Lambton Shores Pool Leak Detection

Whether a swimming pool is 20 years old or 2 month old, they are always at risk of leaks. If you own or are managing a swim space it is important to make sure that your water systems are in good, working order. There is never a good time to spring a leak indoors or outside, but when it comes to leaks in a pool, this is a worst-case scenario. If you suspect that you are dealing with high rates of water loss, don’t hesitate to call a Puddle Pro. Lambton Shores pool leak detection tracks water loss, isolates problem areas for repair and does it all quickly to limit damage. 

When dealing with swimming pools water loss can occur naturally or due to physical damage. This can be blunt force from falling items, corrosion in pipes, root damage and just worn out materials. It is important to know what type of water loss you are dealing with and to take quick action to solve the issue. With every day that goes by, leaks get worse so quick action is important to preventing damage. Luckily, local Puddle Pros are here to help! 

Leak Detection in Pools: What Makes the Process So Complicated? 

One of the most difficult parts of pool leak detection is figuring out if you are dealing with a leak at all! During periods of high heats and high traffic, like a pool party for example, you can expect to see some instant water loss. Prolonged periods of warm weather will cause evaporation while many swimmers jumping in and out of water means people carrying out pool water on their bodies as well as pushing it out with cannonballs, dives and good old fashioned splashing. 

On average it is common to lose between 3-5 inches of water over the course of a week but any more than that and it is time to be concerned. If you find yourself constantly refilling your water level, it might be time for a bucket test. This process involves setting a bucket of water poolside so it is exposed to the same elements as the pool. Mark the water level in both and after a few days, the water level in the pool has dropped significantly more than in the bucket, you are likely dealing with a leak. 

If a bucket test gives you the impression that there is a leak in your system it is time to call in the big guns — your local Puddle Pro! Puddle crews provide pressure testing and dye tests to address structures as well as plumbing systems. 

Dye Test: When dealing with an above ground pool, it is easier to diagnose structural leaks because it is on full display. For inground pools structures and the majority of plumbing systems are buried and this makes tracking a leak complicated. A dye test is best used to find leaks in structures and vinyl liners. This process involves turning off a pool pump so water goes still. Coloured dyes are then strategically placed throughout the pool basin. Because dyes weigh more than pool water it will be sucked up into the vacuum created by a leak and this colour can be followed. 

Pressure Test: This process involves applying a steady stream of air to plumbing lines. If this air flow comes into contact with a leak it will create air bubbles that can be tracked visually. In the case of an underground leak you can expect to find saturated soil and this will create gurgling sounds when it comes into contact with air flow, point our Puddle crews in the right direction.
