Have you noticed some strange sounds coming from your pool pump?
Is there a tear in your pool’s lining or a chip in the concrete around it’s edge?
As you sit there with lemonade in hand, observing these pool repairs, you’re probably weighing the costs of hiring a professional versus just doing it yourself. On the one hand, you’ve never attempted to repair a pool before, but on the other, you’d rather spend that money on the spray tan you so desperately need.
As you take another sip of your frosty beverage, you might think to yourself: “That settles it. Surely I can look up a how-to video on the internet and have that pool repair taken care of in a giffy. Sexy tanned legs here I come.”
As the professional pool repair specialists in Verrado, we’re here to ask, nay BEG, you to reconsider. Here are four very important reasons it’s a bad idea for inexperienced homeowners to attempt their own pool repairs.
The Internet Is Dark & Full Of Lies About Pool Repairs
YouTube is an amazing tool. It can allow you to experience concerts that happened before you were born or learn how to make a lemon torte. But one thing it really can’t do is teach you how to complete pool repairs with the same skill and confidence as a professional technician from Universal Pool Service in Verrado. Even advice about how to clean your pool on the internet is often wrong!
Your Pool Repairs Could Violate Legal Codes
Each city and town has its own rules about how pools must be maintained and repaired. Surprised? Many people in Verrado are. Pool improvements and pool repairs must follow these guidelines perfectly, or it could put you in violation. At best you get a fine, at worst, someone gets hurt as a result of your DIY pool repairs.
