Mission Pool Leak Detection

Nothing can ruin a summer season faster than a leaking swimming pool. When in good, working order a pool is a major asset to any home or commercial space but when leaking, they are downright dangerous. Swimming pool leaks are tough to identify and even harder to track down but out local pool pros are here to help! Professional Mission pool leak detection uses speciality tools and techniques to track down structural, plumbing or equipment leaks.

Part of what makes pool leak detection such a complicated process is that there are so many moving parts to these systems. In order to get the best results, you will need to test areas for leaks that are visible and above ground, as well as the unseen ones that happen underground or behind the scenes. With various testing options, nothing slips by our experts.

Swimming Pool Leak Detection: What to Watch Out For

A small leak might not seem like much of a threat but even a pinhole leak can lead to hundreds of litres of pool water lost. It can take a while to notice that your water system has sprung a leak but the longer that it is allowed to go on, the worse your issue becomes. Instead of waiting for the worst-case scenario, there are a few simple signs that you can watch out for to identify a leak.

Water loss is a key indicator that you are dealing with a leak. If you find yourself reaching for a garden hose and having to refill swimming pools regularly, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you are dealing with a leak but it is important to keep an eye on. When dealing with an outdoor pool, high heats will often lead to evaporation. This means water is burning off but not an excessive rate. Traditionally, this is addressed with a simple bucket test. This means setting aside a bucket of pool water that will be left next to the pool itself. From here, it is possible to measure the rate of water loss in the pool basin and in the bucket. The rate of evaporation should be similar and if water in the pool basin drops at a higher rate than the bucket, it is likely that you are dealing with a leak.

Testing For Structural Leaks: Some structural leaks can be large cracks or obvious breakage caused by bad weather, damage from construction projects, or physical trauma. These can be easy to spot or difficult to find. When dealing with a tear in a pool liner, it is tough to see these happening underneath water surfaces. Instead of relying on visual queues alone, a dye test can help to point out problem areas. By turning off the pool pump and strategically placing dye in pool water, it is possible to follow the colour streams into the vacuum that is formed by a crack or leak.

Testing For Plumbing Leaks: If you notice that your pool water level is dropping but you can’t see any signs of breakage or dye isn’t turning up a leak, it is time to check your plumbing lines. In the case of underground or water system leaks, pressure testing is used to locate the leak and isolate the impacted area. Pressure testing consists of continuous air flow that travels through lines producing air bubbles near cracks and, in the case of saturated soil, makes gurgling sounds. This combined with speciality listening equipment makes it possible to track down even the smallest leak.

Specialist leak detection in pools makes it possible to stop the water loss, reduce water bills, and help to organize necessary leak repairs to solve the issues.
