Saanich Pool Leak Detection

Nothing beats spending a day at the pool in the height of summer. At home an accessible pool space is a great place to beat the heat and host a party, while a commercial swim space can help to draw in business — unless you have a leak! Pools hold thousands of gallons of water at any given time so even a small leak will quickly lead to big trouble. Professional Saanich pool leak detection can help to identify the cause of your water loss, locate the leak and isolate the area for repair. 

Household leaks are inconvenient but swimming pool leaks are downright dangerous. As litres of water flow out of your system, soil is displaced and it takes a toll not only on the pool itself but on the surrounding areas. An underground leak will shift soil, putting excessive weight on sensitive areas, leading to cracking and breakage that will need to be repaired. High rates of water can also seep into structures cause water damage, flooding, leaks, rot and mold. Instead of waiting for a worst case scenario call professional leak detection services to stop water loss in its tracks. 

Swimming Pool Leak Detection: What to Expect From An Expert 

It does not take any special skill to notice when a pool water level drops but figuring out why is a much more complicated process. Even diagnosing a leak can be difficult. For example, a heat wave or prolonged periods of high heats will cause evaporation in pools, but that is normal. In the event that you are hosting a pool party or managing a high traffic swim space, it is important to note that every body that moves in and out of your pool is carrying water out with it. It is important not to confuse natural evaporation with water leaks. 

Plumbing Leaks: it is difficult to diagnose a plumbing leak at the best of times but it is even worse when dealing with an inground pool. Issues with plumbing can happen in accessible areas or in buried ones where they will cause underground leaks. The best way to assess these is with a pressure test. This process involves applying a consistent stream of air to plumbing and return lines. If there is a leak present it will cause air bubbles to form. If you are dealing with an underground leak, saturated water will make a gurgling sound that can be tracked using specialty equipment. 

Leaking Pool Equipment: Corrosion in internal systems and components is a common cause for water loss, particularly when dealing with a salt water pool. If this is the case with your swim space, it is important to check on everything from pool pumps, hot water heaters, motors and more. 

Structural Leaks: If you suspect that you are dealing with a structural leak, a dye test can be your new best friend. Dye testing involves turning off the pool pump and letting water become still. From here, coloured dyes are applied strategically throughout the pool basin. Because dyes weigh more than pool water, they are attracted to the vacuum created by a leak. These dyes can be visually tracked and impacted areas isolated for efficient leak repairs.
