 Case Study: Green Tint to Plaster in Salt Water Pool


Swimming Pool Inspection Services was called upon recently to inspect a swimming pool whose plaster had a greenish tint to it after being power washed. It was determined that the salt water chlorinator caused the green tint. However, it was also noted that the plaster may have been damaged from being drained for an extended period of time.
Our inspector met with the homeowner who stated that after coming back from vacation, the water in the pool was green and full of debris. She had the pool drained and cleaned, but a green tint still remained in the plaster. She was also concerned that damage had been sustained to the plaster by leaving the pool drained since the cleaning. 
 
Pool is empty with a green tint to the plaster
Inspection Observations and Analysis
In addition to the green tint to the plaster, and the fact that the pool was drained, our inspector noted that there were bubbles and blisters in isolated areas of the plaster. 
 
Damaged section of plaster
Our inspector noted that the green tint was caused by normal wear and tear, and the fluctuating alkalinity of the salt water pool. The salt system works by creating chlorine from salt. It also creates a base, raising the pH balance of the water as it works. 
Acid then needs to be added on a regular basis to bring the pH back down to a regular level. The high amounts of acid added attack the metallic parts of the pool equipment, specifically the copper in the brass heat exchangers of the heater. These metals are exchanged and the metal becomes part of the solution that is the pool water. 
Then, as the water becomes basic again, the metals fall out of solution and are deposited on the pool walls. This gives the pool a slight green tint from the oxidized copper deposits. Our inspector also stated that when water is added back into the pool, the tint would appear more blue than green.
 
He also stated that the blistering of the plaster was caused by normal wear and tear, but was likely speeded up by having the pool drained for an extended period of time.
Repair Estimates
Our inspector recommended that the pool was cleaned and pressure washed, the filter cleaned, and the pool refilled. This would cost approximate $570. If it later turned out that the plaster did need to be replaced, this would cost approximately $5,800. It was stated that once the pool was refilled, the damage to the plaster could become more noticeable with water getting behind the cracks in the plaster.

Case Study: Extreme Winds Damage Above Ground Spa


Case Study: Extreme Winds Damage Above Ground Spa
Swimming Pool Inspection Services was called out to inspect the damage sustained by an above-ground spa in Missouri, after the extreme winter months. High winds destroyed the paneling around the spa, as well as the spa cover. In addition, a lightning strike destroyed the electrical equipment to the spa. Our inspector determined that the entire unit needed to be replaced. 
Our inspector met with the homeowner who explained that the high winds during the winter months had picked up the neighbor’s trampoline, which landed in the fencing that surrounded the spa, damaging the fencing. The winds also tore the cover off the spa, and ripped the hot tub’s paneling off the frame.
Inspection Observations
An experienced swimming pool and spa inspector visited the home and made the following observations: 
• The spa cover had tears and the ties had been ripped off
• Severe damage was sustained to the cabinet
• There was no visible damage to the hot tub shell
• The hot tub did not run and the motor and heater did not function
• The hot tub’s “pack” (complete mechanical and electrical system) was old and the service wires were burnt at relays
• The electrical system was protected by quick disconnect only

The hot tub was exposed to 60 inches of snow during the winter. The electronics were non-functional and had long passed the life expectancy of the unit. The hot tub unit had no signs of leakage.
Repair Estimates
Although the hot tub was quite old, the inspector determined that it may have been operational before the storm, and that the damage was caused by the extreme weather conditions. The damage to the electrical system was likely caused by an electrical surge during the storm. 
The inspector determined that the entire unit would need replacing as it would cost more to repair the unit than to replace it, and the damaged unit was beyond its normal expectancy.
