While Spring breezes blow and emerging buds give way to blossoms, backyard pools are transitioning, too, from the cold winter’s freezing temperatures.
Now is the time to inspect pools and pool patios for signs of damage from the expansion, shrinking and settling that can compromise the stability of the pool surface. Soaking Spring rains also may undermine soils surrounding a pool. Softened, shifting soil allows these heavy surfaces to sink unevenly. Pools in areas near bodies of water such as lakes and rivers are especially susceptible to instability in saturated soil, which often results in settling or cracking.
Cantsink’s patented helical piers provide lasting, cost-effective stability for weighty pool surfaces. Easy to install and virtually undetectable once placed, Cantsink helical piers offer permanent peace of mind for decades of family summer fun.
Freezing and thawing soils under and around the pool during the winter can cause the concrete surfaces to settle unevenly, putting pressure on the pool surfaces that causes cracks. When the pool is filled, adding even more weight, water seeps through the cracks, eroding them further.
Ultimately, this means water loss. The damage can even allow contaminants to enter pool water if the cracks become large and deep enough to open a pathway to surrounding soil.
Settling also causes pool patios to buckle unevenly, creating a tripping hazard and disrupting the placement of poolside furnishings.
Homeowners who see signs of cracking or settling in their pool area should contact Cantsink right away. Call or click to schedule an appointment with a Cantsink expert.
