We recommend changing out your pool water at least every two years! Due to high Calcium Hardness (CH) and high Cyanuric Acid (CYA) levels, especially with salt pools, you should change out your pool water often. High calcium levels alone is one of the main reasons why swimming pool owners should change out their water every two years. In the San Diego area, we deal with high levels of Calcium Hardness in our tap water and it can cause major damages to not only your swimming pool but your salt chlorinator as well! At Pool Services Technologies, we offer an alternative to a typical drain and refill because draining a swimming pool can cause the following:
Since we are located in the Southwest United States, we are extremely concerned with the water but if you have the opportunity to save the water by recycling it instead, the risks go down substantially. With our Reverse Osmosis (RO) mobile filtration “Puripool Process” the water level in the swimming pool never changes and the end product is much better than tap water. The process lowers CH, TDS, salts, CYA, and so much more! We can conserve up to 85% of the water in the swimming pool and you will never have to worry about any of the above issues.
Just last week, we were called out to a 43,000-gallon salt swimming pool because to prevent calcium scaling on his salt chlorinator he requests our service every six months. One of the major issues with salt pools is calcium, which can cause the system to malfunction when the levels get too high. The calcium scales the electrode plates which prevents the production of chlorine. When this happens, the calcium levels in the water need to be lowered. This can be done with our mobile filtration Reverse Osmosis (RO) trailers. When we arrived at this 43,000-gallon swimming pool the customer’s initial chemistry was….
Calcium Hardness – 520 parts per million (ppm)
TDS – 5306ppm
Salt – 3483ppm
CYA – 60ppm
After filtering this swimming pool for 20 hours, we left the customer with the following chemistry and a functioning salt system. Not to mention, we conserved roughly 36,000 gallons too!
Calcium Hardness – 190ppm
TDS – 1983ppm
Salt – 1539ppm
CYA – 25ppm
Many salt chlorinators recommend Calcium Hardness between 200 – 400ppm which is challenging to achieve with our tap water that’s why he chooses to recycle his pool water instead. If you have any questions about how this service works, please give us a call at 800-535-0778.
