With proper chemistry keeping your swimming pool crystal clear is easy.

How to lower calcium in your swimming pool is something most residents in Florida are going to need to deal with. It’s in our tap water and can cause numerous issues to your swimming pool if left untreated. If you’re a resident in Central or Southern Florida the drought news is becoming quite an issue. Not to mention, if you have a swimming pool in the Florida area there are a lot more eyes on you because on average each swimming pool holds 20,000-gallons which are always in a discussion when water is at a premium. The bottom line is water is precious and when there’s a shortage, swimming pools are always discussed because of water loss etc. It’s warm in Florida, swimming pools are a must to cool down and there are ways you can conserve water even if you own a swimming pool! The purpose of this blog is going to inform you on how to lower calcium in the pool by doing a typical drain and refill or a much better alternative to that!

Swimming pool calcium can cause issues to your swimming pool. Specifically, high levels of calcium hardness can scale your water tile line, interior finish, filtration equipment, spillways and decorative water features. Does this sound familiar? Has anyone ever told you that you need to drain your swimming pool because the calcium hardness, total dissolved solids (TDS), cyanuric acid (CYA), phosphate, or salt levels are too high? If so, we want to introduce you to Reverse Osmosis (RO) Mobile Filtration for both residential and commercial swimming pools that can help if you have too much calcium in your pool water!

RO filtration has the ability to lower the following:

  • Calcium hardness
  • TDS
  • CYA
  • Phosphates
  • Salts
  • Waterborne diseases
  • So much more

This type of filtration is the best for swimming pools because it can lower calcium in the pool to levels far less than tap water. It also has the ability to conserve up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool which is a phenomenal alternative during drought conditions and when you’re urged to conserve water. This means you have the ability to conserve on average 20,000-gallons of water in less than a day! By using RO filtration you will also have the ability to swim in drinking quality water which is the safest for you and your family. So, if you’re tired of getting out of the swimming pool with red/burning eyes, dry/itchy skin, contact us today to give you the best quality of water to swim in today!

On the other hand, with a typical drain and refill, this process will waste on average 20,000-gallons of water, it can take 2-3 days to complete, you run the risk of damaging your interior finish by exposing it and you will be filling up the swimming pool with moderately hard water again. That’s why we will always recommend mobile filtration because the water quality is superior to a drain and refill!

These are the only two ways you can lower calcium hardness levels in your swimming pool. Since Florida is in a drought, we will always recommend mobile filtration because it gives you an opportunity to conserve the water and as a swimming pool owner the largest water conservation act you can do is not drain your swimming pool!

Our mobile filtration service (The Puripool Process) is currently being offered in California, Nevada, Texas and Arizona. Our Service Provider model is a great addition to your existing swimming pool business. If you’re interested in becoming one of our Service Providers, contact us today!
