Keeping Your Pool Gorgeous

After we purchased a home with a swimming pool, we figured that we would be spending our summers lounging in our cool, backyard oasis. However, after trying for a few weeks to keep it clean and sanitary, we realized that pool ownership was more difficult than we originally anticipated. We found ourselves struggling to keep bugs out of the space and trying to troubleshoot problematic filters. Fortunately, through a long period of trial and error, we were able to solve several of our issues. This blog is made especially for people who own pools, so that you can learn how to keep your pool gorgeous and healthy.

4 Pool Problems That Could Set Back Opening And Will Need To Be Repaired Now

Before you get ready to open your pool for the summer months, there is some maintenance that needs to be done. This maintenance also includes repairs due to damage caused by winter weather and wear. The following tips will help you with the repairs that need to be done before you can open your pool this year.

1. Freeze Damage Causing Leaks in Liners and Pool Plumbing

Winter freezing can cause serious damage to your pool. The problem may be something obvious, such as damaged liners and covers, or less noticeable problems. You will also want to check the plumbing for problems like burst pipes and damage to the pool pump equipment before you get ready to open your pool for the hot summer months.

2. Damage to Pump and Pool Filter Causing Problems with Your Pool

The pump and filtration equipment are some of the most important and vulnerable components of your pool. Before you open your pool, you will want to backwash the filter and test equipment to make sure that there is no winter damage. If the equipment has been damaged, you will need to repair the filter and pump, and you may want to consider upgrades to improve water quality and make maintenance easier.

3. Tiles, Coping and Pool Deck Surfaces That Are Susceptible to Wear and Tear

Some of the damage that you want to have repaired before opening may be due to wear and tear. The coping around the edges of the pool can come loose and cause problems, which will need to be repaired before you start swimming. In addition, you will want to repair the pool surface and any tile in or around the pool.

4. Hidden Leaks Due to Tears in Liners and Other Problems

There are many causes of wear that you will want to be aware of with your pool liner or surfaces like tile. These areas can develop leaks that cause problems with a lowering pool water level, as well as make it difficult to do maintenance throughout the summer season. If you have a problem with leaks, you will want to have them repaired before you open your pool.

These are some tips that will help you with the repairs that need to be done before you can open your pool. To get your pool ready in time for the summer swimming season, contact a pool repair service, like Clear Pools Maintenance Inc., for help.
