Cracks in Swimming Pool

Is Your Swimming Pool Cracking?

If you’ve enjoyed your swimming pool for many years, you likely notice it is starting to show signs of wear and tear from the years of fun and frolic you and your family have shared together. You may be seeing areas of the pool that need to be patched and repaired and it might be time to call on the services of a swimming pool contractor.

To tell whether the damage to the swimming pool is something that can wait until the swim season is over or whether your swimming pool professional needs to address it immediately, you will want to contact them for an evaluation. Our swimming pool professionals explain the process and cost as the swimming pool repair will depend on the size of the damage and whether it can be repaired without having to drain the swimming pool.

Owners of fiberglass or concrete swimming pools should know that hairline cracks can be repaired with a coat of chlorinated rubber or epoxy swimming pool paint. In a fiberglass pool, a hairline crack may not need repair as it could be a sign of weathering – if you’re concerned though you might want to have your Michigan swimming pool contractor check on the evaporation levels of your pool. If there is something larger than a hairline crack your swimming pool builder can patch it with a concrete epoxy compound made specifically for concrete or fiberglass pools.

If your swimming pool has a crack or hairline fracture larger than 1/8 inch or longer than one foot, you should immediately call in your pool maintenance professional. For tears in a swimming pool liner, your swimming pool builder might be able to patch it with a pool repair kit. Unfortunately, if the tear is too large, you may have to replace the liner. Our experts will work with you to determine the best strategy for your situation.

Swimming pools, when taken care of properly, will rarely be prone to rips and tears but careful attention from your swimming pool builder will catch them in the early stages before they become problematic.
