Removing calcium from your swimming pool is an issue you will have as a pool owner in Southern California. Depending on where you are in Southern California, the calcium hardness levels coming out of our tap water is extremely high and usually at the higher end of the recommended hardness levels. The levels that are recommended for your swimming pool are between 200 – 400 parts per million (ppm). Typically in the Los Angeles/Orange County area where we primarily service, the hardness levels coming out of the tap are 250ppm. With that being said it is extremely common for swimming pool owners to want to remove calcium from their swimming pools. Whether you have a residential or commercial swimming pool, we service them all and want this blog post to inform you on why you will want to change out the water in your swimming pool every two years.
As swimming pool water evaporates, calcium and other hardness minerals remain in solution and gradually rise in concentration. Please note that during the long hot summer months water can evaporate up to one inch per day, which means hardness concentrations will increase in your swimming pool much faster. When this happens, calcium will stain your water tile line, the liner of your swimming pool, filtration equipment, spillways and decorative water features. It isn’t much fun to look at especially with nice tile and water features but it will happen if you don’t change out the water in your pool to remove/lower calcium hardness levels.
At Pool Water Recycling, we offer a mobile filtration service that comes to your residence or commercial property and recycles the water. This is an alternative to a drain a refill and is much better for the following reasons:
We can finish most residential jobs in less than a day
We can recycle the water 365 days a year
You can swim in the pool while the process is being performed
We can lower your hardness minerals too much lower levels than tap
We conserve up to 85% of the existing water in the pool
We remove waterborne diseases
We never expose the liner
So much more
Our mobile filtration trailer is equipped with Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration. We can lower calcium hardness, total dissolved solids (TDS), cyanuric acid (CYA), phosphates, salts and waterborne diseases without draining the swimming pool. Since we provide your swimming pool with drinking quality water, it’s much more fun to swim in and it can prevent calcium buildup if you perform the service every two years (every year for commercial pools). The service is environmentally friendly, allows you to conserve a lot of water and will prolong the lifespan of your investment if you choose to recycle your water every couple of years.
