The Puripool Process in Dallas Texas

We’re so glad you asked, as we have an incredible solution for you that is a great alternative to draining swimming pools.

If you own a residential or commercial swimming pool in the Dallas area, at some point you’re going to hear that you’re going to need to drain it. The most common reasons as to why one would need to drain a swimming pool would be for high levels of Calcium Hardness, high Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), and high Cyanuric Acid (CYA) levels. Not to mention, you might be high in salts for your salt system or because of the presence of waterborne disease. Water quality when it comes to homeowners swimming pools or commercial swimming pools is a huge issue and should be a major concern to everyone involved. One of the main reasons why calcium and TDS levels increase in a swimming pool is as water evaporates calcium, magnesium, and other hardness minerals stay behind and gradually increase in concentration. When this happens it can cause all sorts of issues with your swimming pool from increased chlorine levels to calcium scaling on the water tile line, the interior finish of the swimming pool and even your filtration equipment. This can and will be a nightmare for anyone who is taking care of the swimming pool or for repair work in the future.

The bottom line is an increase in money spent and a decrease in the amount of time swimming in the pool. At Weber Pools, we utilize a way to lower Calcium Hardness, lower Total Dissolved Solids, lower Cyanuric Acid as well as deal with waterborne diseases like cryptosporidium without draining the swimming pool. Not only does this save time and money but it also prevents the waste of an average 20,000-gallons of water by draining the pool. We’ve adopted the “Puripool Process” which uses Reverse Osmosis (RO) membranes to lower Calcium Hardness, TDS, and CYA without draining the swimming pool. The RO machine is mobile and can be taken to any location needed to purify pool water. The end result is drinking quality water in your swimming pool, lower chemical usage, and an overall better swim experience.

For the last five years, Weber Pools has successfully performed The Puripool Process on both residential and commercial swimming pool water. When it comes to the results, you can’t compare Puripool to a drain and refill because we conserve up to 85% of the existing water and provide water that is much softer than tap!

If you have any questions or are interested in learning how the “Puripool Process” can help your swimming pool, please give us a call.

Water Quality and Swimming Pools

Swimming Pool Water Quality

Cryptosporidium and Swimming Pools

Do you frequent commercial swimming pools or pools with numerous bathers? If you aren’t concerned about the water you’ve been swimming in, you should be. Swimming in excellent quality water is always critical but just because the water is blue and clear to the naked eye doesn’t mean it’s always safe to swim in. Weber Pools is a premier Dallas pool service administered by a staff with decades of experience in the industry. We are a Certified Pool Operator that serves the greater Dallas / Fort Worth area. We are literally a one-stop-shop for all your pool needs — whether that consists of pool cleaning, repair or general pool maintenance. We specialize in both residential and commercial swimming pools. As for commercial pools, 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.

When it comes to quality, we take it very seriously. We pride ourselves on working with numerous commercial properties and we understand due to the number of bathers the risks are higher! Everyone who hires a service company always wants quality but this also pertains to the water as well. We are committed to our service and to make sure your steps, benches, and interior finish of your swimming pool are brushed and free of debris. Emptying the skimmer basket and pump basket along with skimming the surface of the pool to make it look clean always happens. If needed, vacuuming is also regularly performed. Next comes balancing your water chemistry and that means making sure there are adequate amounts of chlorine and balancing your pH and Total Alkalinity (TA) too. But even when all of these are done, it doesn’t mean that the water is safe to swim in. This is where things can get confusing because even when the pool looks great and the chemistry is correct, there still can be issues and they might not be detectable with standard water tests.

In commercial pool water have you ever noticed the number of time kids and even adults spend in the water without getting out? If this doesn’t make you think about the water you’re swimming in please note, the possibility of people urinating and defecating in the swimming pool is a strong possibility. With that said, here are some precautions you should always take when you are ready to swim:

  • Rinse off before and after you swim
  • Never drink the water
  • If you see someone urinating or defecating in the pool, let someone know and exit the pool immediately
  • If you feel sick after swimming (intestinal) call your doctor and get tested for waterborne diseases

Another way you can make sure you are swimming in the best quality of water is by having Weber Pools recycle your swimming pool water with our mobile filtration system (The Puirpool Process). We offer Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration for swimming pools. This process lowers Calcium Hardness (CH), Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Cyanuric Acid (CYA) and removes waterborne diseases without draining the swimming pool. The Puripool Process provides your swimming pool with drinking quality water for swimming in. If you’re interested in knowing more or having us test your water, contact us today!

The Best Way To Recycle Swimming Pool Water

The Puripool Process

Changing Out Your Pool Water

Is your residential or commercial swimming pool water old or hard? Has any pool professional ever told you that your Calcium Hardness, TDS, or CYA levels are high and that it’s time to drain your swimming pool? If so, we hope this blog post answers the biggest question of why drain when you can recycle? If you have a swimming pool this is a service you will definitely want to know more about. It will save you time, money and swimming in pools with recycled swimming pool water are a lot more fun.

As a swimming pool owner, due to evaporation which is extremely high in Dallas during the summer, you will need to add water to your swimming pool fairly often. During the long hot summer months, the amount of water you will be adding will increase due to increased evaporation. Our water in the Dallas area is loaded with calcium, magnesium, and other hardness minerals. When you regularly introduce this water into your swimming pool, the hardness content in the water will increase. It increases because as water evaporates, the hardness minerals remain in solution and gradually increase in concentration. Unfortunately, as these minerals build up they will start scaling your tile, the interior finish, filtration equipment, spillways, and decorative water features. If you own a salt chlorinator it will also cause problems with those too. Soon, your backyard paradise will be covered with calcium scale that can be extremely hard to remove. With that being said, to help combat this problem, we recommend changing out the water in your swimming pool every two years at a minimum. This will help prevent excess calcium scale, struggles with maintaining proper chemistry in your swimming pool and most importantly your swim experience will be much better because of the feel of the water. In summary, we recommend recycling your swimming pool water regularly with the Puripool Process.

At Weber Pools, we offer a Reverse Osmosis (RO) mobile filtration trailer that can lower/remove calcium, magnesium, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Cyanuric Acid (CYA), phosphates, nitrates, salts and waterborne diseases without draining the swimming pool. There are two hoses that come out of the trailer which continually feeds the swimming pool water into the trailer while the RO membranes lower the hardness. This process will return drinking quality water back to the swimming pool, the liner will never be exposed and you can swim in the pool while the process is being performed. This process will conserve up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool and will give you the best water quality to swim in. The benefits of using this process will help extend the lifespan of your investment, will allow you to conserve much-needed water and give you a much better end product than a drain and refill. Not to mention, we can filter most residential swimming pools in less than a day.

How To Remove Calcium From Your Swimming Pool

Puripool in Texas

Lowering Calcium Hardness, TDS, and CYA from your swimming pool

With summer here and swimming pools at the forefront of everyone’s minds, have you checked your Calcium Hardness levels lately? Calcium, magnesium, and other hardness minerals are in our fill water in Texas and it can cause challenges if it isn’t managed. When it comes to water chemistry you need a certain amount of calcium, but unfortunately, in our area, we have too much! If you are concerned about your investment then this blog post is definitely for you because as calcium levels rise in your swimming pool so do the number of issues and challenges. Most pool professionals in the industry will say that the optimal amount of calcium in a swimming pool is between 200 and 400 parts per million (ppm). In some parts of the country, this is possible but with calcium coming out of our tap at a minimum of 300 ppm it’s literally impossible here. That’s why we recommend changing out the water in your swimming pool every 1 – 2 years.

As water evaporates, calcium and other hardness minerals will remain in solution and gradually rise in concentration. Over time, this will become an issue for the following reasons:

  • Scaling of your decorative tile
  • Scaling of your interior finish
  • Scaling on your filtration equipment causing problems with operation.
  • Calcium scaling on your water features and spillways.
  • Potential increase in chemical demand

When any of the above happens it can be an expensive proposition to remove it, not to mention, being an eyesore to look at. At Weber Pools, we are committed to providing you with a variety of services to make your residential and commercial swimming pool experience is more enjoyable, that’s why we offer you The Puripool Process. This is an alternative to draining a swimming pool and we want to educate you on why it will be your best decision. As calcium levels rise in a swimming pool you can either drain and refill your swimming pool or choose to recycle the water instead. If you choose a drain and refill, please note that this process can take 2-3 days, you will be filling your swimming pool up with moderately hard water again and causing structural damage to your liner is always a possibility. Whereas, if you choose to have us recycle your swimming pool water instead, we can lower all of the following without draining the pool:

  • Calcium Hardness (CH)
  • Cyanuric Acid (CYA)
  • Nitrates
  • Borates
  • Salt
  • Iron
  • Copper
  • Magnesium
  • Algaecides
  • Phosphates
  • Bacteria and Viruses
  • Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)

 

The benefits of using the Puripool Process are numerous. Since the water level never changes in the swimming pool, the potential for structural damage is non-existent, we can conserve up to 85% of the water in the pool, we guarantee calcium levels lower than tap water and since you can swim in the pool while the pool is being filtered, there’s no downtime! We can achieve this by bringing our mobile filtration trailer to your home or commercial property. The trailer is equipped with Reverse Osmosis (RO) membranes that have the ability to give you the best quality of water to swim in. It also helps with itchy eyes, dry skin and overall it is a much more fun swim experience because the water is softer.

Water Quality Issues With Commercial Swimming Pools

Commercial Swimming Pool Water Quality

Commercial Swimming Pool Water Quality

With summer here, school is out and we want to know if you frequent commercial swimming pools? If you do, have you ever questioned the water you are swimming in? Have you ever thought about how clean the water is or if the water chemistry is balanced? Remember, just because the water is blue and clear doesn’t mean it’s safe to swim in. Depending on how busy the pool you are swimming in will always determine the water quality. Chances are, the more bathers, the worse the water is.

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.

When it comes to commercial swimming pools, we know we have the experience and this has allowed us to not only take care of commercial swimming pools but also help them with their water quality. In the end, if you’ve ever swum in a big pool and noticed that many people stay in the pool for a very long time chances are they are using it as a bathroom as well. With this, sweat, body oils, and lotions the water will become 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!

The Puripool Refresh Treatment

This is another service that Weber Pools offers. With this service, we will come out to your commercial property and recycle the water for 12 hours. It’s like a “tune-up” for your swimming pool and will help with water quality issues. This is a service that many properties utilize and we would love to share more with you.

Reverse Osmosis For Commercial Swimming Pools

Reverse Osmosis for Commercial Swimming Pools

Using Reverse Osmosis to Purify Commercial Swimming Pools

Over the last couple of years, we’ve 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 the 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 scaling 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

Reverse Osmosis (RO) Filtration For Swimming Pools

Puripool Mobile TrailerReverse Osmosis Filtration For Swimming Pools

Reverse osmosis (RO) is high-quality filtration that uses a semi-permeable, thin membrane with pores small enough to pass pure water through while rejecting larger molecules such as dissolved salts (ions) and other impurities such as bacteria. RO is used to produce highly purified water for drinking water systems, industrial boilers, swimming pools, cosmetics, pharmaceutical production, seawater desalination, beer, disaster relief, and so much more. It has been a recognized technology for more than a century and commercialized since the early 1960s.

At Weber Pools, we utilize both mobile and inline RO filtration for use in the swimming pool industry. With high Calcium Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Cyanuric Acid (CYA) and waterborne diseases pools have to change out their water from time to time. In areas where water is hard, mobile filtration can come to your residential or commercial swimming pool and recycle the swimming pool water onsite. Whereas, inline provides a more permanent solution to help keep commercial pools in compliance and excellent water quality for their bathers. Since the Dallas Ft. Worth area highly regulates commercial swimming pools this is a great option. This process conserves up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool and puts drinking quality water back in your pool which is much better than tap water.

“The Puripool™ Process” was invented in 2009 by Pure Water Industries with the sole belief that draining a swimming pool must be a thing of the past. Water conservation, less chemical demand and a swimming pool that is cleaner, safer and healthier for you and your family; ­all the benefits of maintaining your investment with Pure Water Industries. The current drought conditions and emphasis on water conservation have served to solidify the need for systems that conserve large quantities of water, and “The Puripool™ Process” has been leading the way since 2009.” We purchased two of their trailers to offer this service in the Dallas Ft. Worth area to both residential and commercial swimming pool owners.

Why hassle with pumping the water from your pool, paying for the refill and then trying to figure out the complicated chemicals needed to re­-balance your pool water, when Weber Pools can take care of it all for you? In less than a day, we can filter your residential pool and lower Calcium Hardness (CH), Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Cyanuric Acid (CYA), phosphates, salt, bacteria, viruses, etc. and provide you with a clean, fresh pool!

So our question to you is, wouldn’t you love to swim in drinking quality water this upcoming season? If your answer is yes, using Reverse Osmosis for your swimming pool is definitely the best way to go. Trust us, your pool is going to love it and you are going to swim in the most amazing water ever!

Benefits of Inline RO Systems

  • With an inline RO system plumbed directly to the swimming pool filtration system you are able to control the minimum and maximum TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) in the swimming pool. This is vital to most commercial swimming pools because they are regulated by the state.
  • The ability to control water quality will prolong the life of plaster and negates the need for a drain and refill to address unsafe water quality.
  • Chemical levels can be much lower and still provide a safe and sanitary pool.
  • Waterborne disease and the possibility of sick swimmers are a very real concern and can (and do) provide the ability for extremely bad press, as well as consumer scare. With RO you can have excellent water quality all the time.
  • Less damage to pool equipment and decreased visual impact of calcium scaling to the pool waterline tile and decking areas.
  • General sanitization is greatly improved.
  • No downtime because there is no need to drain and refill a swimming pool

We are able to supply any size RO system for your residential or commercial property. If you are curious about these systems or how they can benefit you, your residents and your guests, contact us today to learn more.

Phosphates In Pool Water Can Be Challenging!

Phosphates Pool Water Dallas

What Are The Challenges With Phosphates In Your Pool?

Phosphates are a challenge and can be a nightmare in your swimming pool especially if you don’t what they are and how to deal with them. You can’t physically see them, but as their levels increase in the swimming pool the water could turn green! This is where the problem is because even though you have adequate to high amounts of chlorine in the swimming pool algae can and will grow. Phosphates (also denoted as PO4) are known nutrients to help increase plant growth rates such as in algae. However, there are several debates (and confusion) regarding phosphates in pool water. Simply put, phosphates are food for algae and when levels increase maintaining a blue and clear pool is tough. Now that we are well into summer and have had many storms with wind…. chances are phosphate levels have increased in your swimming pool.

Do you have a lot of trees in your backyard or struggle with lots of debris in your pool? If so, this is probably your best sign that phosphates might be an issue!

One of the biggest challenges with phosphates is in specific environments they are constantly being introduced into your swimming pool water. They can be found in vegetation, fill/tap water, lawn and garden fertilizers and potentially in other pool chemicals as well that you use. With that said, phosphates can enter into your swimming pool in the following ways:

  • When water is added to the pool by either you or the automatic leveler
  • A constant wind that blows dirt and other vegetation into the pool, which does happen in the Dallas area!
  • Sprinkler fun off from your lawn or landscaping/dirt gets into your pool.
  • Certain chemicals that contain phosphorous to help clean your pool

How Do You Remove Phosphates From The Pool?

First off, is your chlorine levels high? Is your pool turning green or are you developing algae blooms? This is your number one sign that phosphates might be present. Next, have you tested your levels? You can either do this at home with a phosphate test kit or take a water sample into a pool store. If your levels are high, you will need to remove them and this can be done a couple of different ways. Please keep in mind, you can also be pro-active in removing dirt, debris, and vegetation from the pool as soon as possible instead of allowing it to sit on the surface or bottom of the pool. That will definitely help in the future but to remove them you can purchase a phosphate remover. This can be extremely effective if used following the directions based on the size of your pool. Many people think more is better but this is definitely not the case with phosphate removers.

Finally, phosphates can also be removed using our Reverse Osmosis (RO) Mobile Filtration Trailer (Puripool). This type of filtration will lower Calcium Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), CYA, phosphates, waterborne diseases, salts, and so much more from your swimming pool without draining the swimming pool. It will conserve up to 85% of the water in your swimming pool which means this service can be performed 365 days a year. This service will not only remove the phosphates but give you the best water quality to swim in. In conclusion, we recommend testing regularly for phosphates especially if you’re in an area with heavy vegetation and being mindful to lower the levels as soon as possible to prevent algae growth. If you have any other questions about phosphates or how we can help you, contact us today!

Water Quality In Commercial Swimming Pools Is Important

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!

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:

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!
