The Top 3 Most Common Houston Pool Repairs

When it comes to repairing pools, Manning Pool Service can’t be beat. We’re experts at everything related to pools. From time to time, we notice trends regarding which repairs are done most often.

Here’s what we see most often in terms of Houston pool repairs:

Houston pool repairPool Pump Repair

Pool pumps and motors are responsible for circulating water throughout your swimming pool. The pump takes water from the pool through the main drain to the filter and returns it back to the main pool.

When the water pump is not working correctly, your beautiful pool is not able to properly filter and pump clean water, causing your pool to become dirty and potentially hazardous for swimming.

How to Tell if Your Pump Needs Repair

  • Your water looks cloudy or dirty – result of bad circulation
  • Unusually high electric bills – happens due to continuous running of pump and motor

If your pool has an older water pump, we highly recommend that you take advantage of the new pump technology that lowers energy costs by up to 60%. Today’s new pumps can be programmed to run at variable speeds during the day and/or night.


Lower your energy costs by 60% with a variable speed pump.


MPS is a certified installer for Centerpoint Energy’s “Smart Pool Program” because of the great benefits variable speed pumps provide to both residential and commercial pool owners and property managers. Variable speed pumps can significantly reduce the energy needed (thus, the cost associated) with the filtration, cleaning, and circulation of your swimming pool. Variable speed pumps are also much quieter and last longer than traditional single speed pumps.

Your pool heater keeps your pool warm in the winter, or on a chilly night. Pool heaters allow you to comfortably swim in your pool even when it’s cold out. As a pool owner, don’t you just love being able to go for a dip in the pool whenever you feel like it?

Heaters are the most complicated pieces of pool equipment in your backyard, which is why you should let a professional repair them.

The most common problems we tend to see with heaters include:

  • heater that won’t ignite
  • low water flow
  • doesn’t heat up
  • cycles on and off

How to Tell if Your Heater Needs Repair

  • Rust and corrosion – A serious fire hazard. Note that since heaters often are left off for long periods of time (like during the summer) they can also harbor rodents, twigs, and leaves, all of which can also cause a serious fire hazard. Rodents can chew through wiring.

There are a myriad of reasons your pool heater might not be working. During the colder months of fall and winter, a functioning swimming pool heater is important. If the heater is having issues, one of our skilled technicians will come out to check the gas valve, pumps, heater pilot, heater bypass, etc.- and we will repair or replace your pool heater and any related equipment at an affordable price.


Houston pool repairPool Filter Repair

Your swimming pool filter plays the same role for your pool as the liver plays in the human body. It basically filters your pool to keep debris from harming the system.

When your pool filter is damaged or not functioning correctly, it’s unable to do its job and can lead to damage. A leak can be very dangerous, but it’s quite common.

Filter tanks leaking through pinholes in the body should be replaced as soon as possible. Shut off a tank leaking out of the belly band and attempt to clean and seal the o-ring.

Small leaks around the air bleeder assembly are very common, and are typically fixed quickly.

How to Tell if Your Filter Needs Repair

  • pressure gauge consistently reading above 30psi
  • filter material in pool
  • running short cycles

If your pool filter is having problems, call us today. We will come out and perform a full examination of the pool’s filtration system, pinpoint the problem, and make sure that it’s fixed as soon as possible.
