If you have a pool in your backyard, you know how tiring it is to keep it algae free before breaking down and draining and refilling your pool.
But did you know there’s an easy way to reuse the water that’s already in the pool? All you have to do is recycle it!
Meet reverse osmosis — the best way to purify your swimming pool water. It works by pushing the existing water through semipermeable membranes that hold off any impurities, particles, and buildup.
RO is primarily used to purify drinking water. However, the same technology can now be applied to larger bodies of water, like swimming pools.
In Arizona and Maricopa County, where droughts are common, water conservation is crucial. Draining and refilling an entire pool would unnecessarily waste thousands and gallons of water. Why not try RO as a way to reuse your pool water?
Keep reading to learn more about it and how you can use it for your own pool.
What is reverse osmosis?
Both public and home pools must be sanitized before use to destroy any bacteria, microbes and other potential contaminants. This is done by filtering, chlorinating, and maintaining the pH level of the water.
Over time, pool water also gets a calcium buildup that can create unsightly scale marks on the inner sides of the pool.
This is where reverse osmosis comes into play. It’s essentially the same process used to filter and purify drinking water. It also turns salty seawater into fresh water that is suitable for drinking.
The main goal of RO is to lower the impurities in your water to a safe level so that you can reuse it again and again.
The RO system uses high pressure to push the water through a fine semipermeable membrane that’s strong enough to retain salt, cyanuric acid, calcium and other toxins. This system allows for the clean water to return to the pool. Then, the dirty water is pumped out.
How can you use RO for your pool?
By now, you’re probably intrigued by this incredible innovation and want to know how to use it for your own pool.
We at Clear Canyon Water Renewal use the reverse osmosis process technology.
Our convenient self-contained trailer will do all the work, while you sit back, relax and watch your pool being prepared for swimming again.
The RO takes less than a day depending on the pool size. While a small amount of water may be wasted during the process, it’s far less than draining and filling your pool.
But at the end, you’ll have perfectly clean and clear water with no nasty toxins or buildup.
Water conservation is extremely important, especially in states like Arizona affected by droughts.
Some states have imposed certain restrictions on pool owners aimed at preventing water waste from pools. Some of these restrictions include recycling instead of draining.
Reverse osmosis is a great way to enjoy your pool with clean water without having to drain, refill and waste it.
