gorgeous in-ground poolHave you noticed your pool water turning green all the time? Does the water level seem to go down quickly for no apparent reason? These are just a couple of signs that may signify something is wrong with your pool. Below are 4 common signs of pool-related issues and how they can be resolved.

  1. Trees Around the Water

If your pool is surrounded by large trees, that can put some unexpected stress on the pool itself. The reason is because leaves can fall into the water and clog up the drains. In order to prevent buildup, filters must be broken down and cleaned out once every 1.5 years and the cartridge filters should be replaced on a regular basis.

Various debris can cause the filter to have to work extra hard, which will inevitably shorten its life span. Not only that, debris can cause the impellers to become clogged, which will need to be unclogged by one of your local professional pool repair companies in St. Louis, Missouri, such as Little Giant Pool & Spa.

  1. Your Pool is Leaking

Pools can spring leaks anywhere near the plumbing. Leaks can often occur in the walls or drainage system as well. If you always have to add fresh water to the pool, even when the weather is cooler outside, you might have a leak.

If you are adding fresh water to the pool, this will dilute the chemicals that you add to keep the water clean, which will cause your pool to need extra chemicals and stabilizer. Hire a pool technician to inspect the outer equipment. If the pool plumbing is leaking on the outside, you will definitely need an expert to fix the problem.
