    Due to Calcium Buildup



As you know, over time, calcium levels in your pool accumulate, and the water becomes "harder".

Hard pool water can cause skin rash. It can be described as a group of spotted, pink or red skin marks that may be accompanied by itching. Hard water occurs when a water supply contains high mineral levels of iron, magnesium and calcium, which leave deposits on the body causing irritation.

What are hard water skin rash common symptoms?

The most common symptoms that come with hard water skin rash are:

  • Itching
  • Reddened bumps on the skin
  • Dryness
  • Flaking
  • Lesions
  • Scaling
  • Warmth of affected area
  • Weeping (oozing)

How is it caused?

The primary cause of hard water rash is dry skin. Minerals make it more difficult for substances to dissolve in water such as soap. When you lather and then rinse off, you may not be removing all the soap from your skin, this will cause the skin to dry out. Hard water deposits left on the skin can also cause your skin to become more irritated and susceptible to damage.

How can Hard Water Rash be prevented?

As a result of calcium and other undesirable mineral and organic residue buildup, the only available solution to prevent hard water skin rash until now was to completely drain the pool and re-fill it. Thousands of gallons of water, completely wasted. Now, this can be accomplished with a full water softening process:

  • Rob's Pool Water Recycling has specially designed "reverse osmosis" equipment installed in a mobile trailer It takes the water from your pool and makes it pass under high pressure through a series of membranes that extract all unwanted mineral and organic content.The water is sent back to the pool, in purified state. You can even take a glass and drink it!
  • The water in a typical size pool is completely renewed between 12 and 24 hours.

Swimming Pool Rash

Another form of skin problem that is attributable to pool water conditions is swimming pool rash - a recreational pool illness. A swimming pool rash will occur 12 to 48 hours after exposure to the pseudomonas bacteria found in swimming pools when the disinfectants break down, causing bacterial growth.

Symptoms Symptoms of swimming pool rash include: an itchy rash that might have blisters, occurring up to 48 hours after exposure to the pseudomonas bacteria. These itchy skin rashes might have small red bumps. This rash might appear all over the body, or only on the arms, legs or the trunk of the body and might look similar to chicken pox.

Dermatitis and Hard Pool Water

Hard water can be especially irritating to those who already suffer from a skin condition like dermatitis. Dermatitis is an inflammation of the skin, and outbreaks are more common when one suffers from persistently dry skin. While hard water itself doesn't cause dermatitis, it can irritate the condition or even initiate a flare-up. One of the most common effects of hard water is its ability to dry out the skin and leave it unable to absorb moisture. The combination of hard water with a co-existing dermatitis condition can lead to more frequent and severe outbreaks.

Pool water causing dry skin, worsening psoriasis and eczema


Dry skin is one of the most common problems of prolonged exposure of hard water. When the water comes in contact with a person's skin, a small portion of the minerals are left behind. These deposits can leach the moisture and natural oils from the skin.

People with sensitive skin or skin conditions will also often have problems when they are exposed to hard water. Psoriasis and eczema sufferers, for instance, will often experience more dryness and irritation after being exposed to hard water.

If hard water is the cause of frequent skin problems, avoiding the offending water is often necessary to help clear the skin up.

This is quite simple to fix with our Reverse Osmosis Pool Water Filtration service. In 12-24 hours your pool water can be completely softened without having to drain it or adding lots of chemicals to it.
