Recycling Vs. Draining A Swimming Pool
In the Grants Pass area, we don’t deal with extremely high temperatures in the summertime. In fact, for a majority of the year, the temperatures are in an area where it still might be safe to drain a swimming pool but at Oregon Pure Water we want to make you aware of a new service in our area. Before Oregon Pure Water came into existence most residential and commercial swimming pool owners chose to drain their swimming pool if they were dealing with hard water or high levels of Cyanuric Acid (CYA). But, draining a pool is a sign of the past and if you’re into water conservation you’re going to love our option.
In the Oregon area, the fill water for swimming pools is loaded with calcium, magnesium, and other hardness minerals. As your pool water evaporates the calcium will remain in solution and gradually build up in concentration. When this happens it will begin to scale your interior finish, the water tile line, and your filtration equipment. Not to mention, CYA is another major problem in our area, and when these levels get high it can make it a nightmare to take care of a swimming pool.
When this happens you only have two options, you can drain the swimming pool and fill it up with hard water again or you can recycle the swimming pool water using The Puripool Process. If you decide to drain the swimming pool it can be a painstaking 2-3 day process, you lose hours that you could be swimming and as stated above, the fill water is already loaded with high levels of Calcium Hardness. Not to mention this can also be very dangerous for your swimming pool. Whereas, instead of draining you could recycle the swimming pool water with Reverse Osmosis filtration which is a great alternative to draining and it conserves up to 85% of the existing water and with water conservation being so important in Oregon, saving up to 85% of the water is a huge factor.
Oregon Pure Water is operating a mobile filtration trailer from Pure Water Industries which allows us to pull up to your residential or commercial swimming pool, drop a suction and return line into the swimming pool and filter out the calcium, CYA, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), salts and other hardness minerals without draining the pool. We utilize Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration to provide you with the best water quality for you to swim in. We are proud of the service we are now offering swimming pool owners in Oregon and if you should have any questions, please contact us today!
