High TDS Levels in Your Swimming Pool? No Problem……
If you own a swimming pool in the Las Vegas area you are going to run into problems with high levels of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS). In the pool industry, many pool professionals will measure hardness in your swimming pool by TDS! According to Wikipedia Total Dissolved Solids are referred to as, “a measure of the combined content of all inorganic and organic substances contained in a liquid in molecular, ionized or micro-granular (colloidal sol) suspended form.” Simply put this can be easier summarized by the levels of calcium and other hardness minerals in the fill water along with salts etc. This is one way that a variety of swimming pool industry people recommend that you should drain and refill your swimming pool. Although this is one way you can test for hardness minerals in the swimming pool, testing for Calcium Hardness (CH) should be the most widely used test for accuracy of needing to change out the water in our honest opinion.
As water evaporates, hardness minerals remain in solution and overtime these hardness minerals will increase in concentration and start scaling the tile line, the interior finish, and your filtration equipment. If calcium is not properly dealt with it can cause damage to the plumbing, your equipment, and can be an eyesore to look at on your tile and decorative water features. You can pay to have the calcium removed from the tile line (which is expensive) but if you don’t change out the water in your pool and lower the calcium and TDS levels in the swimming pool, it will just come back!
A majority of individuals in the pool industry would recommend a drain and refill but it’s a huge water waster and doesn’t really solve the problem. In Las Vegas, the tap water is extremely hard and when refilling a swimming pool it doesn’t give you the best water quality. That’s why our Reverse Osmosis (RO) Mobile Filtration trailer is the best solution not only because it allows you to conserve 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool but it also gives you drinking quality water in your swimming pool. It was designed to lower calcium, total dissolved solids, cyanuric acid (CYA), phosphates, salts, waterborne diseases and so much more. Choosing to go this route will not only allow you to conserve water but will give you and your family the best water to swim in too!
