We do this by purifying your swimming pool water which not only makes it easier to maintain but also much more fun to swim in! When it comes to swimming pools in the Orange County area you are going to need to deal with following issues…..
Calcium (referred to as Calcium Hardness) in your swimming pool is going to be one of the most challenging situations you will have to deal with. It’s challenging because a majority of swimming pool owners aren’t aware of it, don’t know much about it and most importantly have no clue what to do when the levels get high (above 600ppm). With that said, we hope this blog post gives you some insight on what to do if you own a swimming pool and live in areas where the tap water is loaded with calcium, magnesium and other hardness minerals. Specifically, in our area (Orange County, Santa Ana, Newport Beach, Pasadena and others) our tap water comes from the Colorado River which carves its way through the Grand Canyon. Since the Grand Canyon is loaded with limestone the water is harder than most areas of the country. This causes numerous problems to your faucets, shower heads, countertops, sinks, glass and so much more. These are issues that homeowners are aware of because they see it all the time, but have you ever thought about what this might be doing to your swimming pool? It’s a lot and as a swimming pool owner, you should familiarize yourself with them!
As water evaporates, the calcium and other hardness minerals remain in solution and gradually increase in concentration. As these levels get higher and higher, you will start to notice calcium scaling on the water tile line, the interior finish of the swimming pool, your filtration equipment, decorative water features and so much more. If you own a salt pool this is going to affect you as well and if you spent a lot of money on decorative tile and water features, they will soon be loaded with thick white calcium that is extremely difficult and costly to remove!
Another issue that high calcium levels cause are challenges with maintaining the chemistry in your swimming pool. That’s why most pool professionals will recommend that you change out the water in your swimming pool every two years to prevent this problem. That is why we offer Reverse Osmosis (RO) Mobile Filtration which recycles your swimming pool water. It conserves 85% of the water that’s in the pool which is great during the drought, it never exposes the interior finish which prevents cracking and our promise is to give you better water than you’d get out of the tap. So, if calcium, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), or Cyanuric Acid (TDS) is high in your swimming pool, call us today to get drinking quality water back in your pool and conserve nature’s most precious resource, WATER!!
