A Leaky Pool Liner in Coweta County Can Cause Damage to Your Property
Pool liner replacement in Coweta County can be costly. For that reason, pool owners tend to ignore the problem. However, a leaky pool liner can cause incredible damage, not only to the pool, but also to surrounding structures. This is very true if your pool liner is over 10 years old.
Over the years, vinyl pool liners deteriorate due to both pool chemicals, and the UV rays of the sun. Deterioration causes the vinyl to become brittle and crack, causing leaks. Generally, these cracks and tears form near the surface, where UV damage is intense. If you see that your pool liner is cracked or torn near the waterline, you’ll need to replace your pool liner.
But, not all pool liner tears or cracks are obvious, if they are below the water’s surface. For this reason, it’s a good idea to watch for water loss.
To test for water loss, rather than evaporation, you can do a simple test; place a bucket on the pool steps and fill it with water up to the same level as the pool’s water. The water in the bucket will evaporate at the same rate as the pool water. However, if after a few days, the water level in the pool is lower than the bucket, there is a pool liner leak.
Remember, a leaking pool liner not only can damage your pool, but can also damage your home’s foundation or basement.
