Barrie Pool Leak Detection

Located at 132 Commerce Park Dr unit k Suite #260 Barrie , ON , L4N 0Z7

Swimming pool leaks don’t just ruin your summer, they can ruin your whole year! Even a pinhole leak will lead to hundreds of litres of water seeping out of your pool basin and into the sensitive surrounding areas. When you want to avoid damage to the area, higher utility bills, undue strain to your system and a whole lot of headache, call Puddle for your Barrie pool leak detection services.

A small amount of water loss is normal throughout the course of a week. Everything from high heats and a large number of swimmers will have an impact on your water level but no more than several inches per week. If you are losing three inches of water a day, it is time to be concerned! Without the appropriate tools and technical training, it can feel impossible to find a leak. With every day that goes by the consequences of a leak get worse and worse so quick action is key to successful detection and treatment. Luckily, local pool pros are only a phone call away!

Leak Detection in Pools: Identification & Detection

For pool owners, leaks are just about the worst thing that can happen to your swim space. Whether it is a small tear in a pool liner, leaking pool equipment, corroded plumbing lines or structural damage, even a tiny leak means big damage. Underground leaks will displace soil, creating uneven weight dispersal that can cause breakage, while plumbing leaks put unnecessary strain on water systems and internal mechanisms which will lead to the need for costly repairs and replacements —not to mention the water bill!

Water leaks will often start off small at first, so they are difficult to detect. When dealing with an inground pool, dropping water levels are a sign of a leak, while an above ground pool might have water pooling or saturated lawns in the surrounding area. Treated pool water won’t just drown lawns, the chemicals will kill off grass and plant life.

The most common signs of pool leaks are a drop in water levels but just because you suspect a leak doesn’t mean that you will be able to find it. Aside from a visible tear in a vinyl liner or physical breakage, tracking down leaks is a complicated process. Luckily, our team of leak detection specialists come equipped with multiple options for detecting leaks that are structural or in plumbing lines and equipment.

Pressure testing uses a constant flow of air to travel through systems, alerting technicians to unseen leaks. If you begin to see air bubbles or hear gurgling sounds, it is a sign that there is a leak nearby or underground. If soil is saturated, you might even hear unusual sounds coming from the ground. These can be apparent or very quiet and require speciality listening equipment. A dye test uses coloured dyes to track down structural leaks. Dye weighs more than water so once the pool pump is switched off and colouring is strategically placed, it will be sucked into cracks and can be followed.

It might not be possible to go from leak detection to pool repair in 24 hours but the sooner you start, the better your result will be. The longer that leaks are allowed to persist, the worse the outcome is. Over time, pooling water will displace soil, increase water bills and put unnecessary strain on internal water systems, so call an expert at the first sign of a struggle.

I contacted them on Monday or Tuesday and they were able to fit me in the same week for my pool closure. They were very thorough, polite, and professional. I definitely look forward to hiring them for next year's opening and maintenance. They also provide a report of their services with pictures, and payment was not due until they were finished. I would definitely recommend these guys!

Best pool opening services we've ever had. We called and they came within a week. They visited multiple times to do everything needed to get the water crystal clear, balanced, and ready to go. They made status reports after each visit. Good value too. We've paid more for single visits before. Highly recommend Puddle Pools to anyone looking for pool services in Barrie.

Our hot tub was looking kind of ugly so we decided it was time to get a professional cleaning. Alex from Puddle came by a few times to drain the tub, scrub the walls, and what not. Can’t believe the difference it made! Will be hiring them to come back to service regularly.

It was simple to schedule the appointment and the technician was prompt, knowledgeable and very helpful with opening my pool this season. He did a fantastic job with removing the cover and cleaning my pool until it sparkled. Will definitely be using their services again!

Our cleaner Dave comes by our house every week and leaves us a detailed report of what was done even while we are gone at work. So easy! Highly recommend!
