How to Spot a Pool Leak

Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to determine if your pool as a leak. Unlike with indoor fixtures and appliances, you’re probably not used to watching out for the signs. On top of this, you also have to consider the environmental factors that don’t come into play with regular leak detection. A low water level, for instance, is a strong sign your pool has a leak, but this could also be the result of wind, or evaporation due to humidity and sun exposure. That said, while there are no surefire indicators of a pool leak, there are several factors you should watch out for.

    Call our Austin plumbers for pool leak detection service if:

    • Your pool is losing over .25 inches of water per day
    • You can see cracks within or surrounding the pool decking
    • You have to add water more than 2 times a week
    • The grass surrounding the pool is soggy
    • Your pool often deck lifts or sinks

    The Bucket Test

    One of the best ways to determine if your pool has a leakis to perform something called the “bucket test.” This is done by filling a bucket with water about an inch from the top and placing this bucket on the first or second step of the pool. Make sure to mark the water level inside the bucket, then turn off the pump and record the water level on the outside. Keep the pump off for 24 hours, during a rain-free day, and then compare the two water levels.

    If the pool water has gone down past the outside mark, you probably have a leak. Make sure to write down how much the water drops in inches if this is the case, so when you call for service, you can be specific in terms of the severity of the leak.
