Service provider one told her that the entire plumbing system was compromised due to ground shifting and the leaking pipes weren’t repairable and had to be replaced at a very high cost. this led her to call the other company.
The other company told her that the piping was fine but the returns in the pool were all word, leaking and needed replacement, including the drains t the bottom of the pool. They offered her the option to cut out the drain and replace it with a new one. Costly, extensive and unnecessary. This is when we got the call.
Now, when we arrived on the pool, one of the first things we noticed was a previous structural crack repair near the bottom of the pool. We ran the equipment and saw bubbling as air was coming back into the pump. This immediately told us there was likely a leak in the skimmer line, and we were in fact correct on that. However, it was the only line in the pool showing any kind of leak, and was an easy repair without a lot of invasive digging. The company that recommended an entire pipe replacement was very wrong. What we did find, however, was that neither of the company checked to see if the previous repair on the structural crack was leaking, and it was. Just a small section of the crack showed to be leaking, but to fix this, the entire 5 feet of crack was repaired using Torque Lock Structural Staples, permanently repairing the damage and ensuring it would never leak again.
In the end, we were able to assure the customer that the entire industry isn’t a sam, but that she was right to make several calls to actual pool companies to find out what the issues in her pool were.
