Detection & Assessment of Pool Plumbing Leaks
Pool plumbing leaks are more difficult to detect and repair than leaks found on the surface of a pool. Leaks on the surfaces may seem easy to repair, but only a true professional can determine if it is a symptom of a deeper problem.
Pool leak detection often involves sending pressurized air through the pipes or sending specialized cameras through the system. Some equipment and techniques make it possible to perform a trenchless repair on leaking pool pipes. Our technicians are well trained in using this equipment and can clearly explain how they will use the equipment in your system and everything they need to do. The technicians at Texas Fiberglass Pools Inc. will be sure to check the equalizer line, which is often overlooked as a source of pool plumbing leaks. We use a thorough and efficient pool leak detection process to identify leaking pool pipes.

In any case, we will clearly tell you the difference between necessary pool repairs and recommended improvements.
The components inside your pool filtration system have a typical shelf life of about a dozen years. The energy efficiency of these components has come so far in the past decade, replacing them early may actually save you money in the long run. Regardless, if your pool is showing signs of malfunction, it’s better to call a professional sooner than later.
The pump is at the heart of your pool plumbing system. Without it, your water will not circulate properly and get the cleaning it needs. If your pump is the problem, air or water will leak, it will fail to pull water, there will be broken baskets, worn seals, clogged impellers or diffusers, or cracked volutes.
If the motor is the problem, symptoms include overheating or a loud screeching or grinding noise, indicating the shaft bearings are bad. If it makes a humming noise, the capacitor might be on its way out.
Your pool pump uses a motor to drive water from the skimmer through the filter and back into the pool again through a return jet. The newer generation of pool pumps are equipped with automatic, variable controls and safety features. These pumps can lower energy costs, are much quieter and last longer than traditional single speed pumps.
When you suspect a pump or motor problem, Contact the professionals at Texas Fiberglass Pools Inc.. We’ll diagnose the situation and provide you with solutions. We handle:
Motor repair, replacement or upgrade

Pool Filter Repair & Installation
The quality and appearance of your pool water depends on a properly working filter system as well as regular filter inspections and maintenance. Your filter works hard to keep your pool sparkling and sanitary but without regular cleaning dirt and debris will build up inside. When that happens, the filter can’t do its job properly or at all. The three types of pool filters—sand, diatomaceous earth and cartridge—each require unique cleaning and maintenance processes.
The repair technicians at Texas Fiberglass Pools Inc. can assess your filtration system and make recommendations based on several variables, including the age of your equipment. We’ll go over your options, including energy-saving alternatives that run at a lower cost and save electricity.
Pool Salt System Repair & Installation
Salt pool systems provide a continuous regenerating supply of pure chlorine from ordinary table salt. Otherwise known as chlorine generators, pool owners like the system because it eliminates the need to store, buy, transport and handle chlorine. It’s easy to convert your standard pool to a salt system; the price will vary based on features and brands.
Salt chlorine generators do require some maintenance and repair. The salt cell will eventually lose performance and the controller circuit boards can develop problems over time. If your salt system isn’t cleaning like it should or you’re getting consistently poor readings, Contact Texas Fiberglass Pools Inc. for an evaluation today!
We Install & Replace Main Drains
The main drain isn’t used to drain the pool; it’s where most dirt and debris that sinks exits the pool. Accidental entrapment happens due to extreme suction and a faulty or improperly installed cover.
We specialize in the proper installation of pool and spa drain covers and we’re meticulous about each cover’s function and safety. We know each installation is unique and we take care to calculate flow rates, pipe and pump size, sump depths and other details.
Pools traditionally use chlorine or bromine for disinfection and sanitation but there are alternatives and among the most popular is salt generators. Salt chlorine generators convert regular table salt to chlorine and offer a number of benefits:
Less chemicals needed
Lower operating cost
Salt continuously reused
Simplified chemical maintenance
No more red eyes
Silky smooth skin
Any pool system can be converted to a salt system. If you already have a salt chlorine generator in place, we also handle repairs. Over time, the salt cell and controller circuit boards will eventually lose performance.
