Your pool brings all kinds of joy to you, your family, and your friends. It also brings heavy responsibility! As you likely know, there is a lot of maintenance associated with pool ownership. Aside from those regular seasonal maintenance things, sometimes you must deal with more serious issues.
These are the kinds of things that require actual repairs and will probably require you to call in a professional to help fix the actual structure or mechanisms that make your pool what it is. If you’re concerned about pool repairs or think you may need one, read on to see some common problems.
Pool Wall Cracks
Most commonly, we see pool cracks that require pool repairs in inground swimming pools. They can be caused by harsh weather conditions, so if a huge storm blows through your property, you may want to inspect your pool to make sure there aren’t any cracks. Don’t freak out if there are though. This common issue is easily repaired, resurfaced, and enjoyed for increased durability that should last.
Pump Motor Issues
So many calls we get from inground pool owners are related to their pump motor. Unlike most of your pool, the motor is an intricate, delicate machine that has so many moving parts susceptible to breaking down. Unfortunately, some pool owners don’t even realize that their water quality has been compromised by a broken pool pump motor. When it comes to pool repairs, this one’s common—but easily fixed by a pro like us at Admiral Pools.
Your Pool Filter
If you aren’t changing your filter regularly, it is likely to develop problems and start to malfunction. If this happens, you should either give it a deep clean or even replace the cartridge outright. Don’t neglect your pool filter, it’s more important than you think!
Faulty Pool Lights
Think about how often you change the lightbulbs in your home. If you’re not changing your pool lights as often as that, you may encounter issues! However, if you have LED lights or have tried swapping lightbulbs, there may be problems that go beyond bulb replacement that require a pool repair professional to step in.
Nonfunctioning Pool Heater
Your pool heater allows you to squeeze extra use out of your pool even once it begins to get colder outside. However, they do require a bit to keep functioning and can be complicated pieces of equipment. This isn’t something to DIY beyond trying manufacturer-recommended troubleshooting; if you have issues with your pool heater, let us know.
