Stop Draining Swimming Pools

As a residential or commercial swimming pool owner in the Greater Phoenix area, chances are someone will recommend draining your swimming pool every two years. This is recommended because the following levels get high:

  • Calcium Hardness
  • Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)
  • Cyanuric Acid (CYA)
  • Salts
  • Phosphates

Another reason why a pool drain would be recommended is if you have a waterborne disease like Cryptosporidium (Crypto). But, at Foothills Poolwater Revival we want to educate you on why you should stop draining your swimming pool. First of all, it’s dangerous, it takes on average 2-3 days, it’s loss of pool time, and you are just going to fill your pool up with the valley’s hard water again. Whereas by utilizing our mobile filtration technology there’s no downtime, we can process most residential pools in less than a day and since the interior finish isn’t exposed, there are minimal risks in using our service. Since we live in an area where water is at a premium and the temperatures are well above 8o degrees, you shouldn’t drain a pool and we hope this blog post helps explain why our service is a much better option!

Foothills Poolwater Revival utilizes Reverse Osmosis (RO) mobile filtration to lower Calcium Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids, Cyanuric Acid, Salts, Phosphates, and Waterborne Diseases without draining the swimming pool. This means we will provide you with drinking quality water to swim in and the risks of draining a swimming pool go away. This also means we can take your calcium, TDS, and CYA levels lower than tap water which allows you to swim in water that not only looks better but feels better too! Please keep in mind, our tap water in the valley is extremely hard (400 parts per million and higher) and this can cause scaling to your water tile line, interior finish, filtration equipment, spillways, and water features if left untreated! When scaling occurs it is not only an eyesore to look at but expensive to remove. That’s why we highly recommend recycling your swimming pool water every two years to prevent this from occurring and preventing major damage to your swimming pool.

So, if anyone has recommended a drain and refill to you in the pool industry, we ask that you think of us first. We promise you will love the water and your swim experience will be a lot more fun.
