As a swimming pool owner in Las Vegas you are going to have to deal with calcium issues in your pool water. This is extremely common everywhere in the Southwest United States because our fill water is loaded with calcium, magnesium and other hardness minerals. Our water comes from the Colorado River, which carves its way through the Grand Canyon where it picks up these hardness minerals. Most commonly people will have to deal with calcium buildup on water fixtures in the house, counter tops and glass surfaces. But, have you ever thought about what the white line around your tile in your pool means? That is an excess of calcium buildup in your swimming pool that is visible to you but what about the liner and filtration equipment? Calcium buildup in swimming pools is a nightmare and we hope this blog post gives you some insight on how you should deal with it.
Due to our extreme summer temperatures in the Las Vegas area, pool water will evaporate at a high rate but as pools lose water, the hardness minerals remain in solution. As the levels of calcium increases, it will begin to stain the water tile line, the liner of the swimming pool and your motors and filtration equipment. The same concerns that you have about your water features in the house should also be with your swimming pool too! If you have expensive water features or spillways in your swimming pool, you’re going to deal with this buildup much quicker. The water will splash and due to the heat, it will dry on the tile and your gorgeous water features will now be stained white! As much as it’s great to have all of these features, when living in an area with hard water it’s going to be harder to deal with.
So, when it gets time to change out the water in your swimming pool (recommended every two years) we hope you think twice before you do a typical drain and refill. Those take 2-3 days to perform, it wastes precious water and there’s always a risk of damaging your liner. Instead, Clark County Pool and Lawn offers a service where we can recycle your swimming pool water onsite! Whether you have a residential or commercial swimming pool, we come to you!
