According to Wikipedia, “Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a water purification technology that uses a semipermeable membrane to remove ions, molecules, and larger particles from drinking water. In reverse osmosis, an applied pressure is used to overcome osmotic pressure, a colligative property, that is driven by chemical potential differences of the solvent, a thermodynamic parameter. Reverse osmosis can remove many types of dissolved and suspended species from water, including bacteria, and is used in both industrial processes and the production of potable water.” With the help of this process, we have mounted a large industrial RO system on a mobile trailer which allows us to recycle both residential and commercial swimming pools using this type of filtration. When we arrive, two hoses are placed in the swimming pool and one of them takes water from the swimming pool into our trailer where RO membranes remove calcium, total dissolved solids, cyanuric acid, bacteria and other problematic issues and returns drinking quality water to your swimming pool.

If you own a swimming pool in the Southern California area, it will be loaded with calcium and magnesium. This is because our fill water contains it. As your pool water evaporates, these minerals will remain in solution and build up in concentration. In about two years they will build up enough that most pool professionals will recommend a water change in your pool. At this point, you can either drain and refill your swimming pool with our hard tap water or hire us to do the job for you. By choosing Pool Water Recycling, you are guaranteed better water than tap, it will be more enjoyable to swim in and we can typically complete residential jobs in less than a day. By using Reverse Osmosis filtration we can also conserve up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool which is great for water conservation and our current drought situation.
