Must-Do Pool Repairs Before QLD Summer Season Starts
Nothing beats cooling off in the pool on a hot summer day. Everyone with a pool of their own will benefit from a bit of preparation before the busy Summer season starts. If you’re not sure what swimming pool servicing or spa repairs are required for your backyard oasis, Billabong Pool Service & Supply can help. Check out our list of top pool repairs to get your pool in the best possible shape for Summer.
One of the most important pool repairs to prioritise in the leadup to Summer involves cleaning or replacing dirty filters. If your pool water looks a bit dirty, a simple filter clean should make a big difference. Remember that most cartridge, DE, or sand filters last for 7-10 years, so you will eventually need to switch them out. Spring is also a good time to consider investing in a Dolphin robotic pool cleaner to help with maintenance and keep your pool clean without you having to do much more than clean the filter after use.
Leaky Pump Pool Repairs
If you have a clogged or leaky pool pump, you will definitely need to get that fixed before summer. Springtime blossoms and shedding seeds are more likely to accumulate in your pool and potentially clog up the impeller in your pool pump. If you notice a drop in pump pressure and water flow, you should clear out as much debris as possible or call in a trusted pool repair team to take a closer look. Broken pump fittings and baskets can impact pool cleanliness and performance so you will want to get those checked out, too.
Skimmer leaks are responsible for many leaky pool problems. If you have a concrete pool, the skimmer may separate from the structure, while vinyl pool skimmers may suffer wear and tear over time. A dip in temperatures during the winter months could potentially cause cracks in the skimmer, too. The good news is these issues are quite easy and quick to fix when caught early by a professional pool repair company.
