There are many tasks associated with pool ownership that you can easily fix or repair yourself. There are also some situations when you should definitely call a pool professional. Trying to fix some things will only lead to bigger and more expensive problems in the long run. Some of the situations you should leave to the professionals include the following.
Temperature changes can affect the water in your pool and can make the soil around it expand and contract. It can result in cracks in the walls or bottom of the pool. In some situations a crack can be repaired, but you may also need to have the entire pool resurfaced. If you have water levels that aren’t what they should be, the culprit could be a crack. Pools should be resurfaced every 3-7 years.
A defective or broken heater will leave you with a cold pool due to insufficient water flow. It can also interfere with the air flow required for the heater to function properly. If any of the controls aren’t functioning correctly, you’ll need the services of a pool professional.
The pool’s plumbing is not something you want to attempt to fix on your own. Pipes can be clogged with leaves and debris and a broken pipe may present as dirty water or the filter make not be working properly. It requires an assessment by a professional.
If your pool has lights and they stop working, call a pool professional immediately. Electricity and water is a recipe for disaster that can even turn deadly. Don’t let anyone in the pool until it’s been fixed by a pool expert.
You may notice the grout in your pool has been discolored and it’s more than just an aesthetic concern. Tiny particles of dirt, grim and debris can become lodged in grout. It can grow a variety of unsavory things in the pool and throw off your pH levels. You may need an acid cleaning that should only be performed by a pool professional.
