Pool maintenance procedures are scheduled daily, weekly, monthly, and even annually. Despite keeping up with minor regular maintenance work, however, some repairs and replacement jobs may only be successfully accomplished by professionals who provide commercial pool services.
Here are some common signs your pool needs professional help:
There are many reasons why your pool water would become unsanitary, and it usually has something to do with the pool equipment. The most common malfunctions have to do with:
- Sand Filters – Blocked sand filters need to be changed within three to five years. Otherwise, you may require the assistance of a pool repair specialist.
- Pool Pumps – Malfunctioning pool pumps fail to filter and circulate your pool’s water effectively. Watch out for odd noises or unexpected shutdowns.
- Pipework – Debris-clogged pipework decreases the amount of water able to flow through your filters, which will lead to cloudy waters and an overall dirty pool.
Blocked pipes prevent water from flowing to the pool heater. Moreover, malfunctioning controls stop water and airflow from circulating as required. Be sure to have a professional handle either issue as they can exacerbate one another and cause a bigger (and more expensive!) headache in the long run.
Eroded plaster surfaces may wear thin, crack, or peel off due to the continued use of harsh cleaning chemicals on them. This occurrence, also known as spalling, is usually caused by low calcium or PH levels. If this happens, you’re likely to find peeling plaster under your floating chlorinator.
Pebble surfaces are expected to last over 20 years. However, regular acid washes can loosen and dislodge them. The obvious color loss from your cement may also be the effect of bleaching over time. This is a good indication that it’s high time to resurface the lost pavement around your pool.
You could do a lot of DIY tricks to keep your pool well-maintained, but repairing broken lights should never be one of them. The risk of being electrocuted by a live wire in the water is too high to risk an amateur repair job. As soon as you notice a broken light, shut off your main electricity, drain the pool immediately, and close down your operations for the time being.
Salt, calcium, and copper can discolor your pool or turn it into a crystal deposit. These are also known as topical stains, and they stick to the plaster’s surface. To a certain extent, the discoloration can be cleaned using acid wash.
Meanwhile, small rust spots may start appearing from oxidizing tie wire or rebar. When left unattended, they could continue to spread and become more apparent. Cutting out and patching these areas may temporarily fix this issue, but having unmanageable rust stains and discolored stains generally means that your pool is due for resurfacing.
Concrete pools may develop cracks due to poor workmanship, uncompacted surrounding soil, and improper design and engineering. Additionally, cracks in the walls can lead to water leakages. They can worsen into issues like weakened and eroded soil around your pool.
