Need a pool service professional? It can be difficult to know when it’s time to call for help. There are a few issues that most everyone can handle themselves. Is your skimmer basket too full? No problem. Are your pool chemicals slightly out of balance? You’ve got this. (Although, we do offer pool service professionals to handle even these things. Remember, no job is too small.) But what if your pool water level is getting lower? Here’s how to know when it’s time to call a pool service professional for help.

Pool Service Beyond Your Skill

One of the easiest ways to know if you should call a pool service professional is to know your own limitations. If you’ve been a pool owner here in Pocatello, Idaho for 60 years, you’re going to have a lot more skill and confidence than a pool newbie who just moved to Idaho last year. And there’s no shame in being a pool newbie. Know your skill level well enough to know when you’re out of your comfort zone. 

It never hurts to give our team a call. Sometimes we can solve problems or answer simple questions over the phone. And we can always send out a team member to give you a hand with your problem. Our Mastercraft Pool & Spa team lives by the motto that no job is too big or too small for us. And it’s true. It’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to pool service repairs. It’s often easier (and cheaper) to repair a small problem early on than it is to repair a large problem down the road. 

Leak Detection And Repair

One clear reason to call a pool service professional for help is when you suspect a leak in your pool. A little bit of pool water evaporation is a normal occurrence, especially in the summer when the sun shines longer and the Idaho temperature is warmer. But if your pool water level descends rapidly or significantly, it’s definitely time to call your Mastercraft Pool & Spa pool service professional. Any water loss greater than 2 inches per week or so would be more than we’d expect for normal pool evaporation.

Don’t let pool leaks scare you, though. They happen. Our pool service team at Mastercraft Pool & Spa is more than equipped to not only find your pool’s leak within an area of 2’ by 2’ but we’re also fully equipped to repair it with our on-staff scuba team. A pool leak is not the end of your summer fun. But it is a good reason to call your pool service professional. 

Regular Pool Service

If you’re unsure of how to best care for your pool, that’s also a great reason to contact our pool service team at Mastercraft Pool & Spa. We offer pool services from the smallest pool needs to the largest repairs. And scheduling regular maintenance from trained professionals has more benefits than just a pristine pool all the time. Our trained, experienced staff can actually recognize problems when they’re small before they become larger, bigger, more expensive problems. So, consider all the benefits of regular pool service, and how it might be great for your summer.
