Leak repair can be made immediately, once a leak has been detected. We offer pool spa leak repair with the lowest prices in Los Angeles CA. Leak repairs on cracks, underground plumbing, or pool equipment will usually involve additional tools and work and will be quoted separately. If our pool leak technicians cannot take care of these repairs themselves they will refer you to repair or renovation specialists, depending on the type of leak problem detected.
We often encounter swimming pool water leaks inside skimmers. Skimmer leak repair with low pressure epoxy or a urethane foam injection system both provide high quality permanent repairs to concrete cracks and leaking skimmers. With these options, continuous, low-pressure injection allows fill material to reach all areas of the crack. Urethane foam flows all the way to the backside of the crack and around skimmer cavities before expanding to seal and prevent leak problems. All of our epoxies and foam have been carefully formulated by professionals with extensive concrete repair experience. They are designed to dispense with ease, flow properly, and allow the appropriate working time before curing.
A swimming pool leak repair may be needed due to a cracked skimmer. Skimmers look fairly simple from the deck: a basket with a lid in an opening into the pool with a gate to skim the water. In actuality, the skimmer is built into the pool wall, reinforced with rebar, and plumbed with various lines encased in gunite. It is very important that a replacement skimmer does not shift or separate from the pool wall. Skimmers usually start to leak because of uneven shifting of the area surrounding a swimming pool. The most common way to repair these types of leaks is to patch the cracked area with an underwater epoxy.
Under certain circumstances, like when there is a broken or eroded pipe underneath, it is impossible to repair cracks with epoxy so the skimmer body must be replaced. Another situation that requires skimmer replacement is a separation between the skimmer and the pool wall. This is a common problem with pools that are built on silty or expansive ground. Unless the skimmer is anchored properly it can easily separate from the swimming pool bond-beam with a slight shift in the ground. Skimmer replacements are a highly technical repair. Once we have removed the skimmer and the new skimmer has been installed, we retest the plumbing to ensure the pipes are free of leaks. The skimmer is reattached to the pool wall by pinning in new rebar and pouring a concrete collar around the body of the skimmer. Finally, we patch the deck and skimmer throat with attention to aesthetic detail.
Swimming pool leaks may occur due to broken or eroded pipes. Once we have detected the location of the damaged pipe, the line then needs to be repaired. Because your pool deck is the only thing people will see once the repair is complete, we understand the importance of minimizing excavation. For a clean hole, we start by saw-cutting the concrete. The concrete deck and the gunite underneath are then jackhammered out to expose the pipe. We carefully cut out the broken section and use signature repair techniques to reconnect the pipe and minimize restrictive flow. The pipe is retested to ensure a sound repair and, if necessary, locate secondary leaks along the same line. We backfill and compact the ground. In the final, most aesthetically important step, we strive to match the texture, color and design of your pool deck as closely as possible to prevent eyesores in your most valued leisure-time area.
Many in-ground pools are made of a concrete shell that can crack and cause slow but consistent leaks in the swimming pool. The most common cause of pool cracks is uneven ground movement around the pool. As a crack develops, it tends to gradually expand over time under the heavy weight and pressure of thousands of gallons of water. A timely repair can save a considerable amount of money in water costs. Our technicians have the knowledge and skills to locate and repair just about any type of swimming pool crack whether in the pool shell or in the pool bond beam.
Optional carbon fiber staples eliminate future movement problems by distributing load beyond the repaired crack. Carbon fiber staples add value and strength to crack repairs by distributing load beyond the glue line. Low profile provides the same tensile strength as #4 rebar but requires less material be removed for staple bed, and will not rust. All of these repair services are approached in the most careful and responsible manner by our skilled technicians who will make sure to take care of all of your leak repair needs!
