Vinyl Pool Liner Issues
To avoid digging up their backyard or financing a major plumbing project, many families choose to purchase an above-ground pool. This is relatively easier than choosing an in-ground pool. A standard construction method is to line a reinforced excavation with a heavy-duty vinyl liner.
Any small leaks need to be fixed by a pool maintenance service with experience in vinyl pool repair. Small pinholes usually grow into bigger holes and should be addressed immediately. Vinyl patches are used to mend a damaged liner, as are techniques to warm, stretch and re-attach a liner that has come loose from the coping around the top edge of the pool.
Fiberglass Pool Repair
A damaged fiberglass pool is also possible to renovate. Using fiberglass fabric brushed with sticky resin we apply layer upon layer. Many small cracks and holes can be fixed in a fiberglass pool shell.
For more serious fiberglass damage, a craftsman will use special cutting tools, cement, putty, and fiberglass paint. After the applied resin compounds harden, the craftsman will finish by grinding or sanding the affected areas for a smooth finish.
Concrete Pool Repair
Chips or stones create a variety of safety hazards in a concrete pool. They also cause damage to the pool’s surface. Loose tiles or uneven surfaces are not only unsightly but are unsafe as well.
Concrete pool repair techniques restore the luster and integrity of many damaged surfaces. Cracks that are promptly fixed also help prevent more costly problems in the future. Special adhesives and fillers are generally used to repair concrete pools.
Evaporation typically creates a modest amount of water loss, even in something as significant as a swimming pool. During extreme weather conditions, pool owners may notice reduced water levels. Sometimes, they incorrectly conclude that there is a leak in the plumbing, when all they need to do is add more water to the pool.
Occasionally, though, they may be correct in spotting a leak or mechanical malfunction.
Hiring a licensed plumbing professional can help prevent a pool owner from paying unnecessary expenses, such as digging up underground pipes on a hunch. A plumber should be able to use specific modern listening devices to accurately determine whether a pool leak exists.
Maintaining a sparkling clean swimming pool is much easier with a high-quality filtration system. Pool owners who use a good filter system can safely remove debris, bacteria and other unwanted additions to the water.
Using different chemicals within a filter system to treat any bacteria present generally reduces the time that a pool owner needs to allocate toward cleaning their swimming pool.
Waterfalls and fountains are used to accentuate the ambiance of an in-ground pool. A variety of lights can highlight the appearance of a waterfall or a fountain. With a few carefully chosen water features, a residential pool owner is now able to create a home spa and water entertainment facility to rival any public water park.
