Toronto Pool Leak Detection

Nothing says summer like a swimming pool. An accessible swim space adds a lot to any property but even a small leak is enough to take your pool out of commission. A leaky swimming pool isn’t just inconvenient, it can cause widespread damage. If you suspect that you are dealing with a leak, don’t hesitate to call a Puddle Pro. Professional Toronto pool leak detection identifies structural and plumbing leaks, as well as issues with pool equipment before they become disasters.

Pool Leak Detection: Signs That You Are Dealing With a Leak

Part of what makes water leaks such a big problem is that they can happen in various areas of your water systems, some of which are visible and some of which aren’t. If you suspect that your pool is leaking, there are a few signs that you should always be on the lookout for:

Water Loss: If you begin to notice that the water level in your swimming pool is dropping unexpectedly, it is time to call an expert. A bit of water loss is normal throughout the course of the week. Evaporation will often reduce water levels by a couple of inches over the course of the week. This is caused by high heats, high traffic and even a bit of splashing. If you begin to lose that much water in a day or notice that water has dropped much more than that in the span of a week, you are likely dealing with a leak.

Higher Water Bills: Filling a pool requires a lot of water and continuously needing to refill it will have a major impact on water bills. Adding water every week requires time and energy and it will drive your bills up. Trying to balance water when dealing with a leak is just about impossible and will result in high costs for supplies that are just going down the drain — literally!

Pooling Water: If your water levels are going down but you are beginning to notice water collecting in unexpected areas, it is a problem. An underground leak will cause soil to become saturated and creates pools of water that will sit and drown lawns.

If you begin to notice one or more of these, pool owners are quick to perform a basic bucket test to monitor evaporation but every moment that you are trying to diagnose a leak, it is getting worse. By calling leak detection specialists, you will have a definitive result not only about whether or not you have a leak, but where the leak is located.

Puddle Leak Detection Services: Tracking & Treating Problem Areas In Your Pool

Leak detection in pools is complicated but our Puddle technicians have got it down to a science. Local pool experts understand what your water systems are up against. In a concrete pool, structural leaks can be caused by physical damage or tears in a vinyl liner. Pool liners can be torn by sharp debris while concrete can be broken up following storms and even construction mishaps. No matter what caused the leak, our experts have the tools and techniques to track them down.

Pressure testing is used to test plumbing lines for leaks while dye tests are best used for structural leaks. Consistent air flow creates bubbles around problem areas and can even cause gurgling in saturated soil. Listening equipment makes it possible to identify even the most subtle problem areas. Simple steps like cutting power to the pool pump before a test can mean the difference between spotting even the smallest leaks and overlooking a problem until it becomes much worse. Puddle technicians are highly trained and experienced so we can handle issues in above ground pools and in-ground models, as well as residential and commercial properties.

With proper tools and techniques Puddle Pros isolate problem areas and help to organize repairs. Over time, leaking water under ground will displace dirt, shifting weight and putting undue pressure on structures, as well as internal water systems causing wear and tear, as well as breakage. By taking quick action to find and repair leaks, you can avoid unnecessary damage and keep systems running smoothly. Water leak detection is not a long process and can be done in a matter of 24 hours, so don’t hesitate to call a pro.
