Pool Repairs West Palm Beach
We offer a full repair service: pumps, heaters, filters, we do it all. If you notice your pump is on, but the water isn't moving, or water is leaking from the pump, that's a sign of a failing pump. You want to call a technician right away. Otherwise, your pump will fail and you'll wind up with an algae problem in addition to a pump repair/replacement.
No one wants to swim in an unheated pool, even in South Florida. If you heater cycles on and off, pilot light won’t ignite, heater leaks, is rusted, or is black on top or has black exhaust, give us a call.
The pilot light failing to light can be due to low air supply, low gas pressure, or inadequate venting. The heater itself not igniting can be caused by the pilot light being out, the gas valve being off, switch failure, or the thermostat is set to lower than the pool temperature.
Low pool temperature can be from thermostat failure, thermostat just being set too low (cool weather can be a factor), not enough gas supply, faulty high limit switch, or the heater being too small for the size of the pool.
The heater cycling on and off is most likely due to a problem with water flow. But it can be from a dirty filter, reversed water connections, or just a faulty thermostat.
A leaking heater happens sometimes. Pool chemicals are corrosive and can cause the heater to leak. This could occur from a gasket leak or loose connections. In some cases, the exchanger might need to be replaced.
The heater leaking when the burner is lit is most likely caused by condensation. Excessive water flow or damaged internal bypass can be the culprit. We’ll diagnose this for you, and can install an external bypass to better control water flow.
The top being black is most likely due to downdrafts. This can be solved by adding a high wind stack. It could be the air supply or inadequate venting. Also, check to make sure it isn’t black mold.
Heater rust can make its way into your pool. This is from the corrosive nature of pool chemicals. The pool chemical balance should be checked. Any corroded parts of the heater will need to be replaced.
The most common problem is pump failure. A likely cause is stock up or defective bearings. If the sound has changed, it is usually the bearings. The impeller may also be clogged, or the nuts and infusor bolts have worn out. The pump may not be getting enough water on the suction side. There could be a short circuit, oversized or undersized piping system, overheated motor, dried up lubrication of bearings, unmatched pump assembly.
Regardless of the problem you have, we’ll accurately diagnose it, recommend repair or replacement and give you a written estimate. Give us a call and we’ll meet with you to explain your options. Our technicians are certified professionals and can get your pool up and running smoothly, so you can enjoy it again.
