Pool Repairs

 

If any part of your swimming pool isn’t running right, we can fix it. We can offer estimates for most minor repairs over the phone at no charge. More extensive repairs will require a skilled technician to visit your pool site to evaluate the situation. In some cases, charges may apply, but that will be discussed with you prior to an appointment being set. In most cases, the initial evaluation charge is often deducted from the repair price.

 

Our pool repair technicians are among the most skilled and responsible in the industry. With years of training behind us, we get to the problem in no time. Clear explanations and alternate repair solutions help to fit your budget and feel good about your pool repair decisions. We can bring your pool or spa back to health today.

 

Most repairs can be diagnosed for a service call fee of $90. Generally, this fee can be credited towards any approved repairs from the service call. The diagnostic charge for pool heaters is $125.

 

Typical Repair Services Offered:



Filters

Your pool filter is the primary item that differentiates your pool from a swamp. We, as well as all major equipment manufacturers recommend servicing D.E. and cartridge filters every six months. We offer filter service for $90, which includes a complete break down of the filter elements, a full cleaning, inspection, reassembly, and charging of the filter for D.E. systems. If any repairs are needed, our trained technicians will be happy to explain the issue before sending a bid.  


We also offer a variety of options for filtration systems should your filter need replacing. We can evaluate your current set up, and make recommendations for the perfect pairing with your existing equipment.

Pumps

Pool pumps come in a large variety of shapes and sizes. Whether your pump has a slight drip, won’t turn on, or is throwing more sparks than a Fourth of July parade, we can break your pump down and make a thorough recommendation on what’s needed to bring it back to life. Most leaky pumps can be repaired for $30+labor.


We also can make recommendations on pump upgrades. The technology available for pool pumps has changed drastically in the past 5 years due to ever-increasing technology.

Pool Cleaners Installation, Repair or Replacement

Our professional staff is standing by to help you choose the best cleaner for your pool. Here are the 3 most popular types of cleaners:

  • Suction – Side Cleaners: The Pool Cleaner hose attaches to skimmer; suction is generated from your pool pump. These Cleaners move around the pool in a random pattern, depositing debris into your pool’s filter system. Simple to install and operate, low cost and comes with a proven track record.
  • Pressure – Side Cleaners: There are two varieties to pick from: one that attaches to pool return (where water flows back into pool from the filter). The other more effective style that requires it’s own booster pump to provide it’s powerful cleaning ability.
  • Robotic Cleaners: The Robotic Cleaners have their own filtration system they do not attach to your pool’s pump or filter system. Most units are programmable and many can be operated by remote control. Self-contained filtration eases wear on your pump and filter. This is the fastest method of cleaning.

Filter Service, Repair and Replacement

Is your pool starting to look green? Have you noticed some leaks around the filter? Is there debris returning into the pool? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you might need someone to look at your pool’s filter. The good thing about pool filters is they are fairly simple when you compare them to other pieces of pool equipment. Even though they are simple, pool filters are essential in keeping your pool’s water clean. Instead of trying to tackle your pool filter repair yourself, you should contact a professional who can take care of the hassle for you.

 

Not only will O’Neill’s Pools clean your pool filter, we will inspect the filter’s grids/cartridges, and check all o-rings and manifolds. Even a small tear in one of your filters grids or cartridges can significantly reduce the ability to filter the water properly. If you are planning on replacing your pool filter, there are different manufacturers, sizes and types from which to choose. We can assist you in properly sizing the pool filter based on the water capacity of your pool, and the existing pool equipment.

Pump Service, Repair or Replacement

A properly working pool pump will keep your pool’s water circulating properly. This will prevent algae from growing as well as keep your pool’s water looking crystal clear. A pool pump that is working correctly should be quiet, dry, and should not have any air bubbles inside of it. If you are noticing air bubbles coming through the return fittings in the pool, more than likely a there is a suction leak between the skimmer and pool pump. If your pump is leaking water it could be that the mechanical seal, or seal plate gasket has failed. In some situations, replacing your pool pump could be the best solution. By the way – we often discover pools with “energy-hogging” single speed pumps, when an energy-efficient variable speed pump would be more economical. Switching to a more energy-efficient pump will save you hundreds of dollars every year, and possibly qualify for a rebate from your energy provider.
