Do You Need a Pool Renovation?
Is your pool showing its age? Even a well-maintained pool will need renovating eventually. There are certain inevitable damages and maintenance issues that your pool will suffer from over time. Some problems can be spotted quickly, while others may take longer to notice and might be more expensive to repair. The following is a list of common pool problems that might indicate the need for a pool renovation.
- Cloudy or green water: This could be due to either a pool leak, algae growth on the bottom of the pool, or improper cleaning of the pool. Poor drainage and collection of dirt or leaves from overhead trees is another possible reason for cloudy water. To fix this problem, first determine the cause or causes and address each one. For leaks, professional help will be required to fix it as soon as possible.
- Water level decreasing: This indicates a leak in your pool or in the drainage system. Leaks will only get worse over time. The longer a leak is left unaddressed, the more expensive the renovations will be.
- Noisy motor: Different motor sounds may be indicative of different problems. Worn bearings, for example, will cause a squealing noise in the motor. In order to keep the motor fully functional, it is a good idea to do regular maintenance checks. If the bearings do become worn, however, the renovations or replacements will be difficult and costly.
- Gargling noises: If there are unusual sounds coming from your pool that are not mechanical or generated by the motor, they might be indicative of a leak. Water escaping from the pool may cause unusual sounds that can be an early warning to the homeowner.
- Cracks in the pool deck: Cracks in the deck may be caused by pool leaks, and cracks in the bottom or sides of the pool could be where the water is leaking from. While cracks do not necessarily signal a problem, they should be monitored and checked by professionals to determine their severity.
