Living in Ft. Lauderdale means reasonably mild weather in winter and an extended pool season, but that doesn’t mean there’s no good window for downtime. Despite the short length and relatively warm weather during the Ft. Lauderdale winter, it’s by far the best time to repair a leaking pool, renovate one extensively or spring for a new installation.
Signs Your Ft. Lauderdale Pool is Leaking
Does it seem like your water bills are always going up, but the water level in your pool is always going down? If you’re replenishing water faster than normal, especially if you notice water standing in areas of your lawn or near pool equipment where it doesn’t normally accumulate, chances are good your pool is leaking.
While you may be willing to assume the added water costs to put off repair costs, this isn’t the best course of action for long. Over time, excessive moisture and evaporation creates an expansion and retraction cycle that can put strain on the overall pool structure. This can mean more extensive (and more expensive) repairs if the leak isn’t addressed, including damage to paving, decking or patio space around the perimeter of the pool.
Why Winter is the Perfect Time to Repair a Leaking Pool
Even though pool warmers make it easy to enjoy a Florida pool year-round, there are still times when lounging by the pool or in it are particularly appealing. When the summer sun begins to blaze and mercury begins to rise, you’ll want access to your own backyard oasis, but so will everyone else in the area. If you wait too long, you could find yourself near the back of a lengthy queue for repairs. The last thing you want is to spend the peak of the season looking out the window at a pool under construction, so it’s wise to move quickly.
