Blue Ribbon Pools, the premier provider of custom pool installation and service to the Suffolk and Nassau Communities, is advising Long Island pool owners to plan on having their pools inspected for residual damage due to the unseasonably harsh winter weather in the first months of 2014.
Every year, families across Long Island deal with the typical Northeast winter weather with thoughts of the coming summer and passing time in the family pool. Pool owners that have either in ground and above ground pools need to keep in mind that there might be damage occurring that could result in costly repairs if unaddressed. Pools that have been properly prepped for the winter will still have water in them as it is advised to partially drain pools to account for expansion due to freezing but also to prevent water from getting into the skimmer and pipes that make up the circulation system of the pool. Additionally, all pipes in the pools system should have been properly pressure cleaned to remove excess water.
Unfortunately, even these steps will not help when the temperatures dip as low as they have. As water freezes and expands, it could tear linings of above-ground pools. In-ground pools can experience issues not just by the freezing of the remaining water in the pool but also from ground water freezing and causing the foundation around the pool lining to distort. Underground pool tubing and pipes, like those used in in-ground sprinkler systems, can also be affected adversely and damaged when moisture present in the ground freezes and expands. For all of these reasons, homeowners with pools should schedule an inspection by a professional pool service company like Blue Ribbon Pools.
The team at Blue Ribbon Pools has the knowledge and expertise to look for damage and issues where homeowners might not know to look. Additionally, they have equipment that allows for inspection of pipes and hoses that are underground, able to identify issues that need to be addressed prior to opening the pool for summer. While there is no predicting that damage will definitely occur due to the extreme weather that Long Island is experiencing in the early months of 2014, having an inspection will confirm the pools' condition and allow for issues to be addressed before heavy use in summer months turn a minor issue into a costly, major issue for homeowners.
