Don’t Drain Your Swimming Pool
As a residential or commercial swimming pool owner in the San Diego area, water conservation should be on your mind. In fact, many people will state that if you want to save water you shouldn’t have a swimming pool. As much as that might be true to many, there are measures you can take to conserve water and one of the biggest ones is not draining your swimming pool! As a homeowner, not draining your swimming pool is the largest water conservation act you can do! By not draining your swimming pool you can save on average 20,000-gallons of water in less than a day and there are no other things you can do that will allow you to save more water than that.
So, why would you even need to drain a swimming pool?
There are a variety of reasons why both residential and commercial swimming pool owners would need to drain their swimming pools and the following are a few:
- High Calcium Hardness
- High Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)
- High Cyanuric Acid (CYA)
- High Salts
- Presence of a waterborne disease
When any of these levels get higher than what is recommended in the pool industry most pool professionals will suggest a drain and refill. When you drain a swimming pool it is a huge waste of water and this is something that can be prevented. With Pure Water Industries, we offer Reverse Osmosis (RO) mobile filtration that comes to your residential or commercial property and recycles the water on site. By recycling the water you can lower all of the issues above and conserve up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool. Just last week, we processed a 35,000-gallon swimming and when you work on a pool of that volume, you can make a serious impact on water conservation because, in less than a day, they were able to conserve roughly 30,000-gallons!!
