There are many issues that in-ground swimming pool owners can experience during the life of their pool. Below is our top ten:
10: Water table
The level of the water table in the ground can affect your pool’s construction and how it will respond to changing climatic conditions. If the ground water table is high, your pool can be subject to “floating” in the ground. Keeping the water level in the pool stable helps combat the pool from floating up.
In most areas, pools will have a hydrostatic valve installed to help proper equalization of the water table with the pool water level.
If a leak occurs and the ground water table is low, then a leak will be quickly absorbed by the surrounding ground, and possibly wash away the dirt from around the leakage point causing voids around the pool structure.
