Weekly Pool Service, The Best Investment For Your Pool!

Dallas Pool Service

An Investment In Your Swimming Pool

As a residential or commercial swimming pool owner, how do you take care and manage your swimming pool? Are you willing to check the water chemistry regularly, skim the debris out daily if necessary and do all the other things necessary to make your swimming pool look great? We recently had conversations with a variety of swimming pool owners who state, “The vacuum won’t stay on for more than 20 minutes, the motor clogs up, so I go in with a screwdriver to make it turn again…. and the dirt/ just won’t clear up all the way. I’m having to backwash it every day for about 2 minutes. I truly regret getting a pool! I feel so bad because my 7-year old boy really wants to swim and I just can’t get the pool right!” After this conversation, we found out he does have a pool service and quickly fired them!

Let’s be honest, taking care of a swimming pool isn’t as easy as it looks. Anytime you have a large body of water, extremely hot temperatures (the pool water is over 90 degrees) it becomes more and more of a challenge. Not to mention, dirt, debris, and everything else add up to making a swimming pool a nightmare for most people. But at Weber Pools, we want to make owning a swimming pool much easier on you and that’s why our weekly pool service and maintenance program is the best! The bottom line is, no matter how proud you are, if you have no clue how to take care of a swimming pool, you shouldn’t. To be honest, it’s not easy especially when things go wrong and the water temperature is above 90 degrees.

So, let us ask you a few questions….

  1. Do you know how much chlorine to add to a 20,000-gallon swimming pool to raise it from 1ppm to 5ppm?
  2. Do you know how much acid to add to a swimming pool with a pH of 8.2 and you need to lower it to 7.6?
  3. Do you know how to check for phosphates in your swimming pool?
  4. Do you know what to do when your Cyanuric Acid levels are above 100ppm?
  5. Are you willing to skim your pool regularly?
  6. Are you willing to vacuum it from time to time?
  7. Are you willing to brush the water tile line and interior finish of the swimming pool to prevent buildup?
  8. Do you know what to do when calcium starts to scale your tile and water features?
  9. Do you know how to backwash and when to do it?
  10. Do you know what to do when your plumbing is leaking?

If any of the above overwhelms you, then you need to hire a reputable weekly service and maintenance company that can help make owning a swimming pool easy. At Weber Pools, we offer weekly pool service and maintenance for both residential and commercial swimming pools. We also offer The Puripool Process which can help with calcium scaling too. 

We would love to talk to you about your pool needs, offer you real solutions to meet those needs, while also saving you money. As pools become more advanced and technology-driven, the days of the old pool guy who showed up in flip flops and muscle shirts will be over. We believe we are a cut above most pool companies because we stay informed and educated about our industry. This is an important part of the Weber difference.

The Importance of Clean Commercial Swimming Pool Water

Weber Pools Commercial Pool Service

 

 

 

 

Water Quality In Commercial Swimming Pools Is Important

We are well into summer, which means so is heavy public swim season in the Dallas Ft. Worth area. Swimming in water parks, hotels, resorts, apartment complexes and any other commercial swimming pool can be a lot of fun but the challenge will always be wondering whether or not it is clean? Anytime you have large bodies of water, numerous swimmers and especially children, you never know what you are swimming in! Keep in mind that just because the water is blue, it doesn’t always mean that it’s safe to swim in and at Weber Pools, we are concerned about your safety! We have been servicing swimming pools for twenty plus years and most of our staff has been with us for ten years or longer. The biggest key for us is to make sure you’re swimming in a pool that is sanitary and free of any contaminants. We do that by offering the following services:

  • Commercial Swimming Pool Maintenance and Repair
  • Puripool
  • Any many more

Commercial Swimming Pool Maintenance and Repair

Weber Pools Monthly Pool Service covers the Dallas/Fort Worth and Plano areas and includes the cost of service, as well as all of the additional costs that would normally occur as the result of standard pool upkeep (filter cleaning/backwash, chemicals, conditioning, etc). In addition, there are no hidden costs that will arise aside from unexpected repairs that are unfortunately out of our control. We have set up our bids this way so that budget projection will be less of a headache.

Weber Pools is a Greater Dallas/Fort Worth pool service company that specializes in working with commercial properties. We work well with numerous management companies of 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.

We proudly offer the following Commercial Pool Services:

  • Commercial Pool Cleaning
  • Equipment Repair & Retrofit (Energy-Efficient Upgrades too)
  • Custom Pools and Spas
  • Plaster, Coping and Tile work
  • UV Water Treatment
  • Stain Removal
  • Deck repair
  • Control Systems
  • Salt Systems
  • And so much more

Puripool

The other service that we offer and what has truly taken the residential and commercial swimming pool industry by storm is the Puripool Process. It’s an alternative to draining a swimming pool by recycling the water instead! If you were swimming in a community pool, wouldn’t you want the water to perfect? If the answer to that question is yes, then we have the perfect solution for you!

Due to high use and sanitation requirements, total dissolved solids (TDS) and hardness minerals in commercial swimming increase at a much faster rate than residential swimming pools. The chances of people urinating in the swimming pool or even pooping do happen which can lead to waterborne diseases but with Puripool Mobile Filtration all of this can go away without draining the swimming pool or losing any swim time. Our mobile filtration system comes to you and lowers calcium hardness, total dissolved solids, cyanuric acid, phosphates, salts and so much more including getting rid of waterborne diseases! So, instead of wasting all that water because someone pooped in the pool or the solid levels are too high, call us so we can help you get back on track without shutting down the swimming pool or wasting the water!

How Clean Is Your Commercial Swimming Pool Water

Cloudy Commercial Pool Water

Water Quality and Commercial Swimming Pools

If you frequent commercial swimming pools have you ever questioned the water you are swimming in? Have you ever thought about when the last time they changed it out, or if the water chemistry is balanced, or why the water is so cloudy? Depending on how busy the pool you are swimming in will always determine the water quality. Chances are, the larger number of bathers, the worse the water is. For example, chances are the water is worse at a high-end resort with numerous guests compared to an apartment pool but no matter the situation, water quality, and your safety should be yours and their number one concern.

Weber Pools is a Greater Dallas/Fort Worth pool service company that specializes in working with commercial properties. We work well with numerous management companies of 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 are also aware of all the current and ever-changing health department swimming pool requirements and processes.

With this type of knowledge and experience, this has allowed us to not only take care of commercial swimming pools but also help them with their water quality. That’s why we want to highlight what happens at a high-end property with numerous bathers. If you are either at a water park or resort there are numerous factors that go into the clarity of the water. The following are a few of them:

  • Lotions
  • Suntan oils
  • Body Oils
  • Sweat
  • Hair Products
  • Makeup
  • Urine
  • Alcohol
  • Number of bathers
  • So much more

When this happens, it can cause the water to look extremely cloudy. The water might even look “old!” Typically, in water parks or high-end resorts, you are going to deal with the factor of urine because most people will not get out of the pool which can make your eyes burn. These factors, along with increasing levels of Calcium Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids, and Cyanuric Acid demand a water change. But do you really want to shut down your swimming pool?

The Puripool Process

At Weber Pools draining a pool isn’t necessary. The Puripool Process allows us to recycle your pool water onsite with Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration. This process will remove all of the above issues and bring your pool water back to life. You can even swim in the pool during filtration!

If you are curious to know how this service will benefit you, contact us today because not only will you see the difference in your water, but you will feel it too!

 

 

Why Recycling Pool Water is Better Than Draining!

Puripool Mobile Trailer

What is the Puripool Process?

The Puripool Process is an innovative method of recycling pool water through reverse osmosis filtration, UV filtration, and Ozonation. Puripool will remove Cyanuric acid, Calcium and other hard water minerals, excess TDS, Salt, Viruses, Bacteria, and Allergens. The processed water when returned to your pool is bottled water quality, safer, cleaner and healthier than your pool water has ever been.

Why should I use the PuriPool process?

  • Puripool is Eco-friendly, conserving a precious resource – WATER.
  • Puripool makes your water better than tap water.
  • Puripool is economical, the cost is similar to having your pool drained and re-filled.
  • Puripool removes harmful contaminants.
  • Puripool keeps your pool full of water guarding it against floating our exposing plaster to air.
  • Puripool usually takes less than 24 hours and you can swim while it is cleaning.

From the day your pool is first filled, it is often above the standards for pool water chemistry in Calcium Hardness (200 to 400 parts per million, or ppm) and continues to increase as you remove water by getting out of the pool, splashing or evaporation. To replenish this lost water, new water is added and additional hard water is introduced; raising the concentration levels of this hard water (predominantly Calcium and Magnesium) and creating a higher level of these minerals. This level increases, creating such hard water that your chemicals can no longer do their job, dictating the need for higher chemical levels to keep the pool safe. Additionally, scale builds on your interior finish, tile, pool plumbing, and equipment, which can lead to failure and expensive repairs!

In the past, the water was dumped down the drain and since the average pool has 20,000 gallons of water in it this is a huge waste of water. Whereas, ‘The Puripool™ Process” allows us to provide the solution to remove Calcium Hardness and Total Dissolved Solids from all swimming pools, residential or commercial without draining it. As pool water evaporates and time passes, your relaxing, inviting swimming pool becomes more work to maintain and the water becomes less sanitary.

In less than a day, our mobile filtration unit will lower or remove the Total Dissolved Solids, Calcium, excess Stabilizer (Cyanuric Acid), Phosphates, Nitrates, Viruses, etc. We will give you back a clean, healthy pool; all while conserving nearly 85% of your existing water. Your pool will be as pure as if you had filled it with bottled drinking water!

So, why not take the step today to swim in the best water quality possible? Contact us today for a quote and we promise you will not only love the way the water looks but how it feels too!

How To Lower Calcium Hardness and TDS Without Draining The Pool

 

Puripool in Dallas

The Benefits of The Puripool Process

Reverse osmosis was first observed in the mid-1700’s and has been used successfully since the 1970’s to treat water. When it comes to swimming pools, pool covers can help with evaporation, but if you live in areas where the water is hard, you will need to change out your water every couple of years. Our technology can conserve up to 85% of the water in the swimming pool, which makes it an effective solution to a typical drain and refill.  Draining pools waste an average of 20,000 gallons of water and use another 20,000 gallons of water to refill-there is a better way!

At Weber Pools, our mobile filtration trailer utilizes Reverse Osmosis to lower Calcium Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), salts, phosphates, Cyanuric Acid (CYA) and other contaminants from the swimming pool. The trailers are completely self-contained and run on their own power. Two hoses come from the trailer and one is attached to a pump that takes water from the swimming pool into the trailer. The water is pre-treated before it contacts the RO membranes and then pure water is returned to the swimming pool. Depending on the initial TDS reading, we can predict how long the process will take to lower the TDS and calcium levels to below what can be obtained from the tap. There is no downtime during the process and the surface of the swimming pool is never exposed.

Just last week we processed a 10,000-gallon above ground swimming pool and want to share the results with you.

Initial Chemistry

Calcium Hardness – 750 parts per million (ppm)

Total Dissolved Solids – 3750ppm

CYA – 80ppm

After filtering this swimming pool for 8 hours we were able to leave them with the following ending chemistry that is better than Dallas tap water.

Ending Chemistry

Calcium Hardness – 150ppm

Total Dissolved Solids – 800ppm

CYA – 0ppm

This service allows us to provide the best solution to remove Calcium Hardness and Total Dissolved Solids from all swimming pools, residential or commercial. As pool water evaporates and time passes, your relaxing, inviting swimming pool becomes more work to maintain and the water becomes less sanitary.

In less than a day (residential pools), our mobile filtration unit will lower or remove the Total Dissolved Solids, Calcium, excess Stabilizer (Cyanuric Acid), Phosphates, Nitrates, Viruses, etc. We will give you back a clean, healthy pool; all while conserving nearly 85% of your existing water. Your pool will be as pure as if you had filled it with bottled drinking water!

Got High Calcium Levels In Your Swimming Pool, You’ve Got Problems

Puripool Weber Pools

Don’t Drain Your Swimming Pool, Recycle Instead With Puripool

When it comes to owning a residential or commercial swimming pool, there are many dangers of having high levels of Calcium Hardness (CH) levels in your swimming pool! When it comes to calcium in tap water there are certain places in the country that have much more than others. Dallas and San Antonio are definitely some of them. In those places, the calcium coming out of the tap water is on the higher end of what is recommended for a swimming pool but it’s important to note that swimming pools need a certain amount of calcium to keep the interior finish intact. It is when those levels get too high that challenges occur. For swimming pools, the standard and recommended amount of Calcium Hardness (CH) in the swimming pool industry are between 200 – 400 parts per million (ppm) but in our area, the calcium levels coming out of the tap is 300ppm and higher! The challenges for residential and commercial swimming pool owners is when calcium levels get too high in their swimming pool. When these levels continue to climb scaling occurs on the water tile line, the interior finish, filtration equipment, decorative water features, spillways, and salt chlorinators (if you have one). It can also be challenging to manage the water chemistry too! If you happen to have a saltwater chlorinator, high levels of calcium hardness will prevent it from functioning properly and if any of this occurs it can not only be tough to look out but also expensive to remove. So, swimming pool owners should think about changing out the water in their swimming pools every couple of years!

So what happens when calcium levels get too high? The simple answer is it must be lowered from the swimming pool water. At this point you can choose to drain and refill your swimming pool which takes 2-3 days, it can damage your interior finish and you will be filling it back up with Dallas’s hard water or you can recycle it using The Puripool Process.  At Weber Pools, we offer Reverse Osmosis (RO) mobile filtration to lower Calcium Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Cyanuric Acid (CYA), phosphates, salts, and waterborne diseases without draining the swimming pool. This service puts drinking quality water back in your swimming pool and you can swim in the pool while it is being filtered. Not to mention, we conserve up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool which is great for water conservation.

As a residential or commercial swimming pool owner, if you want to swim in the best water quality this summer the answer is simple…. Weber Pools is committed to providing you with not only excellent water quality but also water that is more fun to swim in. If you should have any questions about how our service works, please contact us today!

Your Swimming Pool Water Quality Is Important

Swimming Pool Water Quality

Let’s face it, swimming pools are a luxury, and if you own a swimming pool there are numerous benefits that can be enjoyed. Simply put, whether you are exercising, hosting a barbecue with friends and family or lounging in the pool, it is extremely important you know how to keep it clean and sanitized. Typically, most people think that by brushing the water tile line and interior finish, skimming and keeping proper chemistry is enough but it goes far beyond that. Swimming pools should be maintained at least once a week to keep them clean but depending on weather conditions sometimes maintenance will need to occur more than that. An example of this is if you live in an area with lots of trees and other vegetation you might need to maintain it more to keep leaves and other debris out of the pool. Honestly, on windy days we aren’t afraid to let you know we skim out leaves every day. We do this to prevent issues and phosphate buildup. But, on a weekly basis, the water tile line and the interior finish of the swimming pool should be brushed to prevent buildup and dirt. Debris should also be skimmed out of the swimming pool as soon as possible as it can change the chemistry in the swimming pool and could cause excess chlorine usage or an increase in phosphates.

One major benefit to having in your swimming pool is an automatic swimming pool cleaner. This will help remove debris from the bottom of the swimming pool and drastically reduce the amount of work that you need to do. Regularly check all equipment for leaks because this can not only waste water but it can also cause poor filtration which can lead to inadequate movement of water and the possibility of algae growth.

On top of all this, keeping adequate amounts of chlorine in the swimming pool, monitoring your pH, Total Alkalinity and keeping your CYA levels within a normal range is also essential for keeping your swimming pool clean and the water clear and free of contaminants. Depending on where you live, you are also going to need to consider Calcium Hardness (CH) and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) as well.

On the other hand, due to bather load, if you own a commercial swimming pool or like to swim in them, proper maintenance is extremely important along with adequate filtration. Water quality especially when it comes to commercial swimming pools has been in the news a lot. Weber Pools works with a variety of commercial swimming pool to keep them clean and ready to swim in. We also offer The Puripool Process which uses Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration to lower Calcium Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids, Cyanuric Acid, and waterborne diseases.

This service is available for both residential and commercial swimming pool owners. If you have any other questions about the importance of swimming pool water quality or The Puripool Process, please contact us today!

 

Salt Water vs. Chlorine For Sanitation in Swimming Pools!

 

When it comes to keeping your residential or commercial swimming pool sanitized to keep algae and bacteria out the two most popular methods are either using salt or chlorine. If you own a residential or commercial swimming pool there has been many discussions about Salt Water vs. Chlorine Swimming Pools. Depending on where you live there can be many benefits to owning a saltwater swimming pool but as a company that discusses and has written about the challenges of saltwater and high levels of Calcium Hardness, this should go into your discussion before you purchase one.

If you want a blue and clear swimming pool, they must not only be sanitized but also balanced chemically. To swim in bacteria-free water, you must swim in either a saltwater pool or chlorine pool. The question is, which one is better for you? There are many pros and cons of each and we hope this blog post helps to inform you on making a wise decision.

Pros to owning a chlorine pool

  • Doesn’t damage pool features
  • No installation necessary
  • Uses no electricity
  • Minimal initial investment

Cons of owning a chlorine pool

  • Can cause skin dryness, itchiness and the possibility of red eyes
  • Can fade your swimwear overtime
  • Can increase health risks
  • Higher chemical cost

Pros of owning a saltwater pool

  • Minimal chlorine consumption
  • Softer on skin, nails, and hair
  • Doesn’t fade your swimwear
  • Lower chemical costs
  • Poses no health risks

Cons of owning a saltwater pool

  • Higher initial installation costs
  • Uses more electricity
  • Harder to operate in areas where Calcium Hardness levels are high

In the Dallas area, we see a lot of saltwater swimming pools because our water is hard and many bathers enjoy the soft water swim experience. They are extremely popular because most brands sell consumers on the fact that they are maintenance free. But, they aren’t maintenance free in Dallas because the electrode plates will scale with our hard water and prevent them from generating chlorine.

With that being said, if you own one you’re going to need to keep your Calcium Hardness levels low. That’s why we recommend changing out the water in your swimming pool every two years with The Puripool Process. If you should have any questions about saltwater vs. chlorine please let us know. We recommend both types of sanitation and if you keep your hardness levels lower and pH within normal ranges it will definitely allow the salt system to work much better.

Removing Calcium From Your Swimming Pool

If you own a residential or commercial swimming pool in Dallas, high levels of calcium in your swimming pool are going to be one of the most challenging situations you might have to deal with. It’s challenging because most swimming pool owners aren’t aware of it, don’t know much about it and most importantly have no clue what to do when the levels get higher than what is recommended (200-400 parts per million). We hope this blog post gives you some insight on what to do if you own a swimming pool and live in the Dallas Ft. Worth area where the fill water is loaded with calcium, magnesium and other hardness minerals. Specifically in Dallas, the amount of calcium in our tap water measures around 300 parts per million (ppm). Due to the fact that it comes out that hard, it can cause numerous problems to faucets, shower heads, countertops, sinks and so much more. These are issues that most homeowners are aware of because they see it and deal with it all the time, but what about your swimming pool? Have you ever thought about what these high levels of calcium in your water do to your swimming pool?

As water evaporates, the calcium and other hardness minerals remain in solution and gradually increase in concentration. As these levels get higher and higher, you will start to notice calcium scaling on the water tile line, the interior finish of the swimming pool, your filtration equipment, decorative water features, salt chlorinator (if you have one) and so much more. If you spent a lot of money on decorative tile and water features, they will soon be loaded with thick white calcium that is extremely difficult and expensive to remove!

Another issue that high calcium levels cause challenges with maintaining the chemistry in your swimming pool. That’s why most pool professionals will tell you that changing out the water in your swimming pool every two years to prevent this problem is a smart idea. At Weber Pools, we offer The Puripool Process. This service uses Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration to lower Calcium Hardness (CH), Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Cyanuric Acid (CYA), and so much more without draining the swimming pool. It conserves 85% of the water that’s in the pool which is great for water conservation, it never exposes the interior which prevents cracking and our promise is to give you better water than you’d get out of the tap. So, if calcium, TDS, or CYA is high in your swimming pool, call us today to get drinking quality water back in your pool and conserve nature’s most precious resource, WATER!!
