Your Ft. Lauderdale swimming pool will likely need repairs at times, no matter how well you maintain it. Years of use by family and friends, extreme weather and harsh temperatures eventually take their toll on your pool.
Cracks are especially important to fix quickly. They worsen over time, resulting in increased damage that can compromise your pool’s structural integrity. Cracks also cause leaks, which waste water and your money.
If you live in Ft. Lauderdale or the surrounding area and need to have your pool inspected for cracks, you can trust Somar Pools’ highly-experienced staff to accurately pinpoint the source and repair it quickly.
Clues That Your Ft. Lauderdale Pool Has a Leak
It can be challenging to know if your pool is leaking. Cracks can happen anywhere and be very small. You may only realize there is a problem because you have been adding more water to the pool than usual, or your water bill has increased.
However, there are other common symptoms to clue you in that it’s time to call your Ft. Lauderdale pool maintenance professional. These include:
Water level. If your pool’s water level drops faster and lower than what is to be expected from evaporation and splashing, then it has a leak.
Wet yard areas due to rusting pipes. You may have a plumbing leak underground if there are soft, wet spots in your yard or uneven grass growth.
Cracked or falling tiles and cracks in your pool deck. The water escaping the pool from a crack makes the surrounding land unstable, resulting in damage if the pool sinks into the softened ground. Plumbing leaks are harder to find, but Somar Pools, servicing the greater Ft. Lauderdale area, can find any leak anywhere using underground listening devices and proprietary methods to pressure test the lines.
Equipment leaks. You have a leak if there is corrosion or standing water around equipment like the pump.
Algae or discoloration. If you add more water to the pool than usual, it leads to fluctuating chemical consumption, resulting in algae growth.
