Common Pool Equipment Issues

If you and your family love to spend time by your pool, it’s critical that your pool remains in an inviting condition. Maintaining your pool equipment is just as important as routine cleanings. The machinery used to keep your pool safe, and fun requires special maintenance to remain efficient and functional. When you notice any pool equipment, such as heaters, pumps, motors, and lights, start to have issues, don’t hesitate to call our professional pool equipment repair specialists. Here is a closer look at some of the more common pool equipment issues:

  • Failing Pool Pump – The pool pump is designed to circulate and filter all the water used. When your pump starts to malfunction or break down, your pool water will quickly become dirty and miscolored. The cause is most often a loose connection. Our technicians will be able to check all the connections and the power source to ensure everything is as it should be.
  • Pool Water Filtration – Your pool pump also plays a vital role in filtration. When you start to notice more leaves, debris, algae, or dirt in your pool, you may be dealing with a filtration issue. We can replace your filtration cartridge, which should help restore your system to brand new.
  • Broken Pool Heater – Being able to swim all year round is thanks to your pool heater. When your heater breaks, it may be too cold to swim comfortably. The complication can be as simple as the thermostat. By resetting your thermostat, your heater may return the pool to a nice comfortable temperature.
  • Pool Lights – Over time, you may notice your pool lights starting to flicker, dim, or completely shut down. It’s possible water got into the fixture through a faulty rubber seal, and if the fixture floods, your entire pool must be drained to repair it. Our team can offer you quick and efficient insight into what’s causing your issue and hopefully be able to save you time and money.

Repairing Your Equipment Vs. Replacing

Determining when you should be repairing your equipment versus replacing it can be challenging. Unfortunately, there isn’t a one size fits all answer. Your pool equipment is the driving force behind a healthy and safe swimming pool. It’s always best to be proactive regarding routine maintenance, repairs, and replacements. Our pool equipment repair service can help you get the most out of your expensive equipment. Yet, several factors go into choosing to repair or replace your equipment, such as the equipment’s age, workload, use hours, maintenance frequency, and more. When you call our professionals, we’ll give you advice based on our inspection of the equipment in question. Here are some reasons our team may recommend replacing equipment instead of expensive repairs:

  • Cost of Repairs – As the machinery ages, there will come a point where the cost of consistent maintenance will be more than the price of buying a brand-new unit. We’ll work with you to find new pool equipment within your budget and ensure you get the best deal possible.
  • Age of the Equipment – The machinery you use will eventually become outdated and discontinued. As time passes, finding replacement parts needed to maintain routine repairs will get more challenging and expensive. Most pool equipment has a lifespan between 10 and 20 years, with proper maintenance, repair, and servicing.
  • Efficiency – Like vehicles, the newer models offer better efficiency each year and are better at conserving water and energy. Outdated equipment can cause you to spend more money on your energy bill than a newer model.

Upgrading Your Pool Equipment

If you decide to replace your pool equipment, we’ve compiled a list of some of the newest and best upgrades designed to increase efficiency or make your pool the envy of your neighborhood. These upgrades can ensure your swimming pool runs smoother than ever while improving your home’s value and curb appeal. Here are our recommendations for upgraded pool equipment:

  • Energy Efficient Variable Speed Pool Pump – This upgrade can help reduce your pool’s energy use. The variable pump, if properly used, can provide up to a 90% reduction in energy use. It allows you to save money while enjoying your pool without a difference in comfort.
  • Color LED or Fiber Optic Pool Lights – New color LED and fiber optic lights can be inserted directly into your pool’s floor or wall, allowing the entire body of water to glow. These new lights increase the overall value of your pool and enhance the practical use of outdoor living space, allowing you to swim after the sun’s down. For our energy-conscious customers, LEDs are energy efficient.
  • Upgraded Pool Heater – Newer models are more efficient but are built to significantly reduce future rust issues. Some pool heaters come equipped with automatic bypass options, which can bypass the heat exchanged while reducing energy use when not being used.
  • Electronic Auto Fills – A new system to ensure your pool’s water level never drops below a certain point. Not enough water can result in your pumps and filters not working correctly, leading to costly pool equipment repairs. The system will automatically fill your pool and keep it at a certain level, removing one more thing you must worry about.
