Kitchener Pool Leak Detection

Managing water loss is never easy but when it comes to dealing with swimming pools, it is a worst-case scenario. Pools hold hundreds of gallons of water at any given time so even a pinhole leak can lead to serious water loss. If you start to notice irregularities in your water levels, don’t hesitate to call your local Puddle Pro. Waiting to address a leak can lead to serious damage so call Puddle for your Kitchener pool leak detections at the first sign of trouble. 

Pool Leak Detection Services: What to Expect 

One of the most difficult aspects of leak detection in pools is figuring out whether or not you are dealing with a leak at all. At the height of summer, swimming pools are high traffic spaces. This means water is burning off and bodies are carrying and cannonballing water out of your pool, which means reduced water levels. If you notice more than 3-5 inches of water loss on a weekly basis, it is time to consider the possibility of a leak. 

Swimming pool leaks can happen in a variety of areas so it is important to first diagnose whether you are dealing with a structural leak or a plumbing leak. Once you know where the leak is coming from, it is possible to isolate the affected area for pool repairs. In an above ground pool it is easier to address both plumbing and structural issues because they are all visible but when dealing with an inground pool, it takes more technical skill — but our local Puddle technicians have got you covered! 

Testing For Structural Leaks: Some structural leaks are obvious. If you are seeing physical damage it is easy to assume that there is a leak stemming from that area. For other more subtle leaks a dye test is an effective way to track down problem areas within structures and in vinyl liners. A dye test involves turning off the pool pump and letting water settle. From here, coloured dyes are strategically placed inside the pool basin. Because dyes weigh more than pool water they are attracted to the vacuum created by a crack, tear or leak. 

Testing For Plumbing Leaks: When dealing with an inground pool it is tough to take stock of the condition of your pool plumbing. If there is a leak in your pool plumbing it might go undetected for weeks, months or even years before you start to notice. By the time that you notice, you might already be dealing with serious damage. A pressure test uses steady streams of airflow, applied to lines. If this air stream comes into contact with a leak, it will create air bubbles that can be tracked visually. In the case of an underground leak air flow may cause gurgling sounds that can be tracked with listening equipment.
