Two related questions:
During May’s storms our pool liner got damaged by hail and a couple of tears have developed in one corner.
By luck I’d a pic of the pool taken a few hours before the hail hit and one taken next day, so had timeous evidence. And the insurers also knew our veranda roof had been peppered by the cherry sized hail so had no quibbles.
Now the insurers want a quote to either repair the tears or install a new liner. One will be a difficult job because of the location of tears, the other tres expensive because of the pool size.
A local pool company doesn’t want to know - they prefer to deal with rigid pools. So can anyone recommend a company in the rough Barbezieux-Jonzac-Pons area of 17. I can find the names of companies, I’m just wondering if anyone local has dealt with one they can recommend.
Second: the filters are starting to churn sand into the pool, presumably it needs changing, although I won’t discount the laterals.
We’ve had the property just under 5 years and not changed it - and from what we have discovered in the last 5 years the previous UK owners are unlikely to have done anything in the previous ten!
The trouble is we don’t know which filter is producing the sand - one is, one isn’t since half the outlets are working normally In an ideal world we’d switch off one filter and check but for some unfathomable reason the filters have been wired as one . So if anyone has any ideas I’d be glad to hear them.
The filters take 300kg of sand each and I can’t do them both together so I’d rather do the problem one first and the other later in the year.
