Ottawa Pressure Testing & Leak Detection

As a pool owner, leaks can be your worst nightmare. Swimming pool leaks can lead to damaged structures, water damage, floods and rot. As your pool loses more water, your utility bills will increase. In order to prevent a worst-case scenario, opt for professional Ottawa pressure testing and leak detection services. From a small leak to a large-scale loss of water, a pressure test can identify problem areas before they become disasters.

What is Pool Water Pressure Testing?

A pressure test is a key component of leak detection. The overall goal of these tests is to use air pressure to determine whether or not there are unseen leaks lurking within your water system. By assessing pool plumbing, it is possible to determine whether or not there are leaks within your system, and whether these leaks are in the plumbing or in the foundation.

The most obvious indicator that there is a leak in your system is a drop in water level. It is normal to see some evaporation but when your levels are dropped 2-3 inches over the course of 24 hours, it is time to be concerned. This level of water reductions is a sign that there is likely a leak somewhere within your plumbing system or a broken pipe that is out of sight.

In its simplest form, pressure testing uses either water or air pressure inside plumbing lines to determine whether or not it can sustain constant pressure levels. If the pipe being tested is able to maintain pressure levels, it is a good indicator that there is not a leak in that area. Expert testing can be applied to drains, return lines, skimmers and any pipes that are attached to your pool equipment.

We own a commercial property with an indoor pool and hot tub. We switched over pool maintenance companies about 6 months ago, from another company in Ottawa to Puddle Pools. We have been incredibly impressed with the service that we receive from both Zach and Richard. They have been incredibly responsive to all of our questions and are quick to take action whenever we encounter an issue, whether it is big or small. They also perform weekly routine maintenance on our pool and spa and they are always on time, courteous, professional and dependable. We are so happy to have found Puddle Pools and highly recommend them!

Called Puddle Pools Ottawa and consulted about changing out old for a new pool liner. Richard and Zachary answered all of my questions and earned my business. We couldn’t be happier so far! They did great and the pool looks amazing!

My experience with Puddle Pools was nothing short of spectacular, a true highlight in my homeownership journey. Initially, I was on the fence about who to trust with my pool liner replacement, especially given the tricky timing towards the end of fall last year. Yet, Puddle Pools stood out not just for their competitive quotes but for their unwavering commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. Zach, my point of contact, was a pivotal figure throughout this process. He epitomized professionalism and warmth, making what could have been a stressful endeavor feel like a walk in the park. His prompt responses and understanding nature underscored the company's customer-first ethos, making me feel valued and heard at every turn. The reasonability of their quotes was the first sign that I had struck gold with Puddle Pools. In a sector where costs can spiral, their straightforward and fair pricing was a welcome change. It’s refreshing to find a company that aligns its interests so closely with those of its clients, ensuring you get the best bang for your buck. The quality of their work speaks volumes, proving that they don't just meet expectations—they soar above them. Given the stellar outcome of the liner replacement, I didn't hesitate to entrust them with the installation of a pool safety cover. Once more, they exceeded my expectations, reinforcing my decision to look nowhere else for pool-related services. In summary, if you're in Ottawa and pondering over pool services, let me save you some time: Puddle Pools is the answer. Their blend of exemplary service, fair pricing, and superior work quality places them a cut above the rest. I'm beyond satisfied with their service and eagerly anticipate continuing this relationship for all my pool needs. A heartfelt thank you to Zach and the Puddle Pools team for a remarkable job well done!

Richard was the representative that came to close our family pool. Richard was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and had tremendous patience for every question I had. He responded with detailed responses and took the time to show me what he was explaining. Would strongly recommend this company for all your pool openings and closing! Have already asked to be placed on the list for the next fall closing.
