Pools have a lot of moving parts that can face a lot of pressure. There are many things that can go wrong with your pool that may require pool service and repair. However, there are many kinds of pool service and repair, so it can be hard to know what you need and when. Here is a short list of 3 main times when you would need pool service and repair.
- Concrete Problems: When a pool is poured or painted, it may not last forever. Things like cracks or bulges in the walls of the pool can be very serious and should be dealt with immediately. If you are noticing cracks, divots, or wear on the walls of your pool you should call an expert immediately before it breaks further.
- Pump Problems: Pumps are a part that experiences a lot of strain, and a lot of strain means high chance of breaking. Often times the bearings will wear out and need to be replaced every so often, but sometimes the motor itself can give out. If there is a terrible whirring sound, or the pump is struggling to operate, call a technician immediately before more damage is done.
- Skimmers: Pool skimmers can get clogged or leak if not taken care of properly. While they don’t last forever, they should last a very long time. If your skimmer is clogged or leaking, call a technician to have them fix it before the issues become worse.
While pools seem like simple things, big holes with water in them, they can actually be quite finicky. Treat your pool well and it will last, but also watch for these signs of problems to get them fixed before they cost a lot of money.
