Acid Wash

If the interior surface of your pool (the plaster, tile or aggregate finish) is stained or discolored, an Acid Wash may be recommended. This chemical process cleans algae and other substances off the plaster and can have it looking like new in no time.

This service normally requires a drain down of the pool, and must be scheduled in advance.

If your stone or concrete deck has gotten dirty, stained or dingy, we may be able to acid wash that as well.

Leak Detection

Are you suspicious that your pool may have an underground leak? The most common symptom is observing a larger than normal drop in water lever. Some of the most common symptoms are:

  • An Increase in Chemical Demand
  • Greener Patches of Grass around the Pool Area
  • Higher than Normal Water Bills
  • Minor or Major Cracks in the Pool Surface or around the Pool Deck
  • Sitting Water around the Pool Area

An underground leak obviously wastes water, but it does more than that. Refilling and treating new water that has to be added to replace that which has been lost can cost a pool owner hundreds of dollars per year. In addition, costly structural damage can result from leaking water that erodes supporting soil or causes moisture damage to surrounding structures.

If you notice any of the symptoms above, Pool Xperts can pressure test your plumbing lines to confirm whether you have a leak in the plumbing or the shell of the pool. Based on the results of the pressure test, the technician may then use a variety of sophisticated electronics and or diving equipment to pinpoint the pool leak. Once the leak is found, Pool Xperts can then provide you with repair solutions. Most of the time repairs are minimally invasive and can be performed the same day.

Inspection

Whether you are buying or selling a home, it is important to have the property’s swimming pool adequately inspected by a certified swimming pool inspector. Once the inspection is complete our certified inspector will provide recommendations on what needs to be repaired or will need replacement in the near future. Most home inspectors are not certified to perform a swimming pool inspection, which can lead to surprises at closing for sellers and unexpected expenses for buyers down the line.
