We're standing by and ready to help get your pool back in working condition.
We've made the process easy...
1: Send us a pic of the leaking or burst pool Pipe
2: We'll schedule the repair and head over
3: We'll get to work and have your pool up and running
OK, let's get started, just fill out this form...
If you have electricity
Set the system to 'Freeze Protect' (for Digital Smart Systems)
Remove the pins from the clock and flip the switch to the 'On' position. (for mechanical clock systems)
These actions will allow the system to operate throughout the freezing temps which will prevent ice from forming in the pipes. The high pressure water flowing through the pipes will keep the ice away.
If you have no electricity
Turn off all the breakers to the pool panel
Do not turn on the pool equipment until a couple of days after the freeze
Ice will likely form in your pipes through the freeze; this action will prevent the system from kicking back on accidentally when your power source comes back on. If the pumps turn on when ice is in the pipes, then there's a change for bursting pipes.
In any case, if possible, cover the exposed equipment and pool pipes from the elements. This is not necessary and is a preventative measure.
