A swimming pool is a form of a water tank that is used solely for swimming and recreational purposes. A few years after you have newly built your swimming pool, it will require more attention than just regular maintenance for functioning of daily use.

Blisters, bubbles and cracks are very common with fiberglass pools. These problems can be fixed with a repair kit. However, with fiberglass pools, it is very difficult to match the colour of the fiberglass when repairing it; hence the patch is always visible. Therefore, we advice our customers to seek help from trained professionals at Cape Town Pools to do a neat job in disguising the repair.
Whether it is a leak or a crack, vinyl pools are very simple to repair with a repair kit. Although you can fix the problem underwater, we advice customer to drain out the water and then fix the problem for most permanent results. The vinyl patch should completely dry before you pour water into the pool.
With vinyl pools, you also have to take good care of the vinyl liner, failing which, damage is a common occurrence. For proper maintenance of the vinyl liner, the pH level in the water should always be above 7.0. If this level lowers, then complex reactions may take place in the water and the vinyl liner will expand as a result. Wrinkles will develop on the liner and the liner will gradually degrade. In addition to the pH levels, excess chlorine in the water can also damage the vinyl liner.
The most basic and mandatory criteria in maintaining a swimming pool is to make sure the water chemistry is correct at all times. The water should be regularly sanitized with chlorine in order to kill harmful contaminants. When the chlorine comes in contact with contaminants, it loses its power and fails to protect the water. If this happens, fresh chlorine should be added. Also, as mentioned above, the pH levels in the water should not fall below 7.0.
For cleanliness and hygiene of those using the swimming pool, it is very important to keep the filter clean. Whether you are using a cartridge filter, diatomaceous earth filter or a sand filter, it has to be cleaned regularly so as to keep the pool users away from waterborne diseases.
The main role of a pool pump is to move the pool water towards the filter so that disinfection can take place. If your pool pump is not functioning properly, request the services of Cape Town Pools immediately. Our knowledgeable staff can immediately spot and fix the issue.
At Cape Town Pools, we have committed ourselves towards excellence in customer service and workmanship when it comes to repairing swimming pools for our clients. With fast and reliable service, we promise to be there on time, every time.
The aforementioned examples were a few that could be treated by swimming pool owners with the help of a repair kit. Cracks, minor leaks, chips, blisters and so on are small problems fix-able without the help of a professional.
However, in the case of major problems, hiring the services of Cape Town Pools is highly advised to fix the issue without making it further complicated. Bigger issues include problems with the filtration system, plumbing errors, and larger cracks and so on. Solving these problems becomes a simple task if the help of a professional is taken because they have the required skills, knowledge and experience to handle the issue easily.
If you try to fix the problem by yourself and instead make it a bigger, complicated issue, you will end up spending more unnecessarily in fixing the overall issue. Hire a professional to regularly maintain your swimming pool because neglecting swimming pool maintenance is one of the core reasons that lead to difficult and expensive swimming pool repairs.
