A swimming pool is a significant investment in your property. In order to protect that investment, you will want to keep your pool in tip-top condition. One of the best ways to do that is to maintain the pool equipment. Keep your pool equipment in good shape by following these tips.
There is very little work involved in maintaining the pool pump. Regularly, maybe weekly, clean out the strainer basket. While you are doing that, check the gaskets and rings for wear and tear, for drying, and for leaks. Any time you find a leak in the pool pump, contact Tropic Island Pools’ service team.
The pool filter, whether cartridge, sand, or DE, does require regular maintenance. Cleaning the filter helps keep the pool water clean and clear. How frequently you clean the filter will depend on the type of filter you have. If you aren’t confident about cleaning the filter, call on Tropic Island Pools. Remember, though, that a slightly dirty filter actually works better than a super clean one.
The pool heater requires the least maintenance from the pool owner. Schedule an annual appointment with Tropic Island Pools to ensure consistent results from the pool heater.
Every once in a while, take a quick trip around the light perimeter. Gently tap each light fixture to make sure that it is solidly set in the niche. If the light shakes or wiggles in its niche, simply tighten the single screw (usually a Phillips-head) at the top of the fixture.
Changing the bulb is a fairly easy fix, as well, but if you are unsure about working with the electric appliance, please call your pool service technicians at Tropic Island Pools.
Sometimes, regardless of regular maintenance, things break. Even the best quality pool equipment is subject to wear and tear over time.
Any time your pool pump makes a noise, a humming or vibrating sound, you should call for a repair. If the pool water is looking murky even after you’ve cleaned the filters, you should call for a repair.
Call on Tropic Island Pools’ service and repair professional if your pool filter is no longer getting the water as clear as you would like, or if it begins to contribute to the vibrations in the pump.
The pool heater, especially a gas heater, can be a dangerous piece of pool equipment if it malfunctions or breaks. When the heater is not working as it should, the team at Tropic Island Pools.
Most swimming pools will require resurfacing every seven to ten years. This is almost guaranteed as a structural repair that can be completed by Tropic Island Pools.
You might consider a structural pool repair as an opportunity to remodel and improve your pool.
Pool structure repairs and remodels can range from changing out light fixtures to digging a new shape to adding a spa feature to revamping the patio and landscaping.
If your pool develops a leak in the structure, you might want to change out the pool decking. Changing the decking may be the solution to your structural damage as well as a change to increase the value of your pool. There is a dramatic difference between the old grey concrete decking and the new colored and stamped concrete. Changing just the decking can improve the look of your pool overall.
Take a long look at the big picture as you plan your structural pool repairs. As the pool is repaired, Tropic Island Pools can add features and designs that meet your desires and your budget.
Speaking of budget.
Pool structural repairs can cover a range of costs, $5000 to $70,000 for a full backyard rebuild.
Of course, the cost of your pool structural repair will depend on the scope of damage to the pool.
Pool structural repairs can be a frightening idea to consider. The experts at Tropic Island Pools can make it less intimidating as they walk you through the process.
