Unlevel Swimming Pools
If your swimming pool is bit unlevel (by 1/4 to ½ inch), most of the time it will not generate significant problems. However, if it is unlevel for more than one inch, it is a problem you must address as soon as possible.
Some complications can arise if an experienced contractor does not compact a pool.
- concrete pool cracks
- damage to the pool copping due to pool shifts
- inefficient operation of skimmers
- electrical wires and conduits going to the pool separating
- PVC underground pipes cracking or separating
Reasons Why Pools Become Unlevel
There are three main reasons why pools become unlevel: design & engineering imperfections, water table issues, and soil issues.
Design and engineering errors in installing the pool, and placing the concrete correctly, generate cracks in the shell.
Soil issues include uncompacted soil and settlement, poor quality soils, expansive soils, and slope creep.
Water table issues involve lack of hydrostatic relief valve, floods and extended periods of heavy rains, and high water table.
If you notice your pool floor is uneven, contact the experts in the field. The releveling process includes:
- pumping out the water from the pool
- applying a high-quality polymer injection method
- letting the special foam cure
- once fixed, the pool is refilled
- cleaning up area
