How can I tell if my pool has a leak?
Your pool will naturally lose about a quarter of an inch of water per week because of evaporation. If you notice your water level falling more quickly than that, perform this test:
- Add water to your pool until it reaches the normal level, which should be to the middle of your skimmer.
- Put a bucket on your pool’s first or second step.
- Fill the bucket so that the water level inside and outside of the bucket are equal.
- Use a permanent marker to indicate where the water level should be inside of the bucket.
- Turn off your pump and place another mark on the outside of your bucket, along the water line.
- Turn your pump back on and wait 24 to 48 hours.
If the water level recedes along the outside of the bucket, you probably have a leak that requires the help of a professional.
Why is my pool pump so noisy?
Your pool pump plays an important role by circulating water through your filter and removing dirt and other types of debris. Although your pump isn’t completely silent, you may need to take a closer look if it suddenly begins to become louder. If your motor’s base is vibrating, try tightening the bolts holding the pump to see if that helps. You may want to add a rubber pad between the motor and the concrete pad to absorb any noisy vibrations coming from where these two parts meet. If neither of those fixes helps, make sure that large items aren’t wedged into your skimmer basket and that your pump strainer basket isn’t clogged with debris. If you continue to experience noise problems, call in a pro to investigate the issue further.
When should I consider replacing my pool equipment?
We create our pool cleaning schedules based on the availability of our specialists to serve different parts of the Houston area each day. We do everything we can to try to accommodate any schedule changes requested by our customers.
Why is my pool water green or cloudy?
The color of your water can indicate you have a problem with your pool’s mechanical systems. Pool owners should first check to make sure that water is circulating properly and that pool chemicals are at manufacturer-recommended levels. Water clarifiers and enzyme digesters can help clear debris from your pool, which can help restore your pool’s color and improve the clarity. You may need to administer a shock treatment to reduce mineral buildup and to get your pool back into balance. If your pool keeps giving you trouble, you may need to have a professional evaluate what might be happening.
Can you repair my pool’s plaster?
Over time, your plaster will begin to crack and chip. Since pool plaster helps protect your pool against leaks, you’ll want to address any plaster problems sooner rather than later. Depending on the extent of the problem, you may need to drain the pool, and in some cases it makes more sense to replaster the entire pool than to just address one area. ABC can help with your pool replastering and even help you remodel your pool.
What should I do to get my pool ready for warmer weather?
There are a number of things you’ll need to do to get your pool ready for swimming season. First, you’ll want to check your pumps to make sure they are priming, have no leaks and aren’t making excessive noise. Then, you’ll want to inspect your pool cleaner, skimmer baskets and your pool heater. You’ll also want to make sure your lights and electrical components are all working properly. After you test your pool’s chemicals to make sure they are all at recommended levels, you’ll want to perform safety checks to make sure your visitors will enjoy their time poolside without any hazards.
