Why you Shouldn’t Ignore a Pool Leak

A pool leak is never good news and if the escaping water is a small amount, you may be tempted to think it’s just a normal decrease in the pool level and add water. While water levels will decrease over time, they’re typically very gradual. Having the services of a pool professional isn’t a luxury in these situations – it’s a necessity. The professionals will be able to identify potential problem areas before they become critical.

Expense

A small leak today can cost you much more to repair in the future and you may even have to replace the entire pool. Leaks only get worse and you may find that it has undermined the surrounding soil, necessitating emergency landscaping.

The need to add water will also increase your utility bills and you’ll be spending more on pool chemicals to maintain the appropriate pH levels. Leaks can also corrode pipes, damage filtering systems, and cause the underlying soil to shift that can lead to pipe breakage.

Property Damage

Even if you have the leak repaired relatively quickly, a significant amount of water may have already escaped. Depending on the local terrain, it may be flooding other areas or pooling underground. You could find yourself paying for damage done to surrounding properties and local fines. Pooling water can also result in muddy areas that increase the risk of slip and fall accidents on the property.

Environmental

The water in your pool is a mix of chemicals that can harm the environment. Pool water can kill fish and wildlife, damage habitats and native species, and leads to the production of greenhouse gases. Depending upon the chemical composition, it can affect algae blooms.

Hire a Professional

Even if you don’t have a pool professional perform regular maintenance on your pool, it’s a good idea to have your pool checked at least once a year by specialists. They’ll have the technology to go over your pool inch-by-inch to identify any existing leaks or areas that can present a problem in the future. They’ll also have the expertise to repair the damage.

Pool Lighting

Backyard Nightlife: Why LED Lights are Awesome

Lighting for the backyard is one of the most often overlooked features for safety and entertaining – and it can be one of the most frustrating. The lighting provides a warm and inviting atmosphere for sharing good times with family and friends, but can also attract unwanted insect pests. LED lighting technology provides a myriad of illumination advantages over traditional bulbs and an LED alternative exists for every type of existing fixture.

Saving Money

One of the biggest attractions of LED lights is that they’re much cheaper to operate than traditional bulbs. They’re 80 percent more efficient and don’t use as much electricity.

Versatility

LED lights are available in multiple colors, allowing homeowners to customize their backyard decorating and take control of their illumination solutions in any situation. They encompass the full light spectrum, enabling individuals to create distinctive looks for any themed event.

Longer Life

The average life span of LED lights is approximately seven years and the longevity can even extend up to 10 years or more, depending upon differences in usage. As a result, they require very minimal levels of maintenance. LED technology doesn’t use filaments and they’re not glass-based, making them more resistant to bumps, shocks, vibrations, and fluctuations in temperatures.

Safety

LEDs produce more light with fewer fixtures than traditional bulbs and provide greater visibility for family members and guests. They can significantly reduce the potential for trip and fall accidents. They emit a fraction of the heat of ordinary light bulbs and remain cool to the touch, meaning they can be used in areas where children and pets frequent.

Eco-Friendly

Aside from using less power to operate, LEDs minimize light pollution. They cast illumination specifically where they’re directed without “bleeding” out into adjoining areas. LED lights can be recycled and don’t contain toxic components such as mercury.

Fewer Insects

One of the great things about LED lights is that they don’t emit the type of UV light that insects find attractive so there will be fewer bugs fluttering around – and everyone wants that!

7 Reasons to Hire a Pool Maintenance Company

A swimming pool is a lot of fun. It can also require a significant amount of time on your part for maintenance. If you’re unfamiliar with the type of chemicals it needs, when to apply them and appropriate amount, you can end up damaging the pool and making it unusable. There are multiple reasons why homeowners should hire a professional pool maintenance company that include the following.

Saving Time

For those that travel frequently, have children, and other pressing obligations, finding the time to use the pool can be a problem, let alone cleaning and maintaining it. A professional pool maintenance company can perform all the tasks needed in a fraction of the time required by the average homeowner.

Expert Knowledge

A pool maintenance company has the specialized knowledge required to perform a variety of tests on the pool water and apply the correct chemicals at the optimal time to maintain pH levels, minimize the growth of algae, and keep water sparkling bright.

Regular Maintenance Schedule

A pool maintenance company will do more than simply clean the pool and apply chemicals. The company will place the pool on a regular schedule of maintenance to head off situations before they can become problems.

Comprehensive Inspections

Older pools can develop hairline cracks, chips, and other defects. A pool maintenance company will inspect the floor and walls of the pool during maintenance procedures.

Pool Repairs

If a defect or crack is found during an inspection, pool professionals are able to provide the complex and complicated repair services or complete resurfacing if needed. They’re also experienced in the repair and replacement of pool pumps, filters, heaters, and plumbing.

Customized Service

Services can be customized to the desires and individual needs of the homeowner. All pools aren’t the same, nor do they require the same services on the same schedule.

Peace of Mind

Nothing can compare with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that the pool is always in optimal condition and ready to use.
