Leaks cause damage and costly repairs if ignored. Pool leak repairs are only
made with your approval and scheduled as agreed upon.
A common reason for minimal water loss occurs with natural evaporation, splash out and some back-wash waste water. To best determine if your pool is experiencing evaporation or actual water loss due to a leak that needs prompt attention, you can perform the “Bucket Test,” instructions listed below. If you notice a larger than normal decrease in pool water level, you have good reason to suspect a pool leak. If your pool has an automatic fill device, it might be harder to detect. Use these additional clues to help diagnose your pool leak likelihood:
-Increased chemical demands (to treat new water that is added to the pool)
-Increased water bills
-Cracks in the deck resulting from settling earth
-Unexplainable evidence of water outside the pool
-Pump having difficulty keeping/losing prime
-Noticeably greener patches in lawn
The Bucket Test:
1. Fill a bucket with pool water to about one inch from top.
2. Place bucket on first or second step of pool.
3. Mark water level on inside of bucket.
4. Shut off pump and mark pool level on outside of bucket.
5. Resume normal pump operation.
After 24 hours, turn off pump and compare the two levels. If the pool
water (outside mark) goes down more than the inside water level,
there is probably a leak.
