This is a subject that is definitely discussed a lot in the swimming pool industry especially for those that live in the Las Vegas area. Our fill water is extremely hard and it forces residential and commercial swimming pool owners to drain their swimming pools every two years! Most people aren’t aware of this time frame or even the fact that they need to change out the water in their swimming pool but we hope this blog post can educate you on why you need to change out the water, how it will protect your swimming pool and why you should think twice before you actually drain it!
As a resident of Las Vegas, we are pretty sure you are aware of the hard water we have. This hard water destroys shower heads, leaves hard water spots on sinks and counter tops, ruins clothes over time and leaves calcium deposits on everything it comes in contact with. With that said, can you imagine what it would do to your swimming pool as the water runs through pipes, filtration equipment etc? Well, calcium hardness scales your water tile line, the interior finish, filtration equipment, decorative water features, and spillways. Even though calcium is naked to the human eye in the water when it scales that is a completely different story. It is expensive to remove and it can cause thousands of dollars in damage to your pool if it isn’t taken care of regularly and by regularly we recommend every two years!
When water evaporates in your swimming pool, these hardness minerals remain in solution and gradually build up in concentration. Typically, it is around the two-year mark when this concentration gets to a point where the scaling occurs and when a water change is recommended by pool professionals. It’s recommended because it can prevent the scaling from occurring along with other issues too!
Water is at a premium in the Las Vegas area and instead of draining your pool when pool professionals recommend it we want you to consider Reverse Osmosis (RO) Mobile Filtration instead. This service comes to your residential or commercial swimming pool and recycles the water onsite. With RO we have the ability to lower calcium hardness, total dissolved solids (TDS), cyanuric acid (CYA), phosphates, salts, waterborne diseases and so much more without draining the swimming pool. This filtration allows you to swim in the pool which prevents downtime, it allows you to conserve 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool and gives you drinking quality water in your pool which is much better than our tap water.
This service (if performed every two years) will keep calcium levels to a minimum which can and will prolong the lifespan of your swimming pool and it will also save you time and money. If you’re curious as to how this service works or if you have questions on booking your appointment, call us today!
