5 Pool Repairs You Need to Complete Before Summer
Prepare Your Pool for Summer with Expert Help
While there are certain pool cleaning and maintenance tasks that homeowners can handle on their own, utilizing your local full-service pool shop is a great way to make sure everything is set for the busy summer months. From offering the best pool products around to convenient cleaning services that fit your schedule, Aqua Spas & Pools has got you covered!
1. Drain Your Pool Cover
Winterizing your pool is a smart way to keep your pool protected when it is not in use. Unfortunately, that also means you’ll need to drain as much water from your winter cover or safety cover before attempting to remove it. You can do this with a submersible pump or leave the task to one of the experienced technicians at Aqua Spas and Pools.
2. Replace Pool Liner
Pool liners should last for about 8 to 12 years, but it is always a good idea to check them when reopening your pool for the summer. If you see any cracks, deterioration, fading, stains or wrinkles in the liner, you may need to repair or replace it before the busy summer months.
3. Resurface Pool
No one wants to get their pool all ready for the summer only to find out that it is leaking. This can be dangerous and very unattractive if it is left unchanged. Due to chemical wear and tear, your pool finish can become scarred over time. If you think it is time to resurface your pool, give us a call and we can help you through the process.
4. Reconnect Equipment
After the long winter, you’ll need to make sure all of your pool equipment is working properly before filling it back up with water. Before you get things back up and running, take the time to inspect your pool filter, pump, heater and any other major pieces of equipment.
5. Test Your Pool Chemistry
Once you’ve got everything reconnected and have filled the pool with water, you’ll need to get your chemical levels in order. After the circulation system has run for several hours, take the time to test the pool water for pH. We offer easy to use testing kits at our full-service store and we can give you tips on how to use them properly.
