Pool Leak Detection
While some water loss is normal and caused by evaporation, don’t ignore pool leaks. If you are losing more water than usual, it is time to call a professional for pool leak detection. The sooner you address a leak, the less it will cost you in utilities and landscaping costs.
Depending on the location and type of leak, professionals can use a variety of methods to pinpoint the source. A common type of leak is in the underground plumbing, and these can go unnoticed for a long period of time. These types of leaks are costly to repair and can be a sign of more serious problems on your property.
A simple test for a leak in the pool plumbing is to drop some dye near the suspected area while the pump is off and the water is still. If the dye moves toward the leak, this is a good indication that the problem is in that area.
Pool Pump Repair
The pool pump is the center of your filtration system, creating the flow that allows chemicals to circulate and sanitize your water. It is crucial for your pool’s health and clarity! If your pool pump is making loud noises or not working, it is time to call for repairs.
A humming or whirring noise from your pump is typically caused by the bearings wearing out. These can be replaced and are fairly inexpensive to do so. It is important that these are addressed quickly as they can cause other problems.
