As summer continues to roll on, have you been having issues with your swimming pool? Have the pool stores and pool professionals told you it’s time to drain your swimming pool because of any of the following issues:
- High levels of calcium hardness
- Your total dissolved solids (TDS) levels are too high
- Cyanuric acid (CYA) is off the charts
- You have a waterborne disease
- Your salt levels are too high
- Phosphates are high
What if you don’t want to drain it?
The simple answer to that question is, you don’t have to drain your swimming pool because Pool Water Recycling offers a much better solution. For the longest time, the only answer to lowering calcium hardness, TDS, CYA, phosphates, salts and waterborne diseases was to drain a swimming pool and start over. Now, especially when temperatures are above 80 degrees, draining a swimming pool can be extremely dangerous. Many people are looking for alternatives to draining a swimming pool and frankly other than repairs to your swimming pool you shouldn’t have to!
About every two years (sometimes less if you have a salt water system) you should change out the water in your swimming pool. Our fill water in the Orange County area is loaded with calcium, magnesium and other hardness minerals. As swimming pool water evaporates, the hardness minerals remain in solution and gradually increase in concentration. When they get high in concentration you will begin to notice the following issues:
- Calcium scaling on the water tile line
- Calcium scaling on the interior finish of the swimming pool
- Hardness build-up on filtration equipment
- Calcium scaling on spillways and decorative water features
- Potential increase in chlorine and other chemicals used
- Calcium scaling on your salt water chlorinator (causing it to malfunction)
If you live in the Orange County area and have a swimming pool you are going to have to deal with this and if you start recycling your swimming pool water every couple of years it will make your life easier and keep your pool looking great. At Pool Water Recycling, we offer Reverse Osmosis (RO) mobile filtration that lowers calcium hardness, TDS, CYA, phosphates, salts and waterborne diseases while conserving up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool. We also guarantee you better water than tap. This process is completely self contained which means we run on our own power, we can typically complete a residential job in less than a day and since you can swim in the pool while the process is being performed there is no downtime. We also never expose the interior finish of the swimming pool, which is a great benefit to prevent cracking or floating of the swimming pool.
This service is very comparable in price to a drain and refill and you will love swimming in the pool when the process is done. For those looking for an alternative to a drain and refill, this is it!
