Early Signs Your Pool Needs Repairs

Early Signs Your Pool Needs Repairs

Owning a pool is a great privilege to have. You can host events, parties, and have the time of your life with your family all in the safety of your backyard. 

But for that to happen, you need to make sure the pool is working well and is always sanitized. And most people often fail to do this because of neglect and not too much maintenance. 

So to help you avoid making such mistakes, here are some early signs that your pool is in need of some repairs. Courtesy of NorCal Pool Service where we treat pools with the utmost care! 

Heater problems. 

The first and best way to tell if your pool is in need of some repairs is by judging the overall temperature of it. 

We believe here at NorCal Pool Services that all pool equipment should be running at optimum power, so if even one of those is not, then that can only mean discomfort in the future. 

And nothing is more discomforting than hopping into the pool expecting warm water, only to be greeted with cold and merciless water. 

Broken lights. 

Every light bulb will eventually give out, especially when you use them a lot. In this case, whenever you go for a night swim, the lights in the pool will burn out in the future. 

And that can be a pretty dangerous thing to deal with, especially when you use the pool. So make sure to replace your broken lights whenever you can, to make sure your pool is up and ready to be used safely again!

Wall cracks. 

Nothing says the need for renovation like seeing some wall cracks. And when it comes to your pool, you might be seeing a lot of those. 

Wall cracks are a clear sign of damage and an early sign that your pool is in need of some repairs or a renovation. So when you start to see said cracks, make sure to call us here at NorCal Pool Service, and we’ll tell you what you need to get done. 


Taking care of pools can sometimes be a bit of a hassle. But with some help from this article, you’ll be able to save yourself some time and money going into your pool repairs. So if you ever need more advice regarding your pools, then call us now at NorCal Pool Service.
