Macon County Public Pools were under duress as they make money with local public resources, but a municipal pool crack shuts down municipal pools and the money for it’s use stops coming in. Water was running out of the pool shell, and their in-house repair technician was at his wits end trying to make it stop. Partially because of budget concerns, but mostly because he wasn’t familiar with Torque Lock Structural Staples.
“We do have a budget,” Sally Rochelle explained, “but allocating those resources to a solution, and not to an ongoing series of temporary repairs is where we try to aim spending that budget.”
Sally and the staff at the municipal center were perplexed by the list of quotes and repair concepts they received from area contractors standing around with their hands out. This included engineers who wanted to do soil testing, weekend warriors who wanted to sparkle the pool wall with bubble gum products and major overhaulers who wanted to rip the pool out and charge closer to a million dollars to build and entirely new pool and complex around it. Then they met with Paul Crane and Crane Construction.
“He proposed a realistic solution with these Torque Lock Staples, and at a cost that was well below our maximum spending budget to make repairs. We were delighted!,” Sally told us.
Paul has been a Torque Lock Customer for years and uses them regularly for all sorts of pools and spa repairs. Where cracks happen, he installs Torque lock Staples and refinishes the pool wall to perfection, putting the pool back into service with no more water loss or structural cracking issues.
