Pool pump repair
No matter what company manufactured your pool pump, motor or sanitizer, we can fix it. Whether you have a Hayward, Pentair, Jandy or any other brand name, the expert technicians at Church Pest & Pool can get your pool pump running again.
Your pool pump has two parts: the motor, which is what you may hear when it turns on, and the pump. If the pumps stop working because of a leak or just wear and tear, it’s critical to have it repaired immediately to keep your pool from emptying and the water becoming dirty and dangerous. When you call Church Pest & Pool, we can typically have your pool pump repaired within a reasonable time.
Pool filter repair
Church Pest & Pool can repair, clean and replace all makes and models of pool filters, whether you have a cartridge, sand or diatomaceous earth (DE) filter. Most manufacturers recommend cleaning your filters twice a year to keep them working at their best.
Cartridge filters are pretty simple to operate and were originally created for smaller pools and spas. But with new innovations, they’ve been installed in much larger swimming pools and can last up to five years. Typically, cartridge filters are cleaned with a high-pressure hose to remove trapped particles. These types of filters use less water because they don’t need to be backwashed like sand and DE filters.
Diatomaceous earth, or DE, filters
Diatomaceous earth, or DE, filters have been some of the most popular filters for residential swimming pools because they’re effective at stopping particles down to 3–5 microns. The power of this filter is in the powder, which is made up of the microscopic skeletons of very old subaquatic creatures called diatoms. This powder coats the nylon-covered grids of your filter, trapping dirt and keeping your water clear. Operating your system without DE powder on the grids could damage your filters. When the pressure gauge shows more than 10 lbs. of pressure after being cleared, it’s time to backwash or clean the filter.
Sand filters are known as one of the easiest types of pool filters to maintain. They use #20 silica sand (45–55 mm), which is graded to trap 20-to-100-micron particles. As the sand filter collects dirt, it actually becomes more efficient, allowing it to clean better; but when the pressure gauge reaches 8–10 lbs., the filter should be backwashed to remove the accumulated dirt. Sand deteriorates over time, and while it’s difficult to tell when your sand filter has weakened, owners may notice that it needs to be backwashed more often, the pump needs to be run more often or the water quality declines faster. If you notice any of these signs, call a professional to have your sand filter thoroughly checked and serviced.
Pool heater repair
Swimming pool heaters are a complex combination of parts and systems running on both electricity and natural gas to keep your pool warm during the cooler months. Over the years, corrosion, debris, ventilation issues, and blockage can cause your swimming pool heater to malfunction or break down. The professional technicians at Church Pest & Pool can repair or install any heating equipment, including Pentair, Hayward, and Jandy.
If your swimming pool’s equipment isn’t performing at its peak or it’s just plain broken, call us to schedule a service call.
