We are now officially recycling swimming pool water in the Phoenix area and we are beyond excited about completing our first week of work. During our first week, we were training and the learning curve on what we do was pretty intense but we are thrilled with the results and wanted to share them with you! To say we are excited is an understatement and so far the results of the four pools that we recycled were exactly what we expected. Now that we are providing this service in the Greater Phoenix area, we want to share with you why this will be the smartest decision you make when it’s time to change out the water in your swimming pool.
The pools that we recycled varied in size, shape, and levels of calcium hardness. They also had different interior finishes but none of that matters as our Reverse Osmosis (RO) mobile filtration trailer can filter them all. Some of the benefits of mobile filtration include:
- Lowers calcium hardness
- Lowers total dissolved solids (TDS)
- Lowers cyanuric acid (CYA)
- Lowers phosphates
- Lowers salt
- Removes waterborne diseases
- Conserves up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool
- No downtime (you can swim in the pool during filtration)
- Drinking quality water in your swimming pool
- Safer than a drain and refill because the surface of the pool is never exposed
- The water feels great
After completing our first week of work we want to highlight that we conserved 76,000-gallons of water in the Greater Phoenix area, we had four satisfied customers and the results of our mobile filtration trailer worked great. Tap water in the Phoenix area is extremely hard. The average tap water comes out at 400 parts per million which are on the higher end of what is recommended for your pool. As water evaporates the hardness minerals remain in solution and gradually increase in concentration. As their levels increase, calcium will scale the water tile line, the interior finish, your filtration equipment, spillways and water features. When this happens, it’s extremely costly to remove it. That’s why we recommend recycling your swimming pool water every two years. Of the four pools we recycled, the following had the largest amount of issues….
Calcium Hardness – 1700 parts per million (extremely high)
Phosphates – 4358 parts per billion (extremely high)
After filtering this 28,300-gallon swimming pool for 20 hours we were able to leave them with the following end results…
Calcium Hardness – 170 parts per million
Phosphates – 0
The key components with our filtration are it’s impossible to get water out of our tap that low in Phoenix and high levels of phosphates can cause algae blooms. Please keep in mind we were able to conserve 85% of their water and give them a far superior product to a typical drain and refill. If you’re curious to know more, contact us today!
