Pool Water Recycling in Las Vegas
If you are the owner of a residential or commercial swimming pool in the Las Vegas area, you’re going to need to familiarize yourself with hard water and how it affects your swimming pool. Even though your swimming pool needs some hard water or what is referred to as the minimum calcium requirements (200 parts per million) in the water to maintain the integrity of the interior finish, our fill/tap water has almost double that! The ideal range for Calcium Hardness (CH) in the pool industry is between 200 – 400 ppm and you will want to make sure the water doesn’t get too hard (over 600 ppm) because this is where challenges occur. Those challenges are listed below and we hope this blog post educates you on how Clark County Pool & Lawn can support you in having excellent water quality in your pool.
When Calcium Hardness levels in your swimming pool rise above 600 ppm which is extremely common in the Las Vegas area there is a multitude of other issues that occur and the most prominent issue is scaling of the water tile line, the interior finish, filtration equipment, spillways, and decorative water features. It can make handling the water chemistry in your swimming pool more challenging and most importantly if you don’t lower it soon, it can be extremely costly to remove!
So, what happens when levels climb above 600 ppm and how do you remove it?
When this happens, you have two choices…
- Drain and refill
- Reverse Osmosis (RO) Mobile Filtration offered by Clark County Pool & Lawn
In Las Vegas, if you choose to drain and refill your swimming pool there’s a huge risk of damaging your interior finish, the process can take 2-3 days and you will be filling your pool back up with at least 400 ppm water which is already on the upper edge of what is recommended.
On the other hand, if you choose RO filtration to remove calcium from your swimming pool we can complete most residential swimming pool jobs in less than a day, you can swim in the pool during filtration and we replace your current water with calcium levels that are much lower than our tap conditions. The water quality will be much better, you will enjoy swimming in your pool more and it will prolong the lifespan of your investment. Please keep in mind this service is available for commercial swimming pools as well and since you don’t need to drain the pool you can swim during filtration. So why not swim in superior quality water?
