Common Equipment Problems For Fort Worth Pools
Just as it is with your vehicle, there are common pool equipment that needs repairs . Here are some things for you to watch out for:
A leaking pool skimmer – Take a look at the skimmer if the pool is leaking. The sidewall can crack due to freezing. They can commonly separate at junctions. Look at the skimmer to see if there is a crack with debris sucked into it.
A cracked filter tank – If you see leaks in the filter tank, you’re better off calling a Fort Worth pool equipment repair professional before examining it. The tank is pressurized so leaks can be dangerous. It may need to be replaced or if leaking through the belly band, the o-ring will need to be replaced.
The pool isn’t heating – The heating equipment may be unable to turn on because of a pressure switch trip. This is caused by a clogged impeller or dirty pool filter. The problem could also be with a fuse, gas valve, pilot, thermostat, circuit board, etc.
Swimming pool pump won’t work – The pump may need repairs or replacement. It also may be leaking. Check for leaks around the drain plug, lid, or pipe that flows water from the pump. There may be a clogged pump impeller which is common in spring. Does the motor sound different or did you notice the flow reducing? If so, this is likely the cause.
