Reverse Osmosis Mobile Filtration For Commercial Swimming Pools!

A commercial swimming pool that is being used while the filtration process is being performed!

Last year, we recycled numerous different commercial swimming pools with our Reverse Osmosis (RO) mobile filtration trailer for a variety of reasons. We’ve noticed an increase in these types of requests because, in Texas, commercial swimming pools are highly regulated due to the number of bathers. Not to mention, the cities have a lot more strict regulations when it comes to water chemistry in their swimming pools. Typically the following are reasons why a commercial swimming pool would be out of compliance:

  • High Cyanuric Acid (CYA) levels
  • High Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) levels
  • High Calcium Hardness levels
  • Presence of waterborne diseases

If any of the above issues are present, commercial swimming pools could be shut down until they are handled. Unfortunately, if it is in the middle of swim season it could mean downtime for the swimming pool, which is never great for the establishment or for those that want to swim in the pool!

Just because the water is blue and clear and is reading adequate levels of chlorine doesn’t necessarily mean it’s safe to swim in. So, how do commercial swimming pools deal with increases in calcium hardness, TDS, and CYA? What happens when there is a waterborne disease present? Our fill water in Texas is loaded with calcium and other hardness minerals. As water in the swimming pool evaporates, these hardness levels will increase in the swimming pool fairly rapidly because they don’t dissolve and they do remain in solution. For commercial swimming pools, the most common delivery of chlorine is by liquid injection. This liquid is loaded with salt, which causes the TDS levels to rise as well in the swimming pool. At this point, the commercial property will need to change out the water in their swimming pool. When this time comes around (could be once per year) Weber Pools can come with our RO mobile filtration trailer to recycle the existing water in the swimming pool. This is extremely beneficial to your commercial property because of the following factors:

  • No downtime – swimmers can swim in the pool while it is being purified.
  • The interior finish is never exposed
  • The water after purification is much better than tap. It’s actually drinking quality water!
  • Water Conservation – we can conserve up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool.
  • Lowers the chances of calcium buildup on the swimming pool if the process is performed regularly.
  • Removes waterborne diseases
  • Water quality is the best
  • Keeps your water within city and state regulations

My Calcium Hardness Is High In My Swimming Pool, Now What?

If you own a swimming pool and live in an area with calcium in your tap water this blog post is going to be extremely informative for you. In the Southwest United States and into the areas of Texas, Oklahoma and beyond we deal with high calcium hardness coming out of our tap water. People will refer to their water as being “hard” when the calcium content is high, when magnesium and other hardness minerals are high and when total dissolved solids (TDS) levels are high. These levels will vary in quantities (referred to as parts per million) depending on who you talk to but it doesn’t take long for these numbers to increase. Every time water is introduced to the swimming pool these levels will increase and how they affect your swimming pool will be discussed.

As water evaporates in your swimming pool (up to an inch a day during the summer) the hardness minerals remain in solution and gradually increase over time. As these levels increase, the calcium and other hardness minerals will scale on the tile, the liner, the spillways, the water features and filtration equipment of the swimming pool. It is truly an eye sore to look at not to mention the damage it does to your swimming pool. Please also keep in the mind that high levels of calcium hardness in your swimming pool can make it more challenging to handle in regards to proper chlorine levels etc. At this point, if you take a water sample into a store or test it yourself at home most people will recommend a drain and refill. Here are some of the pros and cons of a typical drain and refill:

Pros –

  • Relatively inexpensive
  • The water will be better than what you have now

Cons –

  • The water is still moderately hard from the tap
  • Exposure of the liner
  • 2-3 day process
  • Lost swim time

Whereas, if you consider recycling your swimming pool water instead we guarantee a much better end product. At Weber Pools, we offer a mobile filtration system that comes to you. The mobile trailer is equipped with Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration that returns drinking quality water into the swimming pool. The process is completely self-contained which means we run on our own power and we guarantee you better water than tap. The following are some of the pros and cons of the mobile filtration service:

Pros –

  • Water conservation – we conserve up to 85% of the existing water
  • No downtime – you can swim in the pool while the process is being performed
  • Drinking quality water in your swimming pool
  • The liner is never exposed
  • Soft water
  • Removal of waterborne diseases

Cons –

  • It is slightly more expensive than a drain a refill

Ultimately, this is a service that we provide in the Dallas area along with San Antonio and into Oklahoma. Our water is hard and you will deal with this problem every couple of years. We would like to have the opportunity to help you out by providing you with a better product than a drain and refill and help you to conserve water along the way.

How To Save Water With Your Swimming Pool!

drybed

Drought conditions in Texas and Oklahoma have been in and out of the news over the last couple of years but there have been several occasions where drought news has been pretty prominent in Texas and Oklahoma recently. In Tulsa World, “Drought conditions intensified across the eastern one-third of Oklahoma last month and climatologists say that portion of the state could experience similar conditions in October. State climatologist Gary McManus said in a report released Sunday that moderate to severe drought increased from 14 percent to 19 percent in September.” With drought conditions returning to many areas of Oklahoma, Weber Pools wants to be your solution to being able to save a lot of water and make an huge impact on the drought situation. If you’re a homeowner with a swimming pool, you have the ability of making the largest water conservation act by not draining your swimming pool. With us, you have the ability of saving on average 20,000 gallons of water in less than a day and we want to share with you how that’s done.

Every couple of years, swimming pool water needs to be changed out because of high calcium hardness, total dissolved solids (TDS), and cyanuric acid levels. As water evaporates, calcium and other hardness minerals remain in solution and gradually build up over time. As these levels increase, you will notice calcium staining on your water tile line, the liner of your swimming pool, water features, spillways and your pool filtration equipment. When this happens, most swimming pool professionals will recommend a drain and refill. As much as this is necessary, we have a better solution. At Weber Pools, we offer mobile filtration that comes to your home or commercial property and recycles your swimming pool water using Reverse Osmosis (RO) membranes instead. This process lowers the following major concerns:

  • Calcium hardness
  • Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)
  • Cyanuric acid
  • Phosphates
  • Salts
  • Waterborne diseases
  • So much more

We take water from your swimming pool into our trailer where six sets of RO membranes lower the hardness and drinking quality water returns to the swimming pool. Our process is completely self-contained, we can conserve up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool, you can swim in the pool while the process is being performed, we give you a much better end product than tap water, we never expose the liner of the swimming pool and we are typically done in less than a day.

So this upcoming off season, we ask you to think twice before you drain your swimming pool. Save the water, help the environment and swim in a pool with much better quality of water. Interested in learning how, call us today!

 

Water Quality In Swimming Pools

check+the+pool+water+quality

Are you concerned about what you’re swimming in when you go to friend’s houses or swim in commercial pools, water parks or community pools? Well, we think you should be and we hope this blog post gives you some insight on the reasons why you should be and what you can do about it. Unfortunately, just because a swimming pool is clear and blue doesn’t mean that it’s always safe to swim in. There are a variety of waterborne diseases that can be present in swimming pool water and we want to make sure you’re safe as well as give you valuable information to think about before you swim in commercial pools. First and foremost, for kids it’s easy to swallow water and as a parent this needs to be your biggest concern. Educating your kids about this is extremely important because in large bodies of water, the following are the most common waterborne diseases:

  • Campylobacteriosis is a bacterium with symptoms of diarrhea, abdominal pain and fever.
  • Cholera is a bacterium with symptoms of muscle cramps, vomiting and diarrhea.
  • Cryptosporidium is a bacterium with symptoms of diarrhea, stomach cramps, upset stomach and slight fever.
  • Shigellosis is a bacterium with symptoms of bloody stool, diarrhea and fever.
  • Typhoid fever is a bacterium with symptoms of fever, headache, constipation, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite and an abdominal rash.

These waterborne diseases most commonly get into the water because of urination or defecation. As parents, when swimming in commercial pools this should be of a concern because even with high amounts of chlorine these waterborne diseases will not be killed. So, any type of oral contact could cause one of the above so we ask you to keep those symptoms in mind and if your children exhibit any of them, you will want to contact your doctor, urgent care or head to the emergency room.

Due to the fact that waterborne diseases and water quality issues have been on the news not only in Texas but other parts of the country, commercial swimming pools are highly regulated. To make sure your swimming pool water is of the highest quality and free of any waterborne diseases, Weber Pools exclusively offers The Puripool Process, which lowers the following:

  • Calcium hardness
  • Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)
  • Cyanuric Acid (CYA)
  • Salts
  • Phosphates
  • Algaecides
  • Removes waterborne diseases

It’s a mobile filtration system that is equipped with Reverse Osmosis (RO) membranes to provide you with drinking quality water. Since the filtration system is mobile, it comes to you. You will never have to worry about exposing the liner of the swimming pool nor will you have to deal with any downtime because you can swim in the pool while the process is being performed. So, if you like to swim in commercial pools, make you sure you educate your kids and ask them to call us today to make sure you’re swimming in the highest quality of water possible!

 

Water Conservation In Texas

637393815-puripool-hero-tcm126-2121445

In the last couple of months, Texas has been in the news for not only water quality but potential drought conditions again! As most people already know, Texas isn’t new to drought conditions and if it wasn’t for a large amount of rain last year this would still be an issue. According to recent reports, it appears that parts of Texas are headed back in that direction and it wouldn’t surprise us to see this trend continue. “It may not sound like much but in this week’s drought monitor, moderate drought conditions have returned to close to 2 percent of Texas. The percent of the state listed as abnormally dry has more than doubled to 13 percent. The dry conditions are forcing many to flock to stores like Home Depot to try to conserve water. Aside from yesterday’s one-one-hundredth of an inch of rain, San Antonio hasn’t seen a significant amount of measurable rainfall since early June. That lack of rain is starting to take its toll on the area water supply, possibly bringing back drought conditions.”

About 2.5 years ago, Weber Pools contacted Pure Water Industries because we knew they had something we believed in and knew could make a major impact to help our drought conditions. Did you know that one of the largest water conservation acts that a homeowner can do is not drain their swimming pool? Yes, that is correct using our water conservation technology, a homeowner or commercial swimming pool owner can save on average 20,000 gallons of water in a 24-hour period by not draining their swimming pool. Weber Pools uses the Puripool Process and gives swimming pool owners the opportunity to recycle their swimming pool water instead.

There are a variety of reasons as to why swimming pool water should be changed every couple of years. Here are a list of a few that would require a water change:

  • High calcium hardness
  • High total dissolved solids (TDS)
  • Waterborne diseases
  • High cyanuric acid levels (CYA)

One of the biggest issues that swimming pool owners will face are rising calcium levels in their swimming pools. Calcium comes from our fill water and as water evaporates in the swimming pool, calcium remains in solution. As these levels rise, calcium will stain the water tile line, the liner of the swimming pool and begin to scale filtration equipment. It will also make taking care of your swimming pool more challenging. That’s why we offer the Puripool Process because it lowers calcium hardness, TDS, waterborne diseases, CYA and much more while conserving 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool. It uses Reverse Osmosis (RO) membranes to filter out contaminates while providing our customers with water that is much better than tap. So we ask all of Texas to start thinking ahead and make an impact to help prevent the drought from continuing. Call us today to learn more about how we can help you!

Weber Pools is located in the Dallas area but will recycle swimming pool water in parts of Oklahoma, San Antonio and Austin as well!

Swimming Pool Water Quality in Dallas

Swimming in the summer time is one of the most enjoyable activities for pretty much everyone. Who doesn’t look forward to cooling off in the swimming pool, barbecues with friends or swimming laps? Swimming pools can be an absolute blast when the water is clear and the chemistry is perfect but what happens when algae starts to grow or diseases form in the water that are invisible to the naked eye? Unfortunately, there are a variety of diseases that are waterborne and can easily affect someone who swallows even the smallest amounts of water. Most people are concerned with public pools but unless it’s only you that swims in your pool there’s no guarantee that someone doesn’t pee in the pool. So whether or not you’re a pool owner or someone who loves to swim in public swimming pools, it’s up to you to make sure you take all the precautions necessary in making sure the water you swim in is “healthy”.

Types of Waterborne Diseases

  • Campylobacteriosis is a bacterium with symptoms of diarrhea, abdominal pain and fever.
  • Cholera is a bacterium with symptoms of muscle cramps, vomiting and diarrhea.
  • Cryptosporidium is a bacterium with symptoms of diarrhea, stomach cramps, upset stomach and slight fever.
  • Shigellosis is a bacterium with symptoms of bloody stool, diarrhea and fever.
  • Typhoid fever is a bacterium with symptoms of fever, headache, constipation, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite and an abdominal rash.

Out of all of the above the most common waterborne disease in swimming pools is Cryptosporidium. All it takes is one person with diarrhea to affect an entire pool even with adequate chlorine levels. If you’re swimming, it’s extremely important to not swallow the water, pee in the pool or touch anything that can affect you with the waterborne disease. If you’re sick or have a weak immune system it can make the chances of you catching it that much greater which means it’s better if you don’t swim.

In the Dallas area, you have a couple of options if your swimming pool is affected with any waterborne bacteria. You can drain the swimming pool or recycle the water instead. If you choose to drain the swimming pool and it’s handled incorrectly, it could have an adverse affect on the water quality in other waterways. Typically, if you drain the swimming pool into the storm drain system the water and all the chemicals in it not to mention the bacteria will affect the nearest creek, river, or lake. With that being said it can be very dangerous for everyone else.

As an alternative Weber Pools recommends using our “Puripool Process” which actually recycles the swimming pool water and will also destroy the bacteria as well. This is the safest action not only for the city but provides you with the cleanest possible water for your swimming pool free of any contaminants. It uses a process called Reverse Osmosis (RO), which is extremely common in the home to provide drinking water. The process is mobile, will lower calcium hardness, total dissolved solids, cyanuric acid, remove bacteria and so much more while conserving 85% of the water in the pool. It’s the safest way to not only change the water in the swimming pool but also provide you with the best swimming experience as well.

If you have any questions on how the “Puripool Process” can benefit you and your swimming pool, please don’t hesitate to contact us today at 1-817-481-7665.
