Torrington-ct-pool-heater-and-plumbing-repairYour pool heater is a complicated piece of equipment.  Contact HydroCare for your heater repair.

Canton CT Pool Liner Repair

torn-pool-liner-in-torrington-ctRipped or Torn Vinyl Liners in your Canton Swimming Pool

Small tears, 1-2 inches in length can be easily patched with a vinyl liner patch kit.

Large tears, those of several inches to several feet, can also be patched using larger pieces of vinyl, but the long term success of the patch may be doubtful. Many people would also rather not have a patchwork quilt for a pool liner, and may prefer to replace, when budget allows. pool-liner-patch-kit

Patches tend to have the best success when they are small, and not in a corner, or too close to the bead, or any of the "cuts" to the vinyl – steps, returns, skimmers, lights. Vinyl repairs on the wall are usually successful, if the vinyl is not overly stretched and stressed in that area. If it's high on the wall, patch it dry, low wall or floor patches are usually patched wet, or underwater.

If the vinyl liner is very old, rips and tears will occur, seemingly on their own. Vinyl liners of a certain age, they become hard and brittle, and can easily 'snap', or tear horizontally, near the waterline, as shown in the top image.

There is likely no real need to replace the liner for just a small tear, or even a large one – but if the overall condition of the liner is leading to tears and rips, there will soon be many more, and at some point, it's time to plan for a pool liner replacement.

Pool Repair and Spa Tile Repair near Canton CT

6x6-Gloss-Pool-Tile-Destiny-Oyster-BlueYour Canton pool service... 
If you are considering tile work, the best time is when you are considering repainting.   Remove and repair tiles and existing paint.

The cost for our service depends on pool size, tile type chosen, and any subsurface repair work that may be needed.

Eventually the grout between tiles will erode from weather and pool chemicals. This is a normal, and just like engine tune up for your car, you will need tile repair. 

Normally we can re-grout pool tiles or if necessary we will completely replace the tile on your pool.

As your pool ages, it may need tile replacement, repair or re-grouting. Hydrocare solves small problems before they become big problems.

The grout wears thin, allowing water to seep behind the tile. When the water freezes it will cause the tile to start falling off. After this happens, it is usually too late to just re-grout the tile, therefore complete tile replacement is necessary.

Please contact us to schedule a visit and an assessment.
