How Often Should I Use Reverse Osmosis Filtration On My Swimming Pool?

Posted by Ken Scheer on

When it comes down to filtering your swimming pool, you will need a sand, cartridge, or DE filter for daily filtering and to remove various contaminants. But, if you are looking to lower Calcium Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), Cyanuric Acid (CYA), phosphates, salts and waterborne diseases you will need to use Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration to do that. Your everyday filtering can't filter down to a low enough micron level to remove those so you will need to use RO filtration when any of those levels get high. With that said, here are some of the most commonly asked questions......

How often should I use RO filtration on my swimming pool?

This is somewhat of a hard question to answer because it depends on where you live and if you have a salt water chlorinator. In the Southwest United States, the calcium coming out of the tap is high which causes scaling to occur on the interior finish of the swimming pool and your salt water chlorinator. This can be an eyesore to look at and it can prevent your salt water chlorinator from working. In other areas of the country, your CYA will rise which causes other issues as well and you will need to use RO filtration to lower it. With that said, we highly recommend using the service every two years but depending on where you live you might need to do it sooner. If you want to prevent scaling and give you an opportunity to swim in the best water possible we recommend at least every two years.

Why should we use Reverse Osmosis filtration?

Simply put RO filtration gives you the best water quality possible. You can actually drink the water coming back into your pool. Not only that but it is also great for water conservation because it conserves up to 85% of the existing water in the swimming pool. Trust us, you will notice a difference in the feel of the water.

How long is the pool down during filtration?

It is never down during filtration except for the 30 minutes for us to set up and break down. Since there is no electricity in the pool and just a couple of hoses, you can actually swim in the pool during filtration. This makes it great for both residential and commercial swimming pools because there is no time lost.

How much does it cost?

Pure Water Industries (our sister company) has Service Providers all over California, Nevada, Arizona, and Texas. On average everyone charges 3 cents per gallon. So an average size pool (20,000 gallons) costs 600.00 to process.

If you truly want to swim in the best quality of water, prevent filtration equipment and salt chlorinators from breaking down due to high Calcium Hardness levels this is a service you will want to perform on your swimming pool. Not only will your water look great but it will feel great too. If you're looking to perform The Puripool Process on your swimming pool, contact a Service Provider today!
