The Most Common Swimming Pool Issues We Encounter

As the swimming pool experts in Atlanta, we here at The Pool Butler have run into quite a few swimming pool issues over the years.

From small to large homes across metro Atlanta, we’ve seen it all in terms of pool problems, and — as a result — our technicians are always prepared for the unexpected, no matter how small a pool repair may seem.

Here are just some of the most common issues The Pool Butler team has dealt with in the past:

Swimming Pool Debris

With the crazy weather that can sometimes affect the South East (especially in the summer months), unfortunately pool owners are bound to run into issues.

Storms, high winds and rain are all the perfect catalyst for damage to your pool, but more often than not these conditions will bring about a myriad of debris that can get stuck in your pool’s water.

Everything from leaves, insects, patio furniture and even critters can (and have) get clogged in your drain to create problems with your pump and filter — which are problems The Pool Butler is always equipped to solve.

Beyond clogs to your filter and swimming pool pump, debris can also contaminate your water and cause illness for swimmers, which is why it’s always smart to have your water regularly tested by one of our professionals to ensure a safe swim for you and your family.

Mistakes With Pool Settings

Not everyone is a pool expert, however some pool owners may feel the need to tinker with their pool’s pump and filter in order to fix issues themselves or make the pool more comfortable. This can lead to major problems, though and is one of the most common fixes The Pool Butler is called in to perform.

Instead of trying to adjust those valves and switches, leave it to the professionals. After all, swimming pool leaks can often occur when a do-it-yourselfer makes a mistake with their pool settings.

DIY Disasters

As mentioned in the previous section, some pool owners will find themselves inclined to fix their pool’s issues themselves without having the proper training or expertise to do so.

When this happens, we’re often called in to fix the issues which (in the past) have been everything from improper pool cleaning to faulty wiring and pump connections.

All of these issues can be prevented by making the smart choice and hiring The Pool Butler for all of your swimming pool maintenance, cleaning and repair needs. We’ve been serving Atlanta for years, and our team of expert technicians are happy to assist you in making your pool look and function its absolute best.
