EMPTY POOL SWIMART
Here’s why you should seek expert advice from Swimart before emptying your pool to conduct repairs.
Did you know that water acts as a stabiliser that weighs the pool down when it is in the ground? That means if you remove the water, the pool can 'pop' out of the ground or cause the walls to cave in.
Draining or emptying your pool can create financial and structural headaches, including:
Regardless of what type of pool you own, the chances of it incurring some sort of damage once it is emptied of water is likely.
Above-ground vinyl liner – once drained, the liner can shrink and possibly tear when it's time to refill the pool, especially if it is an older liner
In-ground concrete – while most of these pools are built structurally to withstand the weight of the soil that's around them when drained, high ground water levels can push the entire structure out of the ground
Fibreglass – just like a fibreglass boat, fibreglass pools 'float' easily when emptied of water, which often requires them to be braced before being emptied
