Calcium in your swimming pool is going to be one of the most challenging situations you might have to deal with. It’s challenging because most swimming pool owners aren’t aware of it, don’t know much about it and most importantly have no clue what to do when the levels get high. We hope this blog post gives you some insight on what to do if you own a swimming pool and live in areas where the fill water is loaded with calcium and other hardness minerals. Specifically, in California, our tap water comes from the Colorado River which carves its way through the Grand Canyon. Since the Grand Canyon is loaded with limestone the water is harder than in most areas of the country. This causes numerous problems with faucets, shower heads, countertops, sinks and so much more. These are issues that most homeowners are aware of because they see them all the time, but what about your swimming pool? Have you ever thought about what high calcium levels in your water do to your swimming pool?
As water evaporates, the calcium, magnesium, and other hardness minerals remain in the solution and continue to rise. As these levels get higher and higher, you will start to notice calcium staining on the water tile line, the interior finish of the swimming pool, your filtration equipment, decorative fountains and so much more. If you spent a lot of money on decorative tile and water features, they will soon be loaded with thick white calcium that is extremely difficult to remove! Not to mention it’s an eyesore!
Another issue is that high calcium levels cause challenges with maintaining the chemistry in your swimming pool. That’s why most pool professionals will tell you that changing the water in your swimming pool every two years to prevent this problem is a smart idea. This is where Williams Water Purification comes into play. Instead of draining your pool, we have a way to conserve up to 85% of the water that’s in the pool, which is great during the drought, it never exposes the interior finish which prevents cracking and our promise is to give you better water than you’d get out of the tap.
