High Calcium Hardness Levels Will Destroy Your Swimming Pool

If you own a swimming pool in the Las Vegas area, you’re going to need to deal with high levels of calcium coming out of our tap water. In fact, calcium levels might be as high as 400 parts per million (ppm) or higher which is on the high end of what is recommended for your swimming pool! Since it is higher than what is recommended it is important to familiarize yourself with the damage it can cause and how you should deal with it.

Challenges with High Levels of Calcium Hardness In Your Pool Water

As you are already aware, calcium and other hardness minerals are present in our tap water. As soon as you fill up your pool with water, it is already too hard for the pool! This presents problems for you and your pool and we hope this blog post helps to explain what those are. Calcium will scale your water tile line, interior finish, water features, spillways, and filtration equipment. When your pool water evaporates the hardness minerals remain in solution and gradually build up in concentration which means more scaling and more problems. It can be tough to look at, hard to take care of and take life off of your swimming pool and at this point, most pool professionals will recommend a water change! This means you can drain and refill your swimming pool or recycle the water.

Honestly, since our water is hard we think the choice is simple. At Clark County Pool & Lawn we offer pool water recycling. This service is mobile, comes to your residential swimming pool and recycles the water onsite. It will lower Calcium Hardness, TDS, and CYA to levels not possible with a drain and refill. In fact, we will leave most pools at 150ppm which is far below tap water! We do this by utilizing Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration which will give you and your family the best water to swim in.  We recommend utilizing this service every 2 years to prevent major calcium buildup and to help prolong the lifespan of your swimming pool. It requires nothing of you and in the end, your pool water will not only look better but it will feel better too.
