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

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!

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!

Importance of Balanced Pool Water Chemistry

Pool service Dallas

Swimming Pool Water Chemistry Is Important

If you own a swimming pool in the Dallas area, there are numerous benefits that can be enjoyed but it all starts with proper/balanced swimming pool water chemistry. Simply put, whether you are leisurely swimming in the pool, hosting a barbecue, or exercising, having one is a luxury in our warm climate. Between our extremely high temperatures, humidity, and wind, they can be a lot more challenging to maintain and if you don’t know what you’re doing it can be a disaster for you! A majority of swimming pool owners think brushing the interior finish and tile, skimming all the debris out, vacuuming from time to time and balancing water chemistry is enough but it takes more than that. Swimming pools should be maintained at least once a week (if not more during summer and after storms) to keep them looking great and ready to swim in. If you have a swimming pool in an area with lots of trees, skimming out the debris daily would be recommended! In short, on a weekly basis, the water tile line and interior finish of the swimming pool should be brushed to prevent calcium buildup and dirt which can cause staining. Debris should also be skimmed out of the swimming pool immediately as it can change the water chemistry and could cause excess use of chlorine or an increase in your phosphate levels.

Maintaining Proper Water Chemistry

If you want to prevent algae growth and keep your pool looking great, maintaining proper swimming pool water chemistry levels is vital. During the summertime in Dallas, algae will develop rapidly in your pool if your chlorine levels are too low or if you aren’t filtering the water long enough. That’s why checking water chemistry once a week is vital. The following is a breakdown of appropriate water chemistry:

Chlorine: 3-5ppm (summer) and 1-3ppm (winter)

pH: 7.4 – 7.8

Total Alkalinity: 80 – 120ppm

Cyanuric Acid: 30 -50ppm (check the manual if you have a salt pool)

Calcium Hardness: 200 – 400ppm (which is hard to achieve in Dallas)

Balancing your water isn’t complicated. Your water is constantly changing, year round especially with the increase in swimming. The weather, body oils, suntan oils, dirt, cosmetics, and urine affect your water chemistry. Continuous filtration and disinfecting will remove contaminants which keep the water enjoyable, but please note, it does not balance your water chemistry. A pool is considered balanced when it has proper levels of chlorine, pH, Total Alkalinity, Cyanuric Acid (CYA), and Calcium Hardness. That is why monitoring the swimming pool regularly is extremely important.

During storms which frequent the Dallas area, you will need to monitor your pool more. Skimming out debris and removing them from the skimmer as well will allow for proper filtration and prevent major changes in water chemistry. Some pool professionals will recommend turning on your filter before a storm approaches to keep the debris moving into the skimmer. But, please note you will want to make sure the skimmer is free of debris which means it should be emptied after a storm. Maintaining a pool with a lot of swimmers and our extreme heat can be challenging. That’s why Weber Pools services not only residential pools but commercial pools as well. If you should have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us today!

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.

Making Swimming Pools Safe!

At Weber Pools, we are extremely concerned about swimming pool safety and that’s why we want to share a variety of tips on how to make your swimming pool safer. First and foremost, swimming pools can be extremely dangerous for both children and adults and that is why we stress safety to not only our clients but residents of the Dallas Ft. Worth area too! There are many elements of danger that are associated with owning a residential and commercial swimming pool and we want to make sure we stress the tips for making them safer! To be honest, there are few things that are scarier as exposing individuals to unsecured swimming pools. The chance of injury or even death to children and adults increases when they have to live in such an environment. That is why it’s extremely important that you take these tips seriously and consider making any changes necessary to make your swimming pool safer for everyone involved.

  1. Provide constant supervision – This should go without saying… nothing is better than your eyes! Even though children have learned how to swim doesn’t mean they are drown-proof! Minimize all distractions and provide all layers of protection necessary! Supervision should occur with both children and adults. In the end, nobody should ever swim alone!
  2. Install a pool fence or barrier – Barriers and fences are secondary to supervision. Once the pool fence is set in place, it provides high tension that prevents children from finding their way into the swimming pool. As a parent or guardian, you must make sure the pool fence is locked and secure when entering and leaving the swimming pool. Keep any objects away from the fence that kids can climb on or help them get over it. Please note, even though you have a pool fence or barrier you should still be supervising anyone around or in the pool. Your eyes are truly the best defense!
  3. Teach your children how to swim – By the age of four, it is vital you teach your kids how to swim. Swimming lessons are instrumental in instructing the kids’ skills and getting them comfortable in the pool. Again, just because they know how to swim doesn’t mean they aren’t a risk of danger so watching them at all times is vital.
  4. Ensure children adhere to all pool rules – Rules for your pool should be understood by your kids. If you swim in public pools you must seek out posted rules so you are aware of what is expected. Whether this is a residential or commercial swimming pool, children should never run around the pool, and they shouldn’t roughhouse. If diving or jumping occurs, make sure the water is deep enough to prevent injuries.

Pools are fun! The pool should be enjoyable by all those involved but they require work to make them safe. Ultimately, our concern is that all risks are kept to a minimum. Remember, always supervise anyone in the pool and if you should have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us today!
