Spring Pool Maintenance Objectives To Help Prevent Major Issues With Your Pool And Pool Deck
Some tasks required to open up a pool take a little bit more time and money than the year in and year out pool maintenance. People are prone to putting these bigger items off until the last minute, but more often than not that means fixing after something extremely costly goes wrong.
One of those major issues is leaks in the pool itself due to shifting sublevel dirt around or underneath the pool itself. If your pool or pool deck appears tilted or uneven then sinking and or settling is likely taking place. This is either due to environmental factors like the presence of groundwater, a repetitive freeze and thaw cycle during winter months, or just the heavy weight of the pool or those concrete slabs weighing down on improperly packed subsurface soil.
If this process has begun then it’s only a matter of time before it gets worse. This could spell disaster for your pool if you let this go unchecked. That shifting could cause cracks in the pool or strain on pipes and pumps. It probably goes without saying, but if those things begin to occur you could be looking at thousands of dollars more in repairs. If you’ve begun to notice this occurring to your pool or concrete pool deck then action is required and should be taken seriously.
Don’t Resurface Your Pool Deck, Fix The Problem At The Source With Concrete Lifting And Leveling
Another big fix that lots of pool owners jump into is resurfacing their pool decks due to the formation or worsening of cracks. The fact of the matter is, however, that this will only fix the issue aesthetically until those concrete slabs start shifting again and the cracks will return and possibly look even worse than before. The solution is leveling your concrete pool deck slabs with a concrete leveling service.
Fill the voids that have formed underneath your slabs due to groundwater, sinking and settling. Raise the slabs back up to optimal levels so that you won’t have to worry about your pool guests tripping over hazards around your backyard and pool area.
