Using Reverse Osmosis For Swimming Pool Water

Even though we just hit a new year, warmer temperatures in the Carlsbad/San Diego area will be here before we know it. For many of us, the swim season is our favorite time of year for barbecues, pool parties, family fun in the backyard, and cooling off in our backyard paradise. But, it isn’t uncommon during this time of the year when swimming pool owners think about draining their swimming pools. Our water is hard and hard water refers to high levels of calcium, magnesium, and other hardness minerals that are in our fill water. Over time, typically every two years, when the water gets hard in the swimming pool most pool professionals will recommend draining it when the temperatures fall below 90 degrees. At Williams Water Purification, we want to give you an alternative to draining your pool and we hope this blog post explains why our solution is much better!

We operate a mobile filtration trailer that is equipped with Reverse Osmosis (RO) membranes that comes to your residential or commercial property and recycles your swimming pool water instead. This process is a great alternative to a typical drain and refill because it allows for water conservation which is vital in Southern California and gives you a much better end product. Typically, when pools need to be drained, it can be for any of the following reasons….

  • High Calcium Hardness
  • High Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)
  • High Cyanuric Acid (CYA)
  • High Phosphates
  • High Salts
  • Presence of Waterborne diseases

Reverse Osmosis To Lower Calicium Hardness and TDS

During the summer, when evaporation occurs, calcium and other hardness minerals will remain in solution and start to scale the water tile line, the interior finish of the swimming pool and your filtration equipment. Since draining a swimming pool in the heat of the summer can cause damage to the liner, fall and winter is usually the time where swimming pool owners will change out the water. That’s why we want you to think twice about draining your pool because with our service, we come to you, we process the water using Reverse Osmosis filtration and our end product is much better than our tap water. Our service can be performed in less than a day, the interior finish of the pool is never exposed and we can conserve up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool!
