Coquitlam Pool Leak Detection

Anytime you are dealing with a leak, it is a big problem. A dripping tap inside is frustrating enough but when your pool is leaking, this becomes even worse. Even a pinhole leak in a swimming pool can mean losing hundreds of litres of water before you even know it. If you are experiencing noticeable water loss and higher than average water bills, call Puddle for your Coquitlam pool leak detection.

Swimming pool leaks are not always detectable all at once but make themselves known over time. The first time you begin to notice water loss, you might just assume that it is normal and refill it with a basic garden hose. This means pouring more water onto an existing problem. A bit of water loss is common due to evaporation, splashing and high traffic in and out of pools, so a few inches over the course of the week is normal. If your pool looses more water than that in a day, that is a real problem. Calling an expert for your swimming pool leak detection at the first sign of trouble will save your structures, reduce your water bill and provide peace of mind.

Leak Detection in Pools: Tracking Down the Problem

Part of what makes leak detection so complicated is that swimming pools are made up of many moving parts. A leak in a pool liner will operate much different from a plumbing leak but in either case, you are losing water fast. Identifying whether or not you have a leak is only step one to solving your problems but it is the most important.

One of the most common ways of testing for a leak is called the bucket test. The bucket test operates by leaving a bucket of water out in the same conditions of the pool. If there is no leak in your swimming pool, the water in the bucket will drop at the same rate at the pool water. If the bucket remains full but the pool has dropped several inches, you are dealing with a leak!

If the bucket test comes back positive and your are noticing increased water loss, it is time to call in the pros. When you want to locate the leak, it is important to first identify whether or not you are dealing with a structural issue or one inside plumbing lines. Structural leaks are more often caused by physical damage and most commonly occur following a storm or weather event.

Pressure testing uses constant air flows inside plumbing. If there are leaks, you will see air bubbles or, in the case of an underground leak in an in-ground pool system, air will displace saturated dirt making a gurgling sound. When testing for structural leaks dye tests can help to point out problem areas. Dye weighs more than pool water and when strategically placed can act as a map to where leaks are located. By cutting the pool pump, water stops circulating and dye will be sucked up by leaking areas like a vacuum.

As a pool owner, you have a lot to focus on. Just maintaining water chemistry and keeping on top of debris can take up a lot of time and energy so it is easy to overlook a small leak. Every small leak will eventually turn into a large one. The longer that a leak is allowed to persist, underground issues will displace soil, creating imbalanced weight dispersal and putting undue strain on internal water systems and will reduce the lifespan of internal components.

Had my pool heater serviced by Kat. She was able to make it a day earlier than scheduled and even though I wasn't home, she kept me informed along the way via phone and sent me photos as updates. I'll be sure to use Puddle Pools again!

I would hands down use Kat again. I will use her next year for opening and closing the pool. Kat did the most stellar job and I cannot say enough good things about her.

We are newbies to owning a pool so needless to say it was pretty daunting to navigate through the maintenance. We feel very fortunate to have met Kat Lopez who not only helped explained the process, but walked us through it step by step. She is very patient and prompt in replying to queries. She would arrive on time when she said she would, efficient in using her time whenever she is onsite. She also provides a detailed report after every appointment so there was no second guessing on what was accomplished. Talk about professionalism at its best! The rates are reasonable. Our family is grateful we came across Puddle Pools! The rates are reasonable. We are happy to support a local business. We hope the owners know how fortunate they are to have Kat on their team! Thank you for all your help, Kat!

Excellent company. Had a cloudy pool that no amount of shock or floc would clear. Turned out to be high phosphate levels. Couple days and the pool is sparkling clean. Highly recommend if you're having pool trouble.
