Lowering Hardness Minerals in Swimming Pools
If you own a residential or commercial swimming pool in the Grants Pass, Oregon area, you’re going to need to deal with hardness minerals in your swimming pool. In the swimming pool industry, this is defined as Calcium Hardness (CH) and in our area, it can be moderately high. In the swimming pool industry, your pool is recommended to have between 200 and 400 ppm. With that said, when you fill up your swimming pool with our tap water you are already close to the upper edge of what is recommended, and since this number will rise over time, we feel it is important to discuss the dangers of high Calcium Hardness levels in your swimming pool!
In the swimming pool industry, pool professionals will recommend a drain and refill every two to three years to prevent excessive levels of calcium and other hardness minerals from scaling your interior finish, tile, and filtration equipment. This scaling occurs because when pool water evaporates, the calcium will remain in the water and gradually build up in concentration. When this happens, calcium will begin to scale your water tile line, decorative water features, the interior finish, your filtration equipment, and your salt chlorinator if you have one. At Oregon Pure Water, we are committed to providing you with not only the best-looking swimming pool but one that also has superior water quality too! That is why we offer a revolutionary filtration process that not only lowers Calcium Hardness but also gives you the best water quality to swim in!
One of our signature services is The Puripool Process. This is a mobile filtration service that comes to your residential or commercial swimming pool and recycles your pool water onsite using Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration. RO will lower Calcium Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Cyanuric Acid (CYA), salts, phosphates, nitrates, and waterborne diseases without draining the swimming pool. Not only do we conserve up to 80% of the existing water which is great for water conservation but we also put superior quality water back in your swimming pool. This will make it easier to manage your swimming pool and if is performed every couple of years it can help with the scaling too.
Please keep in mind a standard drain and refill will not only waste the water but put moderately hard water back in your swimming pool. By using RO filtration we can easily take your calcium down to a low level which will give you better water quality and water that is softer to swim in. Our RO filtration can be performed on most pools including saltwater. If you should have any questions about this service, please contact us today to learn more!
