How Can I Tell if My Swimming Pool is Leaking in Oro Valley?

8/23/2022 (Permalink)

A closeup of water in a backyard swimming pool is shown. We restore water damage 24-hours a day in Pima County.

Our Northeast Tucson and Oro Valley/Marana East teams restore water damage in Oro Valley throughout the year. If your swimming pool leaks, it can weaken your pool and home’s foundation and waste thousands of gallons of water each month. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends following these steps to determine if your pool is leaking:

  • Grab a clear container and a marker
  • During the test period, turn off the pool auto-fill, do not manually add water to the pool, and avoid splashing water out of the pool
  • Put the container on the pool steps and mark the water level on the outside of the container
  • Now, fill the container with pool water up to the mark you just made so the levels match
  • Mark the water level inside the container
  • Now, wait and give evaporation time to work, usually two to three days. You’ll have to perform the test again if it rains or is windy.
  • Place the container on the pool steps. If the water in the pool is lower than the water in the container, you have a leak
  • If both the pool level and the container water levels are the same, you do not have a leak

Worst Monsoon Season Storm in Pima County?

8/5/2022 (Permalink)

A sign reading “Flash Flooding Ahead” is shown. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Tucson.

Our Northeast Tucson and Oro Valley/Marana East teams respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. We typically arrive onsite within four hours of your call for help. One of the worst Monsoon Season storms to ever hit the Tucson area happened 60 years ago, between September 25 and 27, when Tropical Storm Claudia dropped up to seven inches of rain in the desert just west of Tucson near the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum. The storm caused flash flooding, and the waters inundated Marana and Sells.

Here is some of the equipment we use to mitigate and restore flooding damage:

Water Extraction Equipment

We use powerful extraction equipment to speed the drying process by removing the bulk of the water from your home or business.

  • Submersible and gas-powered pumps for continuous pumping of high-level water
  • Truck-mounted and portable extraction units perform efficient water removal

Drying Equipment

We use industrial-strength air movers and dehumidifiers to remove the remaining moisture from ceilings, walls, and floors. Proper drying helps to prevent swelling and warping of floors, walls, and furniture.

  • High-speed air movers cause moisture to evaporate at a faster pace
  • Industrial grade dehumidifiers pull the water vapor from the air
