Waterdown Pool Leak Detection

A great swimming pool can make or break the summer season but a water leak can have a lasting negative impact on properties. For homes and commercial properties, displaced pool water can lead to drowned lawns, dead grass, higher running costs and even structural damage throughout surrounding areas. If you suspect you are dealing with water loss, call Puddle for your Waterdown pool leak detection, isolate problem areas and organize timely repairs.

Tracking down leaks in pools is a complicated process for many reasons but mostly because there are so many places that are prone to leaks. Swimming pool leaks can be structural, inside plumbing lines, caused by aging equipment and physical damage. Identifying a leak is a process in and of itself but that is only the first step to solving your problem. Instead of struggling through trial and error or an amateur approach call a local Puddle Pro for thorough and efficient pool leak detection services.

Identifying Leaks: Leak Detection in Pools

One of the key indicators that you are dealing with a leak is noticeable water loss but there is more to it than just that. There are many reasons that you might notice a drop in water level, ranging from high heats and evaporation, high traffic rates and cannonballs. Every one of these will have an impact on the overall water level so it can be difficult to assess whether you are dealing with a leak or standard water loss.

If you are questioning whether or not you are dealing with a leak, many pool owners will turn to the bucket test. This involves taking a bucket of pool water and setting it next to the basin. When exposed to the same conditions, the water level in the bucket should have the same level of evaporation as the pool water. If you notice that there is more water loss in the pool than the bucket, it is time to call in the leak detection specialists!

Identifying the presence of a leak is a great first step but it is only that – a first step! From here, it is time to pinpoint what kind of leak you are dealing with. By determining the location of the leak, pool owners can create timely and efficient treatment plans to stop water loss in its tracks. There isn’t much point in spending time assessing plumbing systems when you are dealing with a leak in a pool liner, so let our Puddle Pros point you in the right direction.

In order to properly identify where a leak is coming from, Puddle technicians arrive with options for pressure testing and dye testing. A pressure test uses a stream of constant air flow applied to plumbing and return lines. If you are dealing with a plumbing leak, this will produce air bubbles that can be tracked. In the event that you are dealing with an underground leak, saturated soil will start to make a gurgling noise that can be followed using speciality listening equipment.

For those leaks that are in vinyl liners or structures, a dye test is the way to go. For a dye test to be effective the pool pump should be turned off so water sits still. From here, coloured dyes can be placed strategically throughout the pool basin. Because dye has a higher weight than pool water, it will be attracted to leaking areas. Colours can be followed and it is possible to determine if you are dealing with a liner tear or crack in concrete.
