A pool, like any other investment, needs to be kept in tip top shape in order to get the most enjoyment out of it. Checking the chemical balance and scheduling weekly maintenance are both important steps in keeping your pool ready for swimmers, but even the most diligent groundskeepers may find that eventually certain components will need to be repaired or replaced. One such component is your pool liner. In this post, we’re going to talk to you about the things you need to look for in order to determine whether or not you need a pool liner repair, as well as provide you with information on how Aqua-Tech will come to your home to diagnose the state of your liner and provide guidance on how to proceed.
Draw the Line on Pool Liner Problems
With proper maintenance, your pool liner should last a long time. That said, it’s important to keep an eye on your liner in order to ensure it’s in the best shape possible and so that any repairs that are necessary are completed quickly. There are several key signs that are clear indications of damage or deterioration which, left for too long, might require a full pool liner repair. These signs include:
Liner Cracks – Your pool liner is in constant contact with a myriad of chemicals, as well as ultraviolet rays. Over time, these factors can cause cracks and deterioration in your pool liner. To make matters worse, these cracks can be so tiny that they can’t be seen by the naked eye. If you’re noticing a drop in your water level and you’re not sure why, the professionals at Aqua-Tech can help. We are able to identify cracked areas and either repair or recommend the replacement of your liner.
Excessive Fading – As you know, almost anything that spends time in the sun will fade. Your pool liner is no different. While this is natural, excessive fading can be a sign that your liner needs a repair. The team at Aqua-Tech can let you know if the fading your liner is experiencing should be something to worry about, as well as provide you with information on what to do about it.
Puckering and Slipping – Over time, your pool’s liner will lose some of its elasticity. When this happens, you may notice some puckering or that the liner is slipping out of its track. This can allow water to seep in behind the liner, causing wrinkles and other damage. Unfortunately, stretched liners can not be repaired, and will need to be replaced.
