Menifee Pool Leak Detection

An accessible swim space is a major draw for businesses and it adds value and enjoyment to homes all year long. Nothing beats enjoying the California sun while kicking back poolside but a leak will put a damper on your day pretty quickly. Calling Puddle for your Menifee pool leak detection at the first sign of water loss can save your summer and help to avoid costly damage. 

There are a couple of reasons that you might start to notice a drop in your pool water level. Natural water loss is common, especially at the height of summer when temperatures are high. Pool leaks, on the other hand, will cause water loss no matter the climate. Over time leaks in swimming pools will only get worse, leading to serious damage and expensive repair bills. Don’t hesitate to book leak detection for your pool, spa or hot tub at the first sign of trouble. 

Swimming Pool Leak Detection: Tracking Down Problem Areas 

Sunny days and high temperatures are the staples for a great pool party but this is also the recipe for water loss. Heat causes water to evaporate and swimmers will carry and splash water right out of your system. It’s common to see between 3-5 inches of water loss over the course of a week. If you are seeing more than this or are having to refill your water level on a daily basis, you are probably dealing with a leak. 

A bucket test is a way of measuring water loss and can help you determine whether or not you are dealing with a pool leak. This involves filling a bucket with water and setting it next to the pool so the two are exposed to the same conditions. Mark the water level in each and if after a few days, the water level in the pool is noticeably lower than in the bucket, you’ve got a leak! 

The next step in the pool leak detection process is to figure out what type of leak you are dealing with and to isolate the problem areas. Puddle Pros have a couple tried, tested and true ways to do this: 

Pressure Testing: Tracking down damage or leaks in plumbing lines can be a complicated process. A pressure test involves applying air streams to plumbing and return lines. In the event that the air comes into contact with a crack or break, it creates air bubbles that will come back up through lines. This lets technicians know that there is a leak in plumbing. 

Dye Tests: Even a small piece of debris can cause serious headaches. Sharp objects can create a small tear in a pool liner. Physical damage, shifting soil and erosion can cause foundation cracks or break tiles. An effective dye test starts with switching off pool pumps and waiting for water to settle. Once still, coloured dyes are strategically placed in the pool basin. Heavy dyes are attracted to leaks and will leave a colour trail behind that can be followed right to the source of your problem.
