7 Helpful Commercial Pool Repair Tips
If you have some commercial pools to manage, you may be looking for some helpful tips to repair them. Here are our tips that may help you take care of your property.
1. The erosion feeder
If you know that the erosion feeder is not attached to the pool floor, you have to fix it. What you need to do is drill a few holes in the floor. Next, you have to make use of a drop-in-anchor from your nearby hardware aisle. For this job, you need to spend about half an hour.
2. Replace the split baskets
Make sure you replace every split basket and get some extra split baskets as well. You also need to replace throttles, baskets, lids and weirs. During the regular use, these things may break or get lost. If you have some extra pieces at your disposal, you can replace them right away.
3. Air bleeders
If you find that an air bleeder is not working properly, you have to remove it, as it can become a safety hazard. When you start the pump, it pushes a large amount of air into the filter tank. Now, if the air can’t find a way to get out, the surge can explode, especially if the tank is dirty. Make sure you fix the air bleeder as soon as possible.
4. Shepard’s Crook
Your jurisdiction may not have this requirement, but you need to connect the shepard’s crook to a strong pole. Moreover, make sure it is connected with strong bolts. Keep in mind that you should not use spring clips made of plastic for the connection.
If you need to fix the ladder, the handrail pad or the guard chair, you should first determine how you would bond the anchors. Remember: small pads may cost you a good deal of money if you don’t use the right accessories.
6. Leak detections
If you detect a leakage somewhere around the pool, know that you have a repair job at hand. Well, the problem may not become visible until you have set up the whole thing and the pool is operational. So, when should you plan for the repair job? Well, according to experts, if it is summer, you should wait for the mid of summer to plan for the repair work to be done in fall. The first thing you need to do is fix the leaks.
7. The vacuum gauge
This tip is for new pools. If your new pool is in need of repair, make sure it has a vacuum gauge and a pressure gauge. It would be helpful if the whole of the system is color coded.
So, if you are going to do some pool repair work on your own, we suggest that you take a look at these 7 tips. But if the pool and the related stuff is severely damaged, we suggest that you get help from a professional. After all, you may not want to cause further damage or hurt yourself in the process.
