Fiberglass Pool Repairs for the Fall

Fiberglass Pool Repairs

While many pool owners simply forget about their pools during the colder months of the year, there is still much to do with your fiberglass pool. There are plenty of issues that could arise with your fiberglass pool during the summer, and the fall season is the perfect time to address these fiberglass pool repairs. The weather is still nice enough that technicians are able to complete their work comfortably, while summer is far enough away that the repairs will be finished by the time you want to reopen your pool for use.

Potential Fiberglass Pool Repairs

  1. Color Matching- Fiberglass pools allow owners to have fun with the colors they choose when painting their pool. Several layers of paint and finish can be used to create an ideal and unique look for pool owners, which is a benefit                 of owning a fiberglass pool. This causes a problem however when repairs are made and areas of your pool need to be repainted. Repairing your pool in the fall allows you time to rematch your pool colors after the repairs are made.
  2. Color Fading- Depending on the location of your fiberglass pool in your yard, some pools experience more sun exposure than others. Excessive sun exposure could cause your color to fade. Fall is the perfect time to touch up your pools’ color, or even choose a brand new color for next summer.
  3. Wall Bulging- Fiberglass pools tend to suffer from bulging walls. This is caused when the sand used as the backfill for the walls gets wet. The sand becomes heavier than the actual water inside the pool, leading to the bulging walls. Should this occur, the fall months are the perfect time to switch your sand for gravel as your backfill.
