A pool is a great gift in the months of heat! With it comes great fun, but pools also require maintenance, both of water and structure. Just like any system in your home which deals with water, pools have plumbing components. The drains which lead to and from pools can become clogged, just as a sewer main can become clogged. Those issues should be addressed as soon as possible because pools are one the highest ticket luxury items homeowners purchase. When things go wrong, they go wrong in a big and expensive way.
If not properly draining, chemicals can not process appropriately and make the water dangerous for human contact. The water that rests into your pool must have the appropriate chemical balance. Any blockage can prevent even and healthful distribution of treatments meant to keep the water safe. The water which is draining from the pool to keep the water table level is critical, as well. Water in a pool is meant to process and keep a certain amount of water, any excess overage can result in contamination and damage to the structure itself. A crack in the pool means drainage, repair, and a very expensive refill water bill.
Twigs, roots, and debris can cause blockages just as they do in any plumbing line. A qualified and licensed plumber and skilled and licensed contractor will know where lines should be located and how to install them properly. The first layer of the process has to be done correctly in order to reduce the risk of invasion from roots. Also, the trip to the main sewer line must be within permitted distances allowed by code. This means the lines bringing water to the pool must meet those guidelines.
