Does your Pool need a repair in the middle of the summer

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!

Scientists and pool pros have developed a magical product  which is made for underwater swimming pool repair and sealant work.

Lasting results was what they had in mind when they started the project and in 2010 Underwater Magic adhesive and sealant has been launched on the market.

Since then the lab and technical team constantly test the compatibility with Underwater Magic with new sanitizing systems to make sure it is compatible with old and new systems alike.
Before an Underwater Magic product gets launched extensive field tests have been carried out in many climate zones to make sure they work well from desert to tropical conditions indoors and outdoors.

Now after 7 years Underwater Magic products are used in more than 70 countries and hundreds of points of sale and online shops around the world are making sure that the Underwater Magic products are at hand when needed.

Cost efficacy tip number 1 for your swimming pool

Many people which have bought a house with a swimming pool for the first time are shocked about their electricity bill.

Before accusing the kids or partner wasting energy have a look at your pool pump system. Many houses with pool have their pump

since the time the pool was build. When looking at the pump  it is like looking at an old sometimes almost historical refrigerator which

would have been replaced directly when moving into the house. Often replacing the pump to a nowadays low energy consumption pump will save you a lot of money,

is far more environmentally friendly and  maintains family peace. There are many different models on the market and looking at a solar powered model and/ or a

combination of  pump and heating system could also extant your pool summer.

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.

How many hours need a pool pump to run?

In some parts of the world, pool owners can keep their pools open all year around.

In such an area, you can run your pump less during the colder months 4 to 6 hours a day.

When it’s hot outside, pump and filter need to run for 8 to 12 hours a day especially if you use the pool a lot.

You need to keep that water clean and balanced as well as moving and moving, so don’t run into any problems, such as an algae growth or cloudy water, just to save a few pennies.

The water change and chemicals to get your pool back in balance cost more, trust me.

Balanced pools last longer cost less and they are more fun !

Concrete Pools

pool repair underwater

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.
