For many, Coleman Pools are the best choice…and not simply because they are affordable. But this is because they can be installed faster, they cost less to operate, they are safer, and can be winterized completely.
However, that doesn’t mean that they don’t have problems or issues. This is why we have looked at Coleman pool issues and solutions in this article.
1. Noisy Pump
Generally, an above ground swimming pool pump is noisier that an in-ground model. This is because the motor comes with a fan for cooling the system – so, you should expect some noise from the Coleman 18 foot pool. However, if the noise is abnormally loud or has become louder than before, there might be a problem.
First, see if the noise is due to normal vibrations from the pump operation. You can easily quiet the noise by placing a rubber mat or a piece of carpet under the pump. If that doesn’t work, inspect the bearings.
High concentration of chemicals in your Coleman pool can make the bearings to rust. If that’s the situation, get a professional to replace the bearings and even change the seal.
2. Bubbles in Pool
Bubbles in your Coleman pool can be as a result of the pool pump. If the water in your pool is low the pump will mix excess air with little water. This will form bubbles.
Also, a loose joint or a leak in the pipe underground can lead to the formation of bubbles. Carpenter ants and termites are frequent problems with above ground pool piping. You can purchase a special dye kit to locate holes and leaks in the piping.
3. Algae Affliction
Another common problem that you might notice in your Coleman pool is an affliction of algae. This will be easy to spot since your pool will look green.
First, you need to ensure that the water is fresh as this can lead to the development of algae. Also, check if the chlorine level is okay since it is meant to prevent their development.
4. Leaking Under the Pool
In most situations, a leak under your swimming pool is caused by water pressure on a side leak. So, inspect your pool for any tear or damage that might have occurred over time and contact a professional to do the repair.
Some leaks can also mean the end of useful life of your Coleman swimming pool.
5. Pool Not Leveled
This problem often occurs due to improper installation process of your pool. If you don’t compact the surface you wish to place your pool on, the surface will start to sink and make your pool to look bent.
The solution is to ensure that you add more material at the surface to level the pool.
