Mississauga Leak Detection

For homes and businesses in the Mississauga area having an accessible swim space comes along with a long list of benefits. From drawing in customers or guests, hosting events, doing the backstroke for some exercise or attracting new tenants pools are extremely beneficial — until they spring a leak! If you believe that you’ve sprung a leak in your pool, quick action is key to preventing damage. Professional Mississauga leak detection services identify leaks, isolate problem areas and help to organize repair services to keep your system running smoothly. 

Part of what makes leak detection in pools so tricky is determining whether or not you are even dealing with a leak to begin with. Experiencing a bit of water loss is normal over the course of a week. In an outdoor pool high heats will cause evaporation and a busy swim day will mean bodies dragging pool water out with them. With this in mind, it is normal to lose approximately 3-5 inches of water per week. If you are noticing significantly more loss than this or find yourself refilling your water level multiple times a week, you are probably dealing with a leak. The longer you wait to treat your swimming pool leaks, the worse the problem becomes so don’t hesitate to call a Puddle technician! 

Pool Leak Detection: Spotting the Location of the Leak 

Some leaks are easy to spot while others are more stubborn. If you notice large cracks following a storm, accidents or physical trauma, that is likely the cause of your leak. Physical damage to pool surfaces is often obvious but there is plenty happening just below your water surfaces. A sharp piece of debris can lead to tears in a vinyl liner, tree roots can cause plumbing leaks, corrosion or aging plumbing and equipment are all serious threats. 

The major hurdles to any leak detection and repair are identifying the leak itself and isolating the problem areas. Luckily, our team of Puddle technicians come equipped with the right testing methods to check plumbings systems, structures and equipment. With the right tools, technical skill and resources, nothing gets by our Puddle technicians. 

When dealing with an above ground pool, you are more likely to notice water pooling in yards while inground pool leaks are most commonly underground. In both cases, saturated soils shift and put weight and unnecessary strain on vulnerable areas. 

A pressure test uses a consistent stream of air flow, applied to plumbing and return lines. In the presence of a leak, air bubbles will form and with an underground leak, you might hear gurgling sounds. Dye tests, on the other hand, are best used for tracking down structural leaks. These tests are performed by turning off pool pumps and strategically placing coloured dyes into the pool water. Because dye weighs more than the pool water itself it will be sucked up into the vacuum that is created by a leak. From here, the colours can be followed visually to leaks in concrete structures and even the pool liner.
