If you have a swimming pool in your home many people ask, how can you save water with all the evaporation and the need to change out the water every couple of years due to calcium and other hardness mineral buildup? In this blog post, we want to highlight those and make you aware of a few different things you can do to save water around your house especially when you have a swimming pool.
When the temperatures warm up, you’re going to deal with evaporation and depending on where you live and how hot it gets, that could be up to an inch each day. This can mean thousands of gallons of water in a swim season but you can use a pool cover which helps slow the evaporation that occurs. It might not always be the most ideal especially when you use your swimming pool so much but it is definitely one way to help with evaporation.
Another way that swimming pool owners can conserve water with their swimming pool is recycling the water instead of draining their swimming pool. If you live in the Southwest United States, you are probably familiar with our hard water in the tap. This hard water is loaded with calcium and other hardness minerals that cause calcium hardness, salts and total dissolved solids levels to increase. When these levels increase to certain amounts, most pool professionals will recommend changing out the water in your swimming pool. At Pool Services Technologies, we want to make you aware of our mobile filtration system because it works better and more efficient than a typical drain and refill, which wastes so much water. By using a mobile filtration system we come to you. Two hoses come out of the trailer where water is taken from the swimming pool into a mobile filtration trailer which houses Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration to lower the following issues:
By using high-pressure RO membranes, we are able to conserve 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool, you can swim in the pool while the process is being performed and we give you a much better end product than tap water. On average if a homeowner uses our service they can save up to 20,000 gallons of water in less than a 24-hour period. So the next time someone recommends draining your swimming pool, please contact us first!
