New Westminster Pool Leak Detection

Homes in New Westminster have a lot of character and property owners take a lot of pride in their living space, as well as commercial spaces. A swimming pool adds a lot of these areas but a water leak can turn a swim space from a valuable asset to a huge liability. Swimming pool leaks do not just impact basins, they impact whole areas. From higher water bills, saturated lawns and damage, shifting soil and wear and tear to water systems, leaks bring on a whole host of problems. If you suspect you are dealing with a leak, call a Puddle Pro for your New Westminster pool leak detection to stop the water loss and prevent unnecessary damage.

There are plenty of areas that your pool, hot tub or swim space might spring a leak and that is what makes leak detection such a complex process. In an inground pool you might be dealing with an underground leak stemming from cracks or tears in vinyl liners, while above ground pools are more susceptible to physical damage and structural leaks. These are the two most common areas to find leaks but it is also possible for pool equipment itself to begin losing water. Professional leak detection services are able to identify whether or not you are dealing with a leak, isolate the problem areas and help to organize repairs.

Leak Detection in Pools: A Complex Process

There are plenty of moving parts that keep your water systems moving and each of these are vulnerable to wear and tear. Leaks can also happen at any time of year, so it is possible for them to go unnoticed over the course of the off-season. It is common for evaporation to happen, so swimming pools will need to be refilled at the start of the spring season. If you refill a pool only to notice the water level dropping, it should be cause for concern.

High temperatures cause increased evaporation rates, so it is common to lose an inch of water here and there. A high traffic swim space will have dozens of bodies moving in and out of it so water loss is common in these situations as well. Swimming pools should not lose more than several inches of water on a weekly basis, so if you are losing multiple inches of water per day, you are definitely dealing with a leak.

Simple methods like a bucket test can help to confirm whether or not you are dealing with excessive water loss but they can’t help to locate the leak. The bucket test involves taking a bucket of pool water and setting it next to swimming pools, making sure that both water sources are exposed to the same conditions. If the pool water level drops noticeably more than the water in the bucket, it is a sign that you are dealing with a leak. If this is the case, it is time to call a local pool specialist to track down these leaks and begin to repair process.

The Puddle Guarantee: Excellent Results For Your Swimming Pool Leak Detection

In order to get the best results for our clients, Puddle technicians come equipped with multiple leak detection methods. The right tools and techniques make it possible to not only spot a leak but to identify what type of leak you are dealing with and pinpoint problem areas.

Dye tests are the preferred option for structural testing and pressure testing is best suited for plumbing lines and internal water systems. Different coloured dyes make it possible to track down leaks in pools of any type and lined with any colour. By strategically placing coloured dyes and turning off pool pumps, it is possible to follow colours as they are sucked up into the vacuum created by leaks.
Pressure testing involves using a consistent flow of air applied to plumbing and return lines. If there is a leak near equipment you will begin to see air bubbles forming. In the case of an underground leak, air will displace saturated soil, creating bubbling or gurgling sounds. Listening devices can be used to isolate problem areas so repairs can be organized.

In addition to providing professional leak detection services, Puddle technicians are available for routine pool care, as well as single service cleanings, system refreshes, seasonal care and even pool inspections. With options for online and by-phone booking, you can get the ball rolling on your pool services 24 hours a day.
