As a pool owner, you want to make sure that you are well versed on the various signs of pool problems. This way, you can have those issues addressed quickly. The longer you wait to have the problems dealt with, the more likely it is that you are going to find your swimming season cut short. To prevent that from happening, you will want to be on the lookout for the following things.
Water Loss That You Cannot Explain
It is easy to tell you have a problem if you see water pouring out onto your property. However, water loss problems are not always that apparent. It may happen gradually enough to the point that the area surrounding the pool does not look extra wet. The thing is though, if you are paying attention, you might notice that there is more water loss than there should be from normal evaporation. If you are noticing this, it is time to call in a pool contractor, as you could have a leak in the walls or from the plumbing system.
Cracks In The Plaster
While it is not uncommon for cracks to appear in the plaster of a pool, it is not something that you can ignore. You will need to quickly call in an expert that is experienced in pool plastering. The longer you wait, the worse the problem will become, which means it will take a lot more time and effort for the pool to be repaired. Also, you do not want to find yourself swimming in water that has small chunks of plaster in it. Simply call in the experts so they can drain your pool and add new plaster. While they are there, you could always have them check the other sections of the pool to see if there are any other areas that could benefit from new plaster. This way, you will be less likely to have to empty the pool again later in the year.
If you have a pool with a heating system, but have found that the pool is not staying consistently warm, you have a problem that needs to be addressed by a professional. There could be something that is blocking the air flow, so that needs to be addressed before the heater completely shuts down on you. If that happens, you will be stuck with cold water to swim in and you may have to purchase a brand new pool heater.
Should you notice any of those problems, or others that concern you, you will want to get in contact with a reputable pool contractor like Heritage Pool Plastering, Inc.
