Draining Your Swimming Pool Can Be Dangerous

With fall less than three weeks away, we can start hearing it now, “Your pool water is hard, you need to drain it!” Typically if your Calcium Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), or Cyanuric Acid (CYA) levels are high the most common recommendation from a pool professional would be to drain your swimming pool. At Pool Water Recycling we’ve heard it all the time, we know it’s the most common recommendation but we want to educate you on why recycling your pool water is a much better solution. For the past four years, we have been recycling both residential and commercial swimming pools all while achieving the best results for you and your swimming pool!

Our service is mobile, which means we come to you. We utilize Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration which has the ability to lower the following:

  • Calcium Hardness
  • Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)
  • Cyanuric Acid (CYA)
  • Phosphates
  • Salts
  • Waterborne Diseases

By utilizing RO filtration we are able to achieve results that are much better than tap water. To put it simply, would you drink the tap water in the Orange County area? We didn’t think so but you can drink the water that is returning to your swimming pool from our filtration equipment! That means we provide you with the best water quality for your swimming pool. The water not only looks better but it feels better too! So, why would you want to drain the swimming pool when the process takes days, it wastes on average 20,000-gallons of water, and the chance of cracking your interior finish is high? We often wonder the same and want to share results with you of a recent job we performed. The following was the initial chemistry:

Calcium Hardness – 740ppm

Total Dissolved Solids – 3000ppm

CYA – 100ppm

After filtering this 30,000-gallon swimming pool for 22 hours we were able to lower their water chemistry to the following:

Calcium Hardness – 140ppm (our tap water is usually 300ppm and higher)

Total Dissolved Solids – 780ppm

Cyanuric Acid – 50ppm

By using our mobile filtration system they were able to swim in the pool during filtration, we were able to conserve up to 85% of the existing water in the pool and there was no downtime. In the end, our process is far superior to a drain and refill and we would love to have the opportunity to work with you. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
