When it comes to pool water purification there are many commonly asked questions that we hear regularly. Purifying swimming pool water has been going on for over eight years but for many, it’s still new in terms of their knowledge level. With that said, we want to use this blog post to tackle some of the most commonly asked questions in regards to our service. Please note, Reverse Osmosis (RO) Mobile Filtration can be used on both residential and commercial swimming pools. The process can also be performed 365 days a year and on any type of swimming pool. So, what are some of the most popular questions we get asked? These are some of the most common ones:
How Long Will It Take To Process My Swimming Pool Water?
Currently, we are able to treat 40,000 gallons a day, to drinking water levels! Obviously, the size of your pool is the deciding factor on how long it will take based on this level. However, most pools will take between 8 and 10 hours to complete. If you have a saltwater pool or for pools with high calcium hardness/total dissolved solids it will take longer to complete. In the end, residential swimming pools will be completed in less than a day!
Is It Safe To Have This Process Done?
It sure is! In fact, you can actually swim in the pool during the filtration process! There is no power cords or electricity in or near your pool, nor are they laying around for someone to trip on. An inch and a half hose are placed in one end of the pool to draw the water back to the trailer for treatment and another inch and a half hose returns the clean (drinkable!) water back to your pool. That’s it! We are 100% self-contained and do not need to inconvenience you for electricity or extension cords or an outlet. All we need from you is a fresh water supply to replenish the small amount of water, approximately 15%, that is lost during the process.
What Does Pool Water Purification Lower?
Pool Water Purification lowers the following:
- Calcium hardness
- Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)
- Cyanuric Acid (CYA)
- Waterborne Diseases
How Long Does The Process Last?
This is probably one of the most popular questions we get asked and it is somewhat hard to give an exact timeline but at a minimum, each pool should be filtered at least every two years! Factors that can change this are saltwater pools, pools with decorative water features, negative edge pools etc. might need to be filtered more because scaling occurs quicker and saltwater chlorinators struggle with high levels of calcium hardness. To be honest, we have customers that want us back in six months, one year, two years and three years and the easiest way to answer this is to have your pool water filtered at least every two years. Trust us when we say, you will begin to notice a difference in the quality and clarity of the water which is usually the biggest sign that it’s time to have us back.
Remember, when you choose to have your pool water filtered regularly (every two years) you can prevent excess scaling, damage to the interior finish and filtration equipment. Think of our service as a required maintenance for your swimming pool and a way to protect your investment. In the end, you will love swimming in drinking quality water and will definitely notice a difference when higher levels of calcium hardness returns!
