Keeping your pool in good shape is critical, whether you are simply running practices or you are hosting meets. While you may already have the pool lane lines you need, you will need to know where to get the replacement parts whenever you need them. In fact, keeping some of these parts on hand can be useful so you can fix any problems quickly without causing a major delay, especially if you are in the middle of hosting a major meet.
The cables that hold the pool lane floats in place are critical to the function of your pool lane markers. If this cable snaps or stretches out too far, your lane markers won’t be able to hold the lanes and swimmers won’t know where to swim. Therefore, you need to keep the supplies you need to repair the cable if something goes wrong. This includes keeping a roll of the cable on hand, as well as the take-up reels so you can quickly replace them so your lane markers can function properly again.
Lane Marker Floats
Lane marker floats are often made from plastic and are prone to breaking, especially if they have been exposed to the elements. Therefore, you should keep a stock of the lane marker floats in the same design and colors as those that are already on your pool lane markers. This will ensure you can replace them quickly if they break. While a broken lane marker float won’t have a major impact on the function of your pool markers, it is best to replace them to prevent swimmers from hurting themselves on it.
Being able to quickly repair your lane markers can be critical to the success of the swimmers in your pool. While you can easily continue practice without the lane markers, if you happen to hold a meet and something goes wrong with your lane markers, it isn’t the time to find out you can’t fix it. If you keep the proper supplies on hand, as well as know exactly how to fix any problems that may arise, you will be able to resolve the problem as quickly as possible so you can continue on with the meet. As long as you have a length of cable and the proper lane markers, you will be prepared for just about anything that can go wrong.
