Well-maintained pool tiles can last up to 10 years before requiring re-tiling. However, It’s still possible that your pool floor, walls, or tiles will break during the length of your swimming pool’s existence.
Repairing a damaged pool is a straightforward task that can be easily completed by a trusted pool repair service provider. Weber Pools breaks down the procedures for mending cracks in the pool, along with what you can expect from a pool specialist.
How Pool Services Repair Your Residential Pool Tiles
Step 1: Drain
Draining the pool is the first stage in the swimming pool repair process. At this stage, pool specialists will turn off all of your equipment and start draining your pool with a submersible pump.
Step 2: Identify the Crack
At this stage, the pool specialist will identify the possible cracks. One of the simple processes of identifying the cracks includes placing a drop of dye in the water as close to the suspected break as possible. If the color goes towards the crack, it’s where the leak’s exact location.
Professional pool repair staff can detect the problem’s location with high-tech equipment such as specialized cameras and compressed air.
Step 3: Prep
The preparatory phase of the pool repair process involves professional sandblasting and multi-coating. This is the noisiest and dustiest stage of the process. The staff completely prepares the surface of your pool by removing any old, damaged surface material and preparing it to accept the new surface material of your choice.
Step 4: Tile and Masonry
This is the stage where highly qualified tile and masonry craftsmen install your pool tile, coping, and other aesthetic features like ledger stone. This procedure can take anywhere from one to three days to complete.
Step 5: Sealing
The fourth step is the sealing to guarantee that your pool is watertight and ready for the pool surface finish of your choice. At this time, pool experts will also clean your pool shell.
Step 6: Pool Finish Material Installation
The installation of the pool surface finish material you chose is the fifth phase. Your newly repaired swimming pool is starting to take shape at this point. Depending on the materials you choose, this could take any time from one to two days.
Step 7: Acid Wash (optional depending on finish material)
If you choose a pebble or darker quartz finish, pool experts will add the optional seventh step of an acid wash which is a required part of the procedure. Pool experts are highly trained and skilled, and they can do this procedure quickly and safely.
Step 8: Cleanup and Pool Fill
Pool experts will finish the basic clean-up and begin filling your pool once the requested material has been installed and acid cleansed, if necessary. It is recommended that all homes monitor the water level as it rises and switches off the water once it reaches the center of the waterline tile.
Step 9: Initial Water Treatment/Surface Curing
The final phase in the pool resurfacing process is known as Initial Water Treatment, is one of the most crucial processes to ensure that your new pool surface material maintains its appearance and longevity.
During the first seven days of the curing process, this technique necessitates regular monitoring and service. This important task is required to complete by your trusted pool service provider.
