Emergency Pool Repair in The Woodlands, TX
Common Pool Emergencies and How to Identify Them
- What should I do if they notice my pool water level dropping?
A sudden drop in pool water level could indicate a leak in the pool. To confirm the presence of a leak, you can perform a simple bucket test. Fill a bucket with pool water and place it on the pool step. Mark the water level on the inside and outside of the bucket. After 24 hours, compare the water loss inside the bucket with the water loss outside. If there's a significant difference, it's likely that your pool has a leak. In such cases, contacting Total Pool Care for emergency leak detection and repair is crucial to prevent further damage and water wastage.
- What should I do if my pool pump stops working?
A non-functional pool pump can lead to various issues like poor water circulation and filtration, potentially causing water to become dirty and unsafe for swimming. Before contacting Total Pool Care for emergency repair, you can check a few things yourself. Ensure that the pump is receiving power, the circuit breaker hasn't tripped, and the pump's filter basket and impeller are clean and free from debris. If the pump still doesn't work, it's time to call in the experts from Total Pool Care for swift and effective pool pump repairs.
One of the best ways to ensure your pool is always ready for your family to use is to schedule routine maintenance. Having a licensed professional regularly service your pool can help you avoid expensive emergency repairs and extend the life of your filter tanks, pumps, and heaters.
Another way to be certain your pool is in great shape all year long is by keeping it clean. At Total Pool Care, we follow a rigorous checklist when performing pool services in The Woodlands that allows us to deliver results that make noticeable differences in the way your pool looks and how its equipment functions.
When you hire us for a cleaning service, we:
- Test your pool water’s chemistry to ensure there are appropriate levels of PH, chlorine, salinity, and phosphate
- Make certain there are enough stabilizers in the water and check its alkalinity, calcium hardness, and total dissolved solids (TDS)
- Empty skimmer and pump pot baskets
- Net and brush your pool to clean it of debris and other gunk
- Vacuum and leaf-master your pool to clear leaves and other vegetation
- Inspect the backwash filter and perform backwashing if necessary
- Restock and service the automatic cleaner
Before we ever get to work, we provide customers with a copy of the above checklist and notify them when we are done. Receiving this notification means that your pool has been thoroughly cleaned and is ready for you and your household to enjoy. Trust us for swimming pool maintenance in The Woodlands!

Our pool service in the Woodlands holds our team to the highest standards, and make sure that our professional cleanings are visible in the quality and condition of your pool.

You'll know what happened, and when it is safe to swim. Take a look at our approach:
SEASONAL POOL MAINTENANCE
Pollen, blooms, wind-blown bark mulch, spring flowers, left-over leaves, and fresh grass clippings can create quite a challenging environment for pool cleaners. Usually, rising water temperatures also coincide with this spring mess. Algae blooms can quickly become unsightly and out of control. Total Pool Care takes a proactive approach with timely filter services and preemptive algaecide applications.
Swim load and water loss are important factors to consider come the Summer season. Extra attention should be given to the water level in your pool.
Intense heat can cause pools in our area to lose about 1/8” of water per day. Also, toys, flippers, goggles, water guns, and other items left floating in the pool can block water from flowing into the skimmer. Any of these events or a lack of adequate water will result in your pool motor becoming very hot. This will likely damage the thread sealant on your plumbing fittings and possibly cause the motor to fail. A combined effort is our best chance of getting the most life out of your pool's pump.
Swim load is the amount of swimmers in a given week. If one person swims every day, this number is 7. A swim load of 15 is average, 50 is high. Pools with high levels of swimmers will require more sanitation and filtration. The system will need to run longer and splash out will cause water loss.
Falling leaves are the biggest offender in Autumn. A wide variety of native trees in the Woodlands and the consistent arrival of breezy cold fronts combine to wreak havoc from October to January. The sheer volume of this foliage can block water from flowing into the skimmers if not checked often. The amount of debris can lead to ineffective filtration and pump damage. The state of each skimmer basket and pump pot basket should be checked every week as well.
Dry winds evaporate water; even though the summer months have passed the water level of your pool should be watched carefully.
Most pools will have some type of freeze protection; we will ensure the proper operation of each type during the first cold snap. Every heater has a ventilation system that should be cleared of debris regularly.
Not only is it important to keep your pool clean and in proper working order, it is imperative to continually check all aspects of your system's operational status. When you request our repair services, we thoroughly examine every aspect of your pool's performance. This not only stops unnecessary breakdowns, but also increases the life of your system's components.
