Deep Freeze

 

After cold spells like most of the country as experienced lately, many components used to keep your pool running correctly can sustain damage.  This unfortunately happens every year. While things can be done to protect these parts prior to the event, I am not going to cover that today.

I am going to discuss what you can do to fix the items that may have been damaged. Most components of your pool system are made of different grades of plastic.  Some fare better than others, but inevitably many get damaged. The first thing to look for are visible leaks.  Typically these occur in the piping and valves that are either above ground or buried underground but close to the top. 

Pumps:  The most common damage to pumps occur with the pump housing.  Typically you will find the following types of parts the most common that are damaged

Pentair has a line of underwater pool and spa lights that they sell under the brand name Intellibrite 5g.  Both of these lights have inside of them a part that they refer to as a color LED light engine.  This part consists of both computer chips and led chips that control the LED's and the color and shows that are projected out of the lights underwater.  Over time these boards will eventually fail.  When this occurs, consumers have two basic choices: 1 - Replace the board with a new one or 2 - Replace the entire light fixture.
