In the above picture, there is roughly 43,000 gallons of water in the swimming pool. Due to high calcium hardness and high cyanuric acid (CYA) levels it was recommended that they drain their swimming pool. High calcium levels is one of the main reasons why swimming pool owners should change out their water every two years. Depending on where in the United States you live you will be dealing with one of these issues and at Pure Water Industries we ask that you think twice before draining your swimming pool. No matter where you live, draining a swimming pool can be disastrous if not done right. The following are some of the issues that can happen:
- Cracking the liner
- The pool could float
- The walls could collapse
- It frankly is just a waste of water!
Since we are located in the Southwest United States, we are extremely concerned with the water but if you have the opportunity to save the water by recycling it instead, the risks go down substantially. With our mobile filtration “Puripool Process” the water level in the swimming pool never changes and the end product is much better than tap water and/or a typical drain and refill. The process lowers calcium hardness, total dissolved solids, salts, cyanuric acid and so much more! We can conserve up to 85% of the water in the swimming pool and you will never have to worry about any of the above issues. Depending on where you live, check out our service providers page to see if this service is available in your area.
A couple of weeks ago, we were called out to a 43,000-gallon salt swimming pool because their calcium hardness was too high for the system and instead of draining all that water, they wanted to conserve it. One of the major issues with salt pools is calcium hardness, which can cause the system to malfunction when the levels get too high. The calcium sticks to the electrode plates which prevents the production of chlorine. When this happens, the calcium levels in the water need to be lowered. This can be done with our mobile filtration Reverse Osmosis (RO) trailers. When we arrived at this 43,000-gallon swimming pool the customer’s initial chemistry was….
Calcium Hardness – 540 parts per million (ppm)
TDS – 4552ppm
Salt – 3002ppm
CYA – 130ppm
After filtering this swimming pool for 20 hours, we left the customer with the following chemistry and a functioning salt system. Not to mention, we conserved roughly 36,000 gallons too!
Calcium Hardness – 170ppm
TDS – 1589ppm
Salt – 1078ppm
CYA – 45ppm
