Pool owners notice when something is wrong with their pool or spas. Sometimes he ignores her, making the situation worse. Sometimes I don’t know what the problem might be. There are few clues that pool owners can find to decide when to repair the pool and spa.
Many things may need repairs in a pool if there are inconsistencies in the water’s behavior or the function of the pool. Pools may have a worn or broken pool liner, cracks in a concrete pool, deformed or cracked board, or loose pool tile or cover. The most common problems are found in a filter, heater, or pool pump that is not working correctly.
Pool problems can often be attributed to leaks. It is not uncommon to lose a quarter of a centimeter of pool water per day due to evaporation, which makes up to about two centimeters per week. If the pool loses more water than this, then a leak is probably part of the problem.
To find out if there is a leak in the pool:
- Fill the bucket with pool water.
- Place it on this pool’s steps with the bucket’s tip above the water level. The water in the bucket will remain at the same temperature as the pool.
- If there are no steps, balance the cup on the steps.
Connect the water loss in the bucket also the pool over several days. The more, the better. If the difference between water levels is more significant than the average water loss of two inches, then there is a leak in the pool.
To find the drain:
- Choose the pool to be expected and mark it with a pipe table.
- Wait for 12 to 24 hours to measure water loss with the filtration system running all the time.
- Fill the pool to the same level and repeat with the filtration system off.
If this pool loses more extra water with the filtration system running, the drain is on the plumbing pressure side that passes through the pump rotor. If you lose less water with the filter system not working, the drain is on the plumbing vacuum side before the rotor. If the water loss is the same, then the drain is in the basin’s structure and not in the sanitary installations.
Spas have inconsistencies that may not seem out of the ordinary, but they need repairs. If the water is cloudy or smelly, there are several causes. There may be excessive contamination, unbalanced water, a clogged or worn filter, or a low level of disinfectant. Each of these causes has a different repair solution, which professionals best remedy.
Excessive foaming in a spa is the result of high contamination or soap residue. If the water turns milky white from tiny bubbles when the jets are running, there may be build-up in the spa system, low water calcium hardness, or unbalanced water. Algae are the result of low levels of disinfectant and excessive contaminants.
Anybody’s irritation is a big problem, and homeowners should seek repair immediately. This could be caused by an incorrect level of disinfectant, pool and spa chlorinators, unbalanced water, accumulation of gases under cover of the spa, overdose of chlorine-free shock, contamination of the biofilm, and pseudomonas bacteria.
