North Vancouver Pool Leak Detection

Having a home in North Vancouver is essentially being on vacation at all times — particularly if you have a pool. Beautiful views and stunning swim spaces are a winning combination, but not if you are dealing with a leak! Swimming pool leaks are not only inconvenient, they are dangerous! Even a small leak can lead to a large amount of damage and some seriously expensive repair costs. If you suspect that you are dealing with excessive water loss, call Puddle for your North Vancouver pool leak detection services and get ahead of the issue.

Unlike a bathtub, swimming pools aren’t filled and drained from single points. There are many moving parts that keep a pool running smoothly and each of these are vulnerable to leaks. Even if you suspect that you are losing water, it is tough to figure out where you are losing it from! It might be something obvious like a tear in a vinyl liner, subtle like a crack in a concrete pool, leaking pool equipment or corroded plumbing lines. Identifying a leak is difficult on its own, diagnosing the cause is even more difficult and isolating the impacted area can feel impossible. Luckily, our team of Puddle technicians have all of the appropriate tools and techniques to track even the sneakiest of leaks — nothing gets past us!

Pool Leak Detection: Spotting a Leak & Tracking it Down

Some of the main signs that you are dealing with a leak are noticeable drops in the pool water level, as well as a significant increase in water bills. As a pool owner, you have an idea of what monthly bills and daily running costs look like. If all of a sudden your water bill skyrockets, your pool might be the culprit.

If you think you might be dealing with a leak, one of the simplest way to confirm your suspicions is with a bucket test. The bucket test consists of taking a bucket of pool water and setting it next to the pool basin so they are exposed to the same conditions. From here, pool owners should measure water levels. After leaving the bucket out for a couple of days, levels should be measured again. If the water level in the pool is significantly less than the bucket, you are likely dealing with a leak.

Structural Leaks: The best way to track down structural leaks or those stemming from a tear in a pool liner is with a dye test. A pool pump keeps water circulating so it can be difficult to spot issues that are happening below water surfaces. By shutting off the pool pump and strategically placing coloured dyes in certain areas, it is possible to track the colour as it is sucked into the vacuum created by a leak.

Plumbing Leaks: Plumbing leaks can be found underground in the case of an inground pool, or can drain out into the grass around an above ground pool. Pressure testing can help to address leaks in unseen areas. This involves high pressure sprays applied in a consistent flow throughout plumbing and return lines. If there is a leak in the system, you will see air bubbles forming, or in the case of saturated soil caused by underground leaks, you will hear gurgling noises. Even a pinhole leak will cause major problems so speciality listening tools can be used to track down even the smallest leak.

When dealing with a leak it is important to call in an expert as quickly as possible. Puddle technicians provide professional swimming pool leak detection services for homes and commercial properties. With a wide network of industry professionals, Puddle technicians don’t just locate the leak, they help to organize leak repairs too!

Gabriel has by far given us the best pool service. Very punctual and respectful. We have been told many times that we have a troubled pool with algae growing between services. Ever since Puddle Pool Services started servicing us in our house in West Vancouver - we have a beautiful pool with no issues!
