels of calcium, magnesium and other hardness minerals from scaling your interior finish and filtration equipment. So, how does this happen? Well, when pool water evaporates, the calcium will remain in solution and gradually build up in concentration. When this happens, calcium will eventually scale your water tile line, decorative water features, the interior finish, and your filtration equipment. This is not only visibly unappealing when it happens but can also be extremely costly to remove. At Weber Pools, we are committed to providing you with not only the best-looking swimming pool but one that also has the best water quality too! That is why we offer a revolutionary filtration process that not only lowers CH but also gives you the best water quality to swim in!
As a Service Provider of Pure Water Industries, we proudly offer The Puripool Process. This is a mobile filtration service that comes to your residential or commercial swimming pool and recycles your pool water onsite with Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration. RO will lower Calcium Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Cyanuric Acid (CYA), salts, phosphates, waterborne diseases, and so much more without draining the swimming pool. Not only do we conserve 85% of the existing water (which is great during the drought) but we also put drinking quality water back in your swimming pool. This will make it easier to manage your swimming pool and if is performed every couple of years, it will make it easier to manage your water chemistry too!
Please keep in mind a standard drain and refill will not only waste the water but put moderately hard water back in your swimming pool. By using RO filtration we can easily take your calcium down to 150ppm which will give you better water quality and comfortability. Please keep in mind, RO filtration can be performed on most pools including saltwater. If you should have any questions about this service, please contact us today to learn more!
