The worst case scenario for all pool owners in the summer:
The pool needs an urgent repair!
Leaking skimmers are often the reason for a water loos in a pool and is big problem for any pool, since this can lead to a structural damage.
Lowering the water level to do a repair in dry conditions cost a lot of water and chemicals.
Loose or broken tiles are the main reason for cut feet in swimming pools, but emptying the whole pool in the middle of the summer is not an option but needs to be done, in conventional repairs, to prevent swimmers injuries.
Screws of drain covers, lights or ladders are getting lose and it is impossible to get them tightened.
Pool vinyl of above ground pools got damaged from pet’s ,lawn mowers etc. or the bottom seal got loose over time.
There are many reasons for pool repairs when the summer is in full swing and the pool can’t be emptied for commercial reasons, family peace and / or it is simply too expensive.
There are even countries where you have to apply for a permission to empty and fill a pool from the government and that takes time or get denied for reasons like drought, disposal of the water issues etc.
A repair underwater is the only solution to save the summer, but is there a way that underwater repairs in swimming pools last?
Due to the pool chemicals attacking the repair all the time even in a saltwater pools or with one of the new sanitising systems where it seems no one has experience if a repair would last.
The answer is yes!

First remove all water, leaves, and debris from your cover.
As soon as the water is off the cover, you can use a broom to sweep off any debris. Never use anything sharp or harsh on your cover.
You can also wait a day or two for the cover to dry and blow the debris off with a leaf blower, this is a very gently way to get it done.
Remove the cover without getting any debris, into the pool which may been left on the cover.
If dirty water or debris fall in the water, it’s not a big deal, you just have to remove it from the water later.
Lay the cover out on your lawn or a nearby area. Use water, soap, and a soft brush to wash your cover carefully.
You can also use cover washing liquid. Remove all the winter plugs from the openings in your pool, including return jets and step jets.
Than replace your return lines with proper eyeball or jet fittings.
Remove the ice compensator(s) from your skimmer bucket(s) (Gizmo) as well as the winter plugs from the bottom. Then, replace the skimmer baskets
if needed. Now you are ready to re-Install your deck Equipment after inspecting of it got damaged in the winter storage, remember to lubricate all bolts rusting throughout the summer months
can be prevented during the summer. Your pool might have lost or drained water during winterization. . If the water level in your pool is below the midway point of the skimmer opening, fill it up with your garden hose.
Replace the drain plugs and other parts, including your pressure gauge, on your filter and pump. Your filter should have one major drain plug and your pump may have one or two.
If you have a multiport valve, make sure you replace the air bleeder, sight glass, and pressure gauge. Remember to turn the multiport valve handle to “Filter.”
Check the lid o-ring on the pump housing. Bend it with your fingers to check for cracks in the rubber. A defective o-ring will cause a filter to pull air, which is not good at all. If this is the case, you should replace it. If the o-ring looks good, I suggest applying a Teflon-based o-ring lubricant (I recommend using Magic Lube) to create a good seal and making it easy to remove the pump lid when needed.
Re-install the additional equipment, including a booster pump, heater and or the chlorine dispenser and make sure all drain plugs are securely in place.
Turn on the power to your pump and filter. Make sure the system starts up properly. Check for any leaks or drips.
If your pump is not pulling the water, you’ll need to help to prime the pump. Shut off the filter system, remove the pump lid and then fill the housing with water. Use a garden hose or a bucket of pool water for this.
Replace the lid and turn the filter back on. This usually helps the pump to pull water in from the skimmers) and main drains.
Backwash your sand filter if the pressure is over 15 psi. Now clean up the pool from all leafs etc. Turn on the valves to pull water in from the bottom drains. This helps the filter to get the dirt and debris of the floor of the pool.
Important: Take a sample of the pool water to a l pool supply store and get it professionally analyzed. Then you follow their instructions to get your pool back into balance. Take a second sample to the shop following their advice to make sure it is well balanced now.
concrete pools require the most maintenance of any type of in-ground pool. You don’t have to worry so much about your calcium levels in vinyl and fibreglass swimming pools but this is a very important factor when having a concrete or tiled pool. Water will leach calcium out of the surface of the pool and the grout lines if there is not enough calcium in the water, it causes further pitting, roughness, falling off tiles. Concrete-, Pebble-, Gunite pools need to be watched closely for cracks or loose areas, in a tiled pool look for missing grout lines and loose tiles, to find areas to be repaired as soon as possible in order to prevent further damages.
The pool water balance is a very important factor too, PH levels need controlled regularly depending on the usage pattern of your pool but at least twice a week in summer and winter!
The good news is that concrete pool repairs can be carried out underwater easily, no matter if it is cracks, loose tiles or mosaics, Pebbles or Gunite just to mention some surface possibilities.
The Idea for the Underwater Magic product range has been developed from the need of attaching tiles to the bottom and steps of a concrete swimming pool underwater.
After years of developing Underwater Magic got launched on the market 7 years ago as the underwater swimming pool solution which last for years and years under the impact of swimming pool chemicals
and is used in more than 70 countries around the world in all kinds of climate.
Since the launch of Underwater Magic adhesive and sealant concrete pool maintenance became so much less difficult and inexpensive that the advantages of a concrete pools are convincing people around the world to go for a concrete pool.

Underwater Magic adhesive and sealant can be used for all kinds of swimming pools and sanitizing systems.
