Leak Detection

We are Certified Leak Professionals.

Electronic Leak Detection can locate pin hole size holes in a matter of minutes. It could take you hours or days and you still may not be able to locate an evasive hole.

Scuba divers are extremely expensive and can't guarantee they can find the hole.

We can establish if the leak is repairable or non-repairable, such as, a non-repairable split in the seam where the two sections of the vinyl are joined together.

Don't let a small hole turn into a huge expensive problem later.

Save money on liner replacements and water bills.

Get peace of mind knowing that the leaks have been located and you and your family can start to enjoy swimming again.

 

Pool Leak Symptoms

Water level in pool is dropping faster then normal which can not be attributed to splash out or evaporation.  Large leaks are obvious due to substantial water loss of 2-7 inches within 24 hours.  For this type of leak you are aware that you have a problem somewhere in the pool.  However the smaller leaks present a much more difficult challenge not only because of the size of the leak, because you are unable to determine if the pool is truly leaking or is the water loss just evaporation.

Believe it or not the smaller leaks in a pool are usually the leaks that are the most costly to pool owners due to the fact that they go undetected for months.  The cost starts as an increase in water usage, sanitizers, water balancer chemicals, and so on.  Leaks can also cause irreparable damage to pool structures, frames, walls, and pool foundations if left undetected for long periods of time.  Simple leak repairs required to stop a leak can untimely save you Thousands of dollars in repairs that could have been avoided.

Here are a few common areas that leaks can occur:

If you have inspected these areas and have not found any issues then we suggest doing a bucket test.

Bucket test Procedure:

  1.  Bring the pool water to its normal level.

  2.  Fill an empty bucket with pool water to about one inch from the top of the bucket. (By filling the bucket close to the top you are ensuring that the air movement over the surface of the bucket will be similar to that of the pool).

  3. Place the bucket on the first or second step of the pool.  To keep the it from floating away it may be necessary to place a small baggy of sand inside the bucket.  (By placing the bucket into the pool water you are ensuring that the water temperature of each will be the same).

  4. Mark the water level inside the bucket.

  5. Mark the water level of the pool on the outside of the bucket, on the pool wall, or skimmer face plate.

  6. Operate the pool for 24 hours as it had been operated when the leak was first suspected.

  7. After 24 hours, compare the two levels. If the pool water (outside mark) goes down more than the inside water level, There is probably a leak in the pool.

 Note:If you require leak test your pool must be vacuumed and clean.  We can not test the pool if the pool is green and full of debris.
