It’s a story we hear a lot and one that is extremely common during the swim season…. “I took a water sample to a pool store and they told me I needed to drain my swimming pool!” This was shocking to me because I never knew you should change out the water in a swimming pool and most importantly this isn’t something I want to do with water at a premium. We understand this concern and want this blog post to inform you on why they recommend changing out the water, when you should do it and the options you have for changing out the water in your swimming pool. In the end, you have two solutions, a drain and refill or you can recycle it.
In the Los Angeles area, the water coming out of the tap is moderately hard. It typically measures 400 parts per million which are on the higher scale for what is recommended in your swimming pool. As your pool water evaporates, calcium and other hardness remain in solution and gradually build up in concentration. When this happens, calcium will scale your tile, interior finish, filtration equipment, spillways and decorative water features. It isn’t something that is fun to look at and when it scales, it can be challenging and expensive to remove! As these calcium levels increase they will eventually get to a point where pool professionals will recommend a water change. When this happens, you can choose to do a drain and refill which takes approximately 2-3 days, you run the risk of cracking the interior finish, you are filling the pool back up with moderately hard water and you average wasting 20,000-gallons of water.
Whereas with Reverse Osmosis (RO) Mobile Filtration we can bring our mobile trailer to you home or business and recycle your swimming pool water onsite. This form of filtration has the ability to lower calcium hardness, total dissolved solids (TDS), cyanuric acid (CYA), phosphates, salts, waterborne diseases and so much more! This form of filtration can be completed on most residential swimming pools in less than a day. You can also swim in the pool while the process is being performed and have the ability to conserve up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool. With this option, we guarantee you better water than tap and you will have the opportunity to swim in drinking quality water. With Pool Water Recycling we guarantee you the following:
- Your calcium hardness will be lower than tap water
- Your water quality will be the best
- The clarity of the water will be great
- You will enjoy the feel of the water
- You will conserve a lot of water
