Do you own a swimming pool in areas where there’s high Calcium Hardness (CH)? Are you looking for alternatives to draining a swimming pool because a pool professional told you it was time? When it comes to rising CH levels in your swimming pool the most commonly referred way to lower it is by draining and refilling your swimming pool. Did you know that can take up to 2-3 days? Did you know that when you fill the pool back up the water is already hard? When it comes to your swimming pool high levels of Calcium Hardness will destroy it over time. The calcium will scale the water tile line, the interior finish, spillways, your salt chlorinator, decorative water features and filtration equipment. As your pool water filters, it can also build up in the plumbing which can cause issues too. As a resident in San Diego County and many areas of the country, this is a common problem and we hope this blog post gives you insight on why recycling your swimming pool water is a much better idea!
In the swimming pool industry, standard levels of Calcium Hardness is between 200 – 400 parts per million (ppm). In many parts of the country maintaining these levels can be challenging because as pool water evaporates, the hardness minerals remain in solution and gradually build up in concentration. As calcium builds up it will begin to scale everything in your swimming pool. When it scales, it can be not only challenging to remove but also expensive. That’s why we recommend changing out the water in your swimming pool every two years to prevent this from happening. If you own a salt chlorinator it might need to be changed out sooner. Since our water coming out of the tap is moderately hard, we recommend using our Reverse Osmosis (RO) Mobile Filtration trailer to recycle your water instead. Since this trailer is mobile we can come to your residential or commercial swimming pool and recycle the water on your property. Our mobile filtration trailer can lower the following:
- Calcium Hardness
- Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)
- Cyanuric Acid (CYA)
- Waterborne Diseases
Most residential swimming pools can be filtered in less than a day and by choosing to use our mobile filtration trailer you can enjoy the following:
- The best water quality
- Swimming in the pool during filtration
- The ability to conserve 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool
- Water that not only looks better but feels better too
