Can I Replace Pool Parts Myself?

No matter how high quality your pool equipment is, ongoing maintenance is essential to ensure your equipment lasts the distance and operates efficiently. If you’re experiencing issues with your equipment, sometimes all it takes is a simple replacement part to get your equipment back up and running. Although it can feel a little overwhelming at first, you can carry out some of these repairs yourself once you get to know the various parts of your pool equipment. Let’s take a closer look at what you need to know about replacing pool parts yourself!

Are you familiar with pool maintenance?
If you’re brand new to pool ownership, it’s probably not the best idea to have a go at replacing parts without some guidance. You don’t want to start taking apart your equipment only to find that you’re not sure how to put it back together! If you’re not confident with your equipment, get a pool technician out to give you a run down and show you the various parts of your equipment. However, if you’re a long time pool owner, then you’re probably more than capable of carrying out simple replacements such as putting in new o-rings, replacing seals or installing a new hose. Once you get really confident, you might be able to attempt more complex replacements.

Have you done your research?
Before you jump in and take your pool equipment apart, make sure you’ve done a bit of research, especially if you’re doing replacements on a particular piece of equipment for the first time. Have a read of the owner’s manual or find it online if it’s being misplaced. You can also look at online videos for step by step instructions on replacements. It’s also worth going along to your local pool shop for some advice if you’re unsure – they’ll be able point you in the right direction and let you know whether the part you’re planning to replace is easy for the home pool owner.

Do you need to call a professional?
Remember, pool equipment can require complex repairs and maintenance and some things are best left to the professionals. If you’ve carried out some basic repairs and you’re still experiencing issues with your equipment, speak to a technician and arrange them to come and take a look. If you’re halfway through replacing a part and decide that you’re in over your head, you can also give your pool service company a shout for help!
