How To Lower Calcium Hardness In Your San Diego Pool

As a swimming pool owner in San Diego, 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 scaling on water fixtures in the house, countertops, and glass surfaces. But have you ever thought about what the white line around the 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 interior finish 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.

Pool water will naturally evaporate but as pools lose water, the hardness minerals remain in the solution. As the levels of calcium increase, it will begin to scale the water tile line, the interior finish 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 more quicker. The water will splash and due to the heat, it will dry on the tile and your gorgeous water features will now be scaled with calcium! As much as it’s great to have all these features, when living in an area with hard water it’s going to be harder to deal with.

Changing Out Your Swimming Pool Water

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 interior finish. Instead, Williams Water Purification 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!
