How many years does a pool pump last?

With regular use, most pool pumps last 8 to 12 years before needing replacement. That said, there are a few factors that affect how long a pump lasts.


Can tree roots damage a pool?

It’s true. Tree roots can damage the structure of a swimming pool or spa, or the decking surrounding them. Common trees whose roots radiate and can ultimately cause this kind of damage include poplar, ash, alder, and pine.


How can I tell where my pool is leaking?

Pool damage can be relatively easily ascertained. You would notice standing water near the pool or equipment pad and the pool or spa may be losing more than 10mm of water per day.

Abnormal water consumption is also a sure sign, as is extraordinary algae growth or discoloration of the water. Also look out for fluctuating chemical consumption, loose or failing tiles, or cracking of the cement pool deck.


What are the best trees to have around my pool?

There are quite a few tree species which shouldn’t in time cause damage to your pool area. These include Acacia, Banana, Citrus, Evergreens, Magnolia, Olive trees and Succulents.


When can and must a tree be cut down?

A tree should be cut down only if there is no other option. That includes if it dies, becomes unsafe, becomes diseased or insect-infested or blocks construction.


How much does it cost to remove a tree from my property?

Prices vary from region to region depending on the difficulty of the job. Variables include the size of the tree, access to the property and whether it needs to be trimmed or pruned.

You have the option of cutting the tree into logs, hauling it away, or uprooting it completely.
