Point Edward Pool Leak Detection

There is never a good time to spring a leak. Plumbing systems are complicated and are vulnerable to weakening and damage. Having a leak under your sink is a pain but when it comes to a swimming pool, it is serious trouble. Swimming pools hold thousands of gallons of water at any given time — that is a lot of pressure! Even a pinhole leak will lead to serious water loss, which will quickly lead to serious damage. Don’t let a leak ruin your swim season when you can call a local Puddle Pro for your Point Edward pool leak detection. 

Whenever there is a pool, spa or hot tub that is losing water, it is important to consider the long-term consequences. Instead of just driving up water bills (which it will), or making it impossible to balance your water chemistry, a leaking pool can displace soil, cause water damage, flood basements and drown lawns. 

Leak Detection in Pools: What to Watch Out For 

If you start to notice that the water level in your pool is lower than usual, there are a couple possible reasons. Water loss can occur naturally during high heats or high traffic environments. On average, pool owners should expect between 3-5 inches of water loss over the course of a week.

If you are noticing more than this or find yourself having to refill water levels every day, it is time to consider that you might be dealing with a leak. The easiest way to measure water loss is to mark the water level in a pool. If water loss persists without a good reason, it is time to call in the experts. 

Puddle Pool Leak Detection Services: Tracking Down Problem Areas 

Diagnosing a leak is the first step toward repair but it is just that, a first step. Next, it is time to locate the location of the leak. When dealing with an above ground pool, identifying problem areas is easier just because structure and plumbing are on display. An inground pool is tricky because structures and plumbing are primarily buried. Luckily, our Puddle technicians come prepared with all of the necessary tools to test both structures and plumbing lines. 

Plumbing Leaks: The best way to diagnose leaks in plumbing is with a pressure test. This process involves applying a steady flow of air to water and return lines. In the event that air flow comes into contact with a crack it will create air bubbles that can be tracked visually. In the case of an underground leak (often caused by root damage or corrosion) saturated soil will make gurgling sounds. 

Structural Leaks: Dye tests are the best tool for diagnosing structural leaks in pools. This type of testing involves turning off pool pumps and waiting for water to go still. Once still, coloured dyes are strategically placed inside basins. If there is a leak in the structure or pool liner it will create a vacuum that draws in the dye and leaves a colourful trail right to the source of your problem. 

Once a leak is diagnosed, tracked down and the problem areas are isolated, Puddle technicians will provide referrals to local experts for all of your leak repair needs. By offering options for regular pool care programs, seasonal treatments, service calls, deep cleans and pool inspections, there is never a bad time to call a Puddle Pro.
