What Are The Risks of Draining Your Swimming Pool?
If you own a swimming pool and live in the Dallas area, Southwest United States or Southern United States you are going to deal with hard water. Let’s face it, our tap water is loaded with calcium and other hardness minerals and is the leading reason as to why swimming pool owners need to drain their swimming pools. In the Dallas area, the water coming out of the tap is roughly 300 parts per million (ppm). The recommended hardness levels for a swimming pool are between 200-400 ppm. As our temperatures warm up, so does water evaporation in the swimming pool. When this happens, the hardness minerals remain in solution and gradually increase overtime. When this happens, you will notice calcium deposits on the water tile line of the swimming pool. Visually this can be extremely devastating to see on the tile and decorative water features but it also ruins the liner of the swimming pool and equipment too. Based on the above information, with water this hard, it’s recommended to change our your water every couple of years.
At Weber Pools, we realize that this is an extremely common problem and have come up with a solution so you don’t have to drain your swimming pool anymore due to high hardness minerals. In the Dallas area there are a large number of fiberglass and vinyl swimming pools. The risk of the liner collapsing or the swimming pool “popping out” of the foundation when you drain it is extremely high and common. The amount of money to replace the liner or reset the swimming pool is extremely expensive and not worth the risk. Concrete swimming pools are also at a risk because you can easily crack the liner when the outside temperature is above 80 degrees and the liner is no longer wet. Due to these common factors you should really think twice before draining your swimming pool.
Weber Pools located Pure Water Industries in San Diego, California who designs mobile filtration units that recycle swimming pool water. With that said, these mobile Reverse Osmosis (RO) systems can come to your home or commercial property and recycle the swimming pool water instead of draining it. The liner is never exposed and since the water isn’t removed from the swimming pool you never have to worry about the plaster cracking or the swimming pool popping out of the foundation.
