Dangers of Draining A Swimming Pool in Tucson
There are many dangers when it comes to draining a swimming pool in Tucson especially when the temperature is above 80 degrees! Most residential and commercial swimming pool owners will drain a swimming pool because of high Calcium Hardness, Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), and Cyanuric Acid (CYA) levels. When it comes to draining a swimming pool, there are many risks involved and the following are the most common:
- In ground concrete pools are structurally built to withstand the weight of the water pushing outward on the shell, and that water weight helps keep the shell in the ground. However, if the groundwater is high enough, it can actually push the entire pool out of the ground. Once a pool has popped out of the ground it can’t go back down!
- In ground concrete swimming pool finishes (plaster) can also crack when the temperature is above 80 degrees and the surface of the swimming pool doesn’t remain wet. Swimming pool plaster has been wet since the day it was installed (it cures underwater) and contracts when the water is taken away. Once this finish rehydrates, it expands and the risk of delamination occurs.
- If you happen to own a vinyl or fiberglass pool the risks increase even more
Draining a swimming pool is a huge waste of water and something that isn’t necessary. By recycling your pool water using our Reverse Osmosis (RO) mobile filtration instead you take the above dangers out of the equation.
