It’s worth it to hire a pro.…

We run into some pretty inter­est­ing sit­u­a­tions and want to share a cou­ple of pho­tos of a pool we vis­ited recently. Last week, we went to check out a project involv­ing updat­ing the main drain of a com­mer­cial pool and dis­cov­ered that the last per­son to work on the pool had cut the line and plugged it.  The apart­ment man­ager had no idea this had hap­pened.  When peo­ple go for the really low bid by an inex­pe­ri­enced per­son, the results can be disappointing.

In the pic­ture above, you can see that there is no plumb­ing in the skim­mer. Not good!

 

And in this photo, check out the “repair” that this same per­son made when he replaced the return lines.  The con­crete is a com­pletely dif­fer­ent color and not trow­elled flat. Doesn’t quite blend in…

We all love a bar­gain, but make sure a pro­fes­sional is doing the work on your pool—these are very expen­sive repairs to make after the fact.
