Pool Repair: What Should You Look For To Fix Issues

Pool repair is often a nightmare for pool owners. They find themselves in the water on their phone, trying to figure out what to do next. They have no idea where to turn. It's an unpleasant process for sure, but the following information can help you find issues with your pool and have them repaired. 

Having Trouble With the Water Pump  

If there is something wrong with your pool's pump, the first thing that you need to do is check for any signs of leaky pipes or fittings. The most common problem is that there is no flow through the system. If there is no flow through the system, then this could mean that there are broken pipes or fittings somewhere in your system. Make sure that all of these are in good condition before proceeding further.

Another common problem when having trouble with your pool pump is that there is too much friction within the system due to worn parts or debris inside of them or around them, which causes them to overheat while they are running. When this happens, it can cause damage to other parts within the system, such as seals and bearings, which can lead to increased costs later on down the road if you don't catch it early enough before major damage occurs.

A Cracked Pump Basket 

A cracked pump basket is a common issue in pool pumps. This is usually the result of excessive wear and tear. This problem can cause the impeller to come loose and break, which will lead to serious damage to your pump if not fixed immediately.

When you notice that your pump basket has started to crack, you will need to replace it immediately. If left untreated, the cracks will eventually grow larger and cause other parts of your pump to break down. It is possible for the damage to spread throughout your entire system if you do not take immediate action.

Filter Problems

The filter system is one of the main components of your pool's water filtration system. It runs continuously and helps keep the water clean by filtering out dirt and debris. If it malfunctions, it can cause dirty water or even dangerous bacteria growth in your pool. You want to check the pressure gauge to see if there are any problems with the filtration system. If the pressure is too high, turn off the pump and check for blockages using a pool skimmer net or a small brush that is designed for this purpose.

Chlorine Level Is Off

Another issue that you might have to deal with is the chlorine levels being off. When the chlorine levels are off, this can cause serious problems. If you have a chlorine dispenser, it might need to be repaired or replaced. You might want to have one installed if you don't have one already. This will ensure the chlorine levels stay balanced and your pool is safe for swimming. 

The Pool is Leaking

Pool leaks can be another serious issue that you might have to deal with. Sometimes, the leaks might be due to a liner that needs to be patched or replaced. With plaster and tile pools, the leaks can be due to other issues like cracks in the surface. Issues with pool plumbing can also cause leaks and need to be repaired before they cause other problems.
