Texas Fiberglass Pools Testimonials & ProceduresOctober 2, 2015
Texas Fiberglass Pools is based in Dallas, TX and we provide all of our services throughout the entire Dallas-Fort Worth area, which includes most of North Texas. For some of our fiberglass pool resurfacing customers who require service outside of this area, we can travel to other parts of Texas. These helpful videos show our prospective clients the process of pool resurfacing, from start to finish, offering you a sneak peek into what will be going on in your backyard for the next week to month, depending on the size and type of job we perform for you.
Highly trained and experienced members of our pool service crew will be there to guide you from initial contact to your service estimate appointment to the completion of work. We will also have a pool service expert will ensure that everything has gone according to plan and that the pool has been properly refinished to your satisfaction.
We are also available to you for year-round repairs—one of the many great features of fiberglass pools is that they can always be repaired if damage occurs. We provide everything from pool leak detection to crack repair. Fiberglass pool repair does require some labor and specific knowledge to perform the repairs. This is what makes Texas Fiberglass Pools stand out from the competition – we have years of experience, the necessary skills and equipment, and a large crew to get the job done quickly. The fall to winter (off-season) is the best time to have your pool resurfaced and repaired for a variety of technical reasons but also so that you and your family will get the most out of your pool during the warmer months of the year.

Although some people opt for less expensive surfacing solutions, fiberglass pool resurfacing is the most effective resurfacing technique—other products such as vinyl, concrete, and plaster are of lower quality, don’t last as long as fiberglass and, eventually, they require more maintenance and service, which is more expensive in the long run. The textured finish of the fiberglass pool is not slippery and we offer a non-slip polymer for the steps. Additionally, drains and other openings do not have to be moved or changed to work with new fiberglass pools; we cut fiberglass for each opening. Gunite steps can be fiberglassed, as well.
Texas Fiberglass Pools Remodel Testimonial
When caring for your new fiberglass pool, keep in mind that, although many of your pool chemicals will stay the same, there are certain issues that you will no longer have to worry about. Algae will no longer be a factor in pool maintenance. The non-porous gel-coat surface of a fiberglass pool will greatly simplify water maintenance procedures. The gelcoat is a resin that is chemically inert (so it will not affect the chemical balance of the pool water) and is extremely resistant to acids and oxidizers. In concrete pools, algae can and often does grow right through the walls of the pool, destroying the plaster finish and causing damage to the pool. Algae cannot penetrate the gelcoat finish, which is another benefit of having a fiberglass pool.
Draining Your Pool: Why Fall is The Best Time of Year for Pool Resurfacing & RepairOctober 1, 2015
Draining your pool isn’t something that you want to do without giving it some good thought; considering the timing of your pool repair is imperative to how successful your endeavor will ultimately be. Many people think that the perfect time for pool maintenance is when the weather warms up and they pull the cover off, ready to enjoy a summer of swimming. But draining a pool is not a simple process, mostly because even a small to average-sized pool is filled with a lot of water.
An average 21-foot round swimming pool with a depth of 48 inches holds 13,500 gallons of water. That amount of water weighs roughly 112,725 pounds or a little over 56 tons – that’s heavier than many average-sized houses, which usually weigh somewhere between 80,000 and 160,000 pounds. Displacing such a huge amount of water and then replacing it can cause a lot of wear and tear to your property and land. In fact, removing all of the water from your pool during a wet season (or if your pool sits in a high groundwater table) could lead to the swimming pool separating from its foundation. A full replacement could be needed if you drain your pool incorrectly or during the wrong season.
You should only drain your pool when it’s absolutely necessary – installing of fiberglass pools, maintaining and cleaning them are a few good reasons to drain. Basically, the only time you want to drain a pool completely is to stabilize total dissolved solids in the pool or perform repair or maintenance work on the interior surface of the pool. Resurfacing and repairing cracks are the main two reasons to completely drain a pool. Unless you’re doing structural work, performing leak detection, or there is too much debris from leaving your pool uncovered for a season, try to avoid completely draining your pool. This process only needs to be completed every three to five years, on average. Before you perform this practice, check with an expert or have a pool company complete the task.

When Shouldn’t You Drain Your Pool?
Unfortunately, because we live in Texas, summer lasts about nine months out of the year and one thing you never want to do is drain the pool when it’s too hot outside. To be safe, you shouldn’t drain your pool when it’s over 88-89 degrees outside, but you should never, ever drain it when temperatures are above 100 degrees. Water can evaporate on the interior surface and leave mineral deposits which are very hard to get rid of. As we stated before, you also don’t want to drain the pool right after a heavy rain or after many days of rain. During the rainy season, it is far more likely that groundwater will raise the water table around the pool and, worst case scenario, draining a pool in these conditions could cause the pool to pull out of the ground due to hydrostatic lifting. It only takes about 1/4 inch of water under the entire surface of the pool to lift it completely out of the ground.
There are two main things to keep in mind when you find the right time to drain your pool. First of all, drain it and then refill it as quickly as possible once the work is done. Secondly, you need to be aware of where you drain your pool water to. Many places will not allow you to drain it into the ground, so you have to find another way to transport it to a storm sewer or fill a water tank that can be loaded and then taken off site.
Essential Pool Repair and Maintenance in TexasSeptember 24, 2015
It’s easy to enjoy your swimming pool year after year, but it’s also easy to forget essential maintenance tasks and general repairs that will inevitably require attention. Like any major system in your home, scheduling regular swimming pool service is the number one way to avoid unexpected and costly repairs.
In addition to regular pool cleaning to maintain your pool’s machinery, you’ll want to remain aware of these common repair issues that will eventually strike your pool.
Swimming Pool Leak Detection & Repair
If you want to spend more money on water than you ever dreamed, allowing a leak to go unchecked is the perfect way to do it. According to the United States Geological Survey, just a single drippy faucet could waste three liters of water every day. Imagine the water wasted from a leak in your swimming pool. The cost could add $50 or even $100 to your water bill every single month.
Tip: It’s not always a leak that’s responsible for dropping pool levels. You might have a problem with evaporation. Your pool service technician will help identify the source of your pool’s water loss.
Pool Filter Cleaning and Replacement
The hum of the filter is a constant and familiar part of your home swimming pool, and it’s one of the first things that could cause you trouble if you neglect regular pool maintenance. You probably have a variety of filters around your home, and those filters should be cleaned or regularly replaced, just like your pool filter.
If the filter seems like it’s not doing its job, you might simply need a new cartridge, or the filter could be dirty. However, if you perform some basic cleaning on the filter and problems continue, you might need more extensive pool repairs.
Pool Lighting Updates
You probably take the lights in your pool for granted, but it’s important to keep up with the electrical system in your pool, just as you do inside your home. Over time, wires can fray and become disconnected.
Remember: Never attempt to repair your pool lights on your own. Instead, contact a professional swimming pool repair company like A Better Pool Service.
Pool Surface & Lining Repairs
Hopefully, you advise your kids and everyone who goes into the pool to avoid taking anything sharp into the water. However, over time the surface or lining of your pool will probably develop cracks and holes simply due to natural aging.
One of the best ways to keep your pool lasting a long time is catching those small early. Regular inspections from your swimming pool repair company will catch these problems early when simple patching is still possible. They can provide pool crack repair, but if your pool has excessive damage you’ll need to consider fiberglass pool resurfacing.
Pumps & Other Pool Equipment
Over time, motors wear out, particularly when they’re a pool pump motor. Sometimes it’s difficult to notice your pump is malfunctioning because the reduction in efficiency is so gradual. Check the pump every year to maintain efficiency. You might be amazed at the change in clarity with pool upgrades like a new pump.
Remember when you forgot to get the water heater serviced for a few years, and it leaked all over the garage? You don’t want the same thing to happen to your pool. Be aware of these routine pool repair issues and keep your pool functioning smoothly all season long.
