For the obvious reason, conserving water is by far one of the biggest reasons as to why recycling your swimming pool water is better but that’s just the start. In California, the United States and many other countries, water conservation is slowly becoming one of the biggest topics of discussion. About seven years ago we were told that we had to drain our swimming pool due to high calcium and total dissolved solid levels. To us, it seemed crazy to waste more than 20,000 gallons of water and we thought that there had to be a better way?? With a little bit of research and discussions with water recycling specialists, the mobile “Puripool Process” was constructed to primarily recycle swimming pool water. Just in the San Diego area, where we operate, there are more than 250,000 swimming pools that deal with hard water issues and should be drained every two years to prevent calcium buildup on the tile, the liner of the swimming pool and challenging chemistry issues. The best part about the “Puripool Process” is that it’s mobile and can filter pools everywhere. Not to mention, since we use Reverse Osmosis (RO) targeting swimming pools is just the beginning.
If you have a swimming pool, you’re going to deal with calcium, total dissolved solids, salts, cyanuric acid, phosphates, waterborne diseases and so much more. Eventually, the water will have to be changed and instead of wasting approximately 20,000 gallons of water by pumping it out and another 20,000 gallons by filling it up with tap water, it’s possible to recycle the water and conserve roughly 85% of the existing water in the pool. This is a viable option for everyone, especially if you are in areas where the drought conditions are high and water conservation is at a premium. In the last seven years, we have conserved close to twenty million gallons of water just by recycling instead of draining swimming pools. We have built 15 mobile filtration trailers for our service providers all over the United States and have just started working with FEMA because each mobile filtration trailer can produce 40,000 gallons of drinking water per day and if you combine all of them that’s well over 1/2 million gallons of water per day.
Draining a pool is a painstaking several day task and there is always a risk of cracking the foundation of the swimming pool when you empty out all of the water. Depending on where you live, tap water can be extremely hard to begin with so why not do your part by conserving the water in your swimming pool, recycling the existing water with RO membranes and enjoy crisp, clean and bacteria free water by hiring one of our service providers to conserve the water in your swimming pool or contacting us to learn how adding our mobile filtration trailers to your business would be a great addition.
