Lowering Calcium Hardness Levels in Las Vegas

If you own a residential or commercial swimming pool in Las Vegas it can be challenging due to our hard water. In fact, Las Vegas has some of the hardest water in the country! With water coming out of our tap at 400 parts per million (ppm) and higher, it can make owning a swimming pool extremely challenging! Did you know that in the swimming pool industry, the normal levels of Calcium Hardness (CH) in a swimming pool is between 200 – 400 ppm? That means that when you fill up a swimming pool with our tap water you are already at the highest level of calcium! That’s right, Las Vegas’s water comes out of the tap at 400 ppm and higher!! So, what exactly should you do? Well, at Clark County Pool & Lawn we have the solution and we hope this blog post helps to inform you of why having too much calcium in your swimming pool could destroy your investment.

Do you know that white ring that many swimming pools have on the tile? Have you ever wondered why your decorative water features are all scaled or why your salt chlorinator isn’t working if you own one? Well, as residents in Las Vegas, high levels of Calcium in our tap water is the problem which means you must change out the water in your swimming pool on a regular basis to prevent major damage to your swimming pool. When pool water evaporates, the calcium, magnesium, and other hardness minerals remain in solution and gradually build up in concentration. If you choose not to lower the calcium it will scale your tile, the interior finish, filtration equipment, spillways, decorative water features, and your salt chlorinator if you have one. In fact, if you leave your water untreated it isn’t uncommon for us to see Calcium Hardness levels measured at 1000 ppm and higher! This isn’t good. In fact, the damage that can happen will not only be expensive to remove but also expensive to repair it starts to ruin your filtration equipment and scale your plumbing.

That’s why we want to introduce you to our Reverse Osmosis (RO) mobile filtration trailer that has the ability to lower Calcium Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Cyanuric Acid (CYA), phosphates, nitrates, salts, waterborne diseases and so much more without draining the swimming pool. This process has the ability to give you much better water than tap and with water quality that is the best! It’s RO! Since we don’t drain the swimming pool this service can be performed 365 days a year, It’s safe on all surfaces and conserves 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool. By choosing to use this service every couple of years you can prevent scaling on the tile, interior finish, and filtration equipment.
