Pool Draining & Reverse Osmosis Services
Here at GL Pools, our main goal is to provide our clients with premium pool cleaning services. In order to stay consistent with that goal, we perform annual advanced water tests on every single one of our clients’ pools. We test for things like calcium hardness, cyanuric acid, and total dissolved solids. Over time, these things tend to build up which forces us to use excessive chemicals, makes it incredibly difficult to control algae, and risks the lifespan of your equipment and pool finish.
Traditionally, a pool draining service has been used to restore water freshness. However, at GL Pools, we utilize a faster and more environmentally friendly process called reverse osmosis. Reverse osmosis for pools is a filtration process that reduces or eliminates harmful elements from your water, resulting in your pool looking and feeling cleaner without using the standard pool draining service process.
How is it any different from traditional pool draining service?
While a traditional pool draining service of refilling your pool will likely solve a lot of the same problems that reverse osmosis for pools does, we typically recommend reverse osmosis over a traditional pool draining service for the following reasons:
- It eliminates the risk of your pool “popping” due to a high-water table
- It conserves approximately 80% of the water in the pool
- Oftentimes, the water will actually be cleaner than the water that comes from the tap
- Typically, the whole reverse osmosis process takes 24-48 hours and pricing starts at $650, which includes the entire reverse osmosis process, and the necessary chemicals needed to rebalance your pool.
What are the risks if I do not drain my pool or use reverse osmosis for pools?
Too high of a calcium reading and you will be at a much higher risk of seeing calcium buildup on the tile and walls as well as adverse effects on LSI, which can make the water feel harsh and can damage the equipment and the plaster. In the case of too much cyanuric acid, it is a risk to your heater and plaster as it can strip out the copper lining in the heat exchangers, causing them to burst or to stain the plaster or tile in the pool. If TDS levels get too high, you might start experiencing skin/eye irritation as well as algae buildup or low water quality.
Will any equipment have to be left on site?
Yes. A trailer with a generator will be left nearby as well as hoses running to and from the pool. Typically, our pool service of reverse osmosis begins in the morning, let it run all day and night, and return to the pool the next morning to finish the process and pick up the equipment.
