Nobody wants to see their pool has been treated badly or not maintained properly. When the chlorine levels in your swimming pool drop severely, you are likely to see algae grow, this quite common in swimming pools that have not seen continuous maintenance. Whilst your green, murky colour is not exactly the problem you want, there are ways to return your pool to its former glory.

Firstly, we should remove all the debris from your pool that we can. After this important step has been carried out, we can shock your pool with chlorine. This done over a few days will hopefully result in a drastic improvement. Soon, you will be well on your way to having your glistening pool back!

If your water level drops too far, you are likely to damage the pumping system. If your pool pump is only getting air through and not water, it will eventually burn out. Make sure you keep the amount of water in your pool at a steady amount. It is inevitable that you will eventually lose a small amount of water due to evaporation.

If your water does drop, you can easily fill it back up with a garden hose, however, if your water level continues to fall, this may be a sign of a water leak. If you are having trouble to the loss of water in your pool, be sure to call the Pump and Pool People today for some great advice on what your best options will be.

All pools eventually have some sort of problem, a common one is black algae spots. These are quite normal, but you will want to remove them as fast as possible to keep your pool healthy and sparkling. A specific algicide made for black algae will fix this issue.

The Pump and Pool People will do the hard work for you, brushing and scrubbing the surface to remove and break up the algae. A common reason for black algae is a chemical imbalance, so ask us to check your pH balance and chlorine levels to help alleviate this problem long term.

The circulation in your pool is important. You may find over time that your pool builds up debris, foliage, and all sorts of other items. If this is the case, you must always check your filter. The clogging up of pool filters is a common problem and can be easily fixed by de-clogging, but if this has been a problem for a long time, you may have damaged the filter.

We are experts in fixing or replacing damaged pool filters and will be happy to help with any problem you have regarding pool filter build up. Call the Pump and Pool People today to discuss fixing your swimming pool.

Quite regularly, swimming pool owners complain about rashes, eye irritation or general itching after using their pool. This is a problem that lots of people have faced, and it is usually due to simply too much chlorine. Many people think that more chlorine is a good thing, as it can stop the build up of algae and black spots. Whilst this is true, too much chlorine is not good for you.

Excessive exposure to chlorine can cause rashes, throat pain, eye irritation and even spells of asthma. To fix this problem, ask the Pump and Pool People for help. We will check your pools pH and alkalinity levels, plus your chlorine level to ensure you have a healthy balance. When it comes to pool repairs in Sydney, Pump and Pool People have you covered.

Hassle-free swimming pool repairs at a competitive price

When owning a swimming pool, you want to be able to relax with peace of mind that everything is in working order. Every pool is subject to some sort of leakage, especially over a long period of time, and the key is to catch it fast. A leaking pool can leave you with increased water bills and if not treated may become a much bigger problem.

There are some signs that your pool may be experiencing a leak, these include:

  • Losing more water than normal evaporation rates for your climate e.g. more than 1cm. Water splashing out during pool use is an obvious reason for loss of water but if it is a continuous problem then you should get it checked.
  • If you can only run your filter properly by filling your pool every day and you are experiencing high water bills, you are highly likely to have a problem. Call the Pump and Pool People today.
  • Wet spots around the pool could be a sing that your underground piping has a leak. Always phone the experts when you have a suspicion of this kind of issue, the sooner you act, the less the expense.
