Pool Pump Repair
The heart of your circulation system, your pool pump pulls water from one or more suction ports (i.e., skimmer & main drain), and then pushes it through the filter & heater (if you have one) and back to the pools' return ports.
How long do motors last?
Motors typically last an average of eight years before needing either rebuilding or replacing. Noisy, screeching front and/or rear bearings will let you know when you need to do something.
Sunrise Pool and Service can fix your broken pump!
Pool Heater Repair
Swimming pool heaters can be the more complicated of pool equipment on you pool equipment pad. Making repairs to pool heaters should be performed by qualified personnel such as Sunrise Pool. Gas pool heaters using natural gas or LP gas can be hazardous with combustion or exhaust of the pool heater.

Vinyl Liner Replacement & leak detection
Liner bead coming out of the track? Liners are meant to fit tightly into the shape of the pool. If the liner was installed slightly off center, or if the liner is too large or too small for the pool's shape, you might experience the bead popping out of the track.
It's usually a lot of pulling and pushing to get a liner back into the track. In some cases you'll need to lower the water level a foot or more if it is out very far. Better to put back in small areas than to wait until you have to lower the water. Use of a small hair dryer (blow dryer) can heat up the liner, making it more stretchable, and easier to get back into the track. Be careful, keep the dryer moving and not too close to the vinyl! I once heated a hole right through a brand new liner using this trick! Also, if you drop the dryer into the water, don't reach in to grab it, you could become electrocuted. When the liner is put back into the track (it can be exhausting work, I'm telling you) consider using liner lock, pennies or popsicle sticks to help hold it in the track.
Liner losing its color? The original color of your liner will fade with the use of sanitizing chemicals and the effects of ol' Mr. Sun. Harsh chemicals and high concentrations of such are to be avoided. This will remove the plasticizers which give liners their resiliency, leading to brittle vinyl, which leads to new liners. The chemical makeup of modern vinyl allows manufacturers to create liners that are now much more durable and resistant to chemical, solar and algae problems.
Vinyl liner leaking? Not an uncommon problem. Liners are typically manufactured in 20 mil thickness (28-30 mil option). Although resistant to punctures...it can happen, and will happen. Especially as the liner ages, losing its resiliency. If you are fortunate enough to see a small hole in the liner, simply patch it with a vinyl liner patch kit. If underwater, buy a "wet" patch kit. If the source of the leak isn't readily apparent, go to our section on Leak Detection. Most patching of vinyl is fairly successful. Even large holes and rips can be patched, but for the best success, anything over 1-2 inches should be patched on both sides. Generally speaking, a vinyl liner patch done "dry" will have better success than an underwater vinyl repair. For large repairs, lower the water level, if possible. We have patch kits available for all types of repairs.
If you are adding more than two inches of water to your pool per week, discounting splash out and backwash waste water, you probably have a leak. Do not allow leaks in vinyl liner pools to go unchecked. Leaks can washout supporting back fill behind the walls, can corrode the walls and may wash away sand on the floor, creating sinkholes.
If you are experiencing any of the liner issues above Sunrise Pool and Service will repair or replace your pool liner.
