Pool draining is not something that is required often, but when it is, it really pays to have a professional complete this task. We have heard of many people in the area trying to drain their own pools which has resulted in their property being flooded and causing thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to their property. It is much cheaper and safer to have the professionals at Mission Viejo Pool Cleaning Service and Maintenance complete this process for you as they know exactly what they are doing.
Reasons for Draining
As we referenced before, it is not often that you need to have your pool drained, but when the need arises it generally needs to happen quite quickly to avoid damages or further damages to your pool. Below we have outlined some of the reasons you may require your pool to be drained and how we are able to assist our clients throughout this process. More common reasons for pool draining include tile repair and replacement, acid washing that we speak about in another link as well as waterproofing issues that require the drainage of a pool to complete properly.
Tile Repair and Replacement
When your tiles have started to become loose or fall off, it is best to get onto this as soon as possible before it promotes further damage. Having this done quickly also allows for us to check the rest of the pool to see if there are similar issues throughout the pool that we can address and rectify at the same time. It could be that the wrong tile glue or cement was selected and it isn’t strong enough to hold the tiles in place, or the grout has become to moist to keep the tiles in place. Alternatively it could be just a once off issue, but it is always best to check rather than risk it.
If there are issues with the tiling, there is a chance that there is also an issue with the waterproofing of your pool, or these could be two completely separate issues. If you have found the ground around your property is moist or you are needing to top up your pool on a regular basis, there may be an issue with the waterproofing. This will need to have the pool completely drained and dry to be able to inspect and rectify the issue properly so that it does not continue to reoccur.
When the pool has been drained and the cleaning or repair works have been conducted, it will be time to refill your pool again. Our team are able to complete this process and make sure that the PH balance of the pool is correct and healthy for you, your family and friends to start making use of it again. Our team of friendly technicians will give you an explanation of why the issues you faced have occurred and how this can be avoided in the future.
