Maple Ridge Pool Leak Detection

If your pool is leaking, grabbing a garden hose and adding water is not enough to solve the problem. In addition to losing pool water, there are plenty of consequences happening just behind the scenes. A leak might not seem dangerous but even a little bit of water can do a whole lot of damage. Instead of refilling water lines and hoping for the best, call a Puddle Pro to identify and track issues. Calling Puddle for your Maple Ridge pool leak detection means access to top of the line tools and techniques to track and isolate leaks and organize repairs to prevent damage.

Part of what makes water leak detection such a complex process is that there are many moving parts that keep it going. From structures, pool liners, plumbing lines and mechanisms, there are plenty of places that are vulnerable to leaks. Just because you suspect a leak doesn’t mean that it will be easy to find and the longer that you wait, the worse your leak becomes. A small tear in a liner will become larger over time, underground leaks will displace soil and plumbing leaks will cause wear and tear on water systems. Professional leak detection services provide effective and efficient results so leak repairs can be organized ASAP.

Leak Detection in Pools: What to Watch Out For

While swimming pool leak detection might be complicated, there are a few sure signs that you are dealing with a leak. Whether you can spot a noticeable tear or break or not, water loss is a definite symptom of dealing with a pool leak. If you begin to notice that your pool water level is dropping more than a couple of inches per week, that is not regular evaporation, it is a leak!

In addition to dropping water levels, pool owners should also be on the lookout for increased water bills and even puddles of water popping up in surrounding areas. Saturated soils and damaged lawns are a sign that you are dealing with an underground leak. On a much smaller scale, if you are noticing that pool water just won’t balance, there is a chance that chemical treatments are seeping right back out through an untreated leak.

Many pool owners that are looking to identify a potential leak are quick to perform a bucket test. This consists of filling a bucket with pool water and measuring how the water level drops in the bucket versus how much it drops in the pool. If pool water drops significantly lower than the bucket, you are not dealing with standard evaporation.

Puddle Pool Services: The Best Way to Locate a Leak

If you suspect that you are dealing with a leak, identification is step one in the repair process. Leaks can occur in a wide range of places so it is important to track it down and isolate the area. The first step to isolating your leak is to test whether or not it is an issue in the structure, plumbing or pool equipment itself. There are a number of tests that can be done to determine where water is leaking out but the most common ones are:

Pressure Testing: This consists of applying a consistent stream of air flow to plumbing and lines. If you begin to see air bubbles or hear gurgling noises, it is a sign that you are dealing with leaks in pipes. In the event that you are dealing with pinhole leaks, listening devices are used to track down gurgling or bubbling noises that would otherwise go undetected.

Dye Tests: This type of testing consists of strategically placed dyes. Dye weighs more than water so when properly placed, it will be sucked up into the vacuum caused by a leak. For the best results, it is important to stop the pool pump so colour is not being circulated during the process.

A leak often can’t be tracked down and fixed in a period of 24 hours but our Puddle Pros provide timely service for leak detection and can help to organize repairs wherever needed. After years of experience in the industry our team of highly trained technicians understand the common issues facing pool owners in Maple Ridge and they have the tools to track down even the most complex leaks.

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.
