The Most Common Swimming Pool Plumbing Issues

As a swimming pool services professional, we come across a myriad of issues, ranging from the simplest of problems — such as a chemical imbalance — to the most difficult, like plumbing issues.

Problems with your pool’s plumbing may be difficult to detect, however, they are important to handle quickly, as waiting to deal with plumbing problems can lead to pricey repairs in the future.

Here are just some of the most common swimming pool plumbing issues we come across at The Pool Butler:

Air In Your Pool’s System

Air that gets caught in your swimming pool’s system can turn into a critical problem fast, as this will cause water flow to become restricted.

A restriction of water flow can lead to cloudiness in your swimming pool and (in severe cases) could cause the pool’s filter tank to burst — as result of built-up pressure — which is an expensive repair job, and could be a hazard to anyone in the pool at the time.

A Buildup Of Dirt And Debris

While dirt and debris are usually thought of as risks to your pool’s cleanliness and chemistry, they can also cause pool plumbing issues as well.

Debris that is allowed to enter your pool’s filtration system can lead to serious clogs, and can even find its way into pool plumbing valves and covers, which will let in air. A swimming pool repair professional in Atlanta can effectively clear your pool’s filtration system of any debris and dirt, in order to avoid any issues down the line.

Filter Pressure Changes

Your swimming pool or spa’s filter must be working properly at all times in order to ensure water safety. Unfortunately, changes in a filter’s pressure is a surprisingly common issue, seen by thousands of pool owners across the country.

The culprit behind a decrease in filter pressure is typically trapped air, clogs, or the wrong valve settings; an increase in filter pressure, on the other hand, is usually caused by dirt, algae, or some other form of debris blocking the pool’s filter.

This can be prevented by opting for professional pool cleanings on a consistent basis from a reputable pool service company, like The Pool Butler.
