We troubleshoot and repair leaks in both vinyl and concrete pools and spas. In addition to the repair of leaks we can make cosmetic & structural repairs underwater making draining of the pool unneccesary. Many common problems can be solved without draining the water and therefore avoiding costly downtime.  Give us a call.  It is likely we can provide a solution to your problem without disturbing the fun.

• Steps

Tighten and seal all screws around steps
Epoxy or patch with the appropriate material if possible

• Lights
Remove light and dye test entire fixture, flange, electrical conduit and fittings.
