The Puripool Process for Swimming Pools
If you have a swimming pool and live in the South and Southwest United States you’re going to have to deal with high Calcium Hardness levels in your swimming pool. As water evaporates in a swimming pool, calcium, magnesium, and other hardness minerals stay behind in solution, gradually build up in concentration, and start to scale the water tile line, the interior finish of the swimming pool, and filtration equipment. If you have decorative tile, fountains, or other water features this can make looking at them extremely difficult because the scaling will get worse and it can make your backyard paradise look like an eyesore. In the swimming pool industry, it’s recommended to have your calcium levels between 200 – 400 parts per million (ppm). In some parts of the United States including the San Diego area the water coming out of the tap is 400 ppm and higher. When calcium levels get high, Pure Water Industries recommends recycling your swimming pool using The Puripool Process. The Puripool Process is Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration in mobile trailers that can come to your residential or commercial swimming pools to recycle your pool water. This process conserves up to 85% of the existing water in the pool, gives you much better water than a drain and refill, and prevents damage to your swimming pool when you drain it.
This past week we were called by a residential swimming pool owner who told us his calcium levels were extremely high in his swimming pool. He didn’t want to drain the swimming pool because he knew there was a better solution but needed to change out his water. When we showed up at his house, we analyzed the water chemistry and the following were the results we found….
Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) – 7852 ppm
Calcium Hardness – 850 ppm
Cyanuric Acid – 100 ppm
With Calcium Hardness and TDS levels this high, it can be extremely challenging to manage a swimming pool not to mention you’re going to deal with calcium scaling and potential long term damage to your pool. After filtering the swimming pool with our mobile filtration trailer we lowered their high levels to the following:
TDS – 852 ppm
Calcium Hardness – 120 ppm
Cyanuric Acid – 0 ppm
By using The Puripool Process they were able to conserve roughly 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool and were left with better water in their swimming pool than if they were to do a standard drain and refill!
