    TERMITES EAT POOL LINERS AND PIPES

     In ground pools which don’t utilize wood but instead have chosen all man made supplies are at risk as well. Termites will be drawn to these pools because of their water or termites will find them by mistake. Since termites almost always have some part of their colony out on a “seek and find” mission for both food and water, in ground pools as well as above ground pools can’t hide even if they are made with all synthetic material. Their thin liners are not enough to hide the water which lies inside. Termites will detect the water and target any weak part of a pools design including the liners, as well as pipes pvc or flex pipe underground.

     Termites ability to detect water – even through thick pool liners – will initiate an interest. If they desire or need the water bad enough, they will chew their way through causing leaks. Slow at first, water loss will almost be non-detectable. However, most termite harvesting of water will tend to increase and as more and more access holes are created, water loss will be fast and noticeable. Soon, water loss will so bad the liner will have to be replaced. Many people believe termites “ate” their liner when in fact the termites really “ate through” the liner (at this point we don’t think termites are able to digest and convert plastic to food!). The same goes with underground pipe materials.
