Pool Pump Repair

Efficient water circulation that is powered by a sturdy pool pump is of supreme importance to a well-functioning pool.  Combined with the proper balance of pool chemicals, the pump works hard to keep pool water clean and clear by pushing it through the main drain, through the filter and then back again into the pool.  Undetected pool pump damage can turn into a health hazard and result in unsanitary water in addition to increased energy costs.  Don’t let a pool pump failure ruin your swimming fun. Space City Pool Care offers a range of pump repair options including advanced technology variable speed models with programmable controls that save energy when the pool is not in use.  Our experienced technicians are equipped to replace motors, pump housing, adapter fittings, seals and much more following a complete pool pump inspection.

Common Pool Pump Problems

The estimated lifespan of the average pool pump is 8-10 years. At Space City Pool Care we work hard to make sure that you get the most of your pool equipment. We always advocate repairing your equipment if possible. We will only recommend that you replace an item if it is absolutely necessary.

Here are some common pool pump problems:

  1. Defective Bearings: Pool pumps will often encounter bearing trouble. Bearings are extremely vulnerable, especially to shock, vibration, and corrosion. You can tell when your bearings are acting up by the very peculiar whirring sound they produce when defective.
  2. Defective Pool-Pump Impeller: The impeller of your pool pump is very vulnerable to clogging. If the water it pumps is teeming with debris, it will most definitely clog. This can be avoided by keeping a close eye on pool debris. Though your impeller may still become clogged by other means. After years of use, the washer, bolts, and nuts may loosen. When they wear down and loosen, they might fall out of place and clog the impeller system. Is your impeller clogged? Give Space City Pool Care a call!

Pool Filter Repair

Working in tandem with the pump, your pool’s filtration system is equally essential for safe and clean pool water all season long. Insufficient pool maintenance and extreme temperature fluctuations during the time that your pool is closed for the season can damage valves and accompanying filter components. Our Houston pool repair experts quickly find the source of any pool filter problem and offer a range of filter repair and replacement services that include fixing filter valves and leaks, changing the sand in your filter, or installing a completely new and advanced filter system at a competitive price. 

At Space City Pool Care, we don’t expect every person to be an expert in identifying pool problems. As always, there are a number of warning signs you’ll be able to spot yourself, but some issues might be more difficult to diagnose.

To avoid misdiagnosing problems—and to avoid most problems in general—Space City Pool Care has one firm recommendation, and that’s regularly scheduled pool maintenance. A pool maintenance service won’t just look at your pool filter, they’ll look at the plaster on your pool’s surface. They’ll look at the pool pump, the pool coping, the pool steps, and more!

Pool Heater Repair

Enjoy your pool at any time of the year with regular pool heater maintenance or a completely new installation from Space City Pool Care experts. No matter the temperature, our Houston pool technicians are able to extend your pool season with efficient pool heater repair and replacement services. 

Skimmer Repair

Inadequate skimmer suction can cause weekly pool vacuuming to become ineffective and a maintenance hassle. Problems with your pool skimmer can be traced to a range of issues that may include clogging issues or complications with pump plumbing. Space City Pool Care staff will pinpoint the source of any pool equipment problem promptly and restore your pool to good working order.

Saltwater System Repair

Saltwater systems, or salt water chlorine generators are great. They’re a new development in pool technology. A saltwater system produces chlorine naturally through a process called electrolysis. Many of the side-effects of a traditionally chlorinated pool are nonexistent with a saltwater pool. Say goodbye to irritated eyes, red skin, and the strong smell that comes with chlorine.

Problems can always arise with a saltwater chlorine generator, though. A saltwater generator could unknowingly produce high levels of chlorine. Though these high-levels of chlorine may not irritate a swimmer, they can corrode your pool’s handrails, the ladder anchors, and other pool accessories. Worst of all, saltwater systems, if left unchecked, might corrode pool liner walls.

Space City Pool Care specializes in salt cell replacement for saltwater chlorine generators, and we will gladly help you with any other problems that might arise. All you have to do? Call us!
