Water Around the Pool
Seeing water on your pool decking may be no surprise if it is used frequently by serious splashers. However, water that fails to drain from the deck and puddles around the pool will lead to serious problems. In addition to safety problems when walking around the pool, lingering water can cause the pool water to become dirty, accumulate, and be misdirected into expensive landscaping, or cause the drain system of the pool to fail, leading water to erode the area around the home’s foundation.
Monitor for These Red Flags (Or include this option in your inspection package):
- Puddles on the Decking – Failure to drain water from the pool deck is a slipping hazard and a leading cause of an impossible to clean pool.
- Pool Drainage Toward the Home or into Landscaping – When water no longer drains in the appropriate direction, the problem must be corrected to prevent permanent structural damage and landscaping ruin.
- Obvious Breakage or Damage – Our technicians will inspect the drain to check for damage.
- Efflorescence build-up on the decking can indicate poor water management.
Repairing the slope may resolve the problem if the deck has eroded. Otherwise, arrange for the installation of an appropriate drain system. Bear in mind that this problem may seem simple, but the root cause could be much deeper.
The Strip Drain is a drain system that consists of a metal grate over a trench. This trench will flow away from the home to prevent foundation damage.
A spot drain is another solution used when the strip drain option is inappropriate or impossible. Round drains connected in a piping network will quickly direct water away from the pool deck to prevent puddling and damage.
A French drain is the best solution for significant volumes of water flowing into landscaping. To install, technicians will dig a pit, install a drain pipe, and fill the pipe with gravel. This system will prevent water from overwhelming the landscaping.
