Pool & Spa
Evaporation / Water Loss

swimming pool leak specialist

Depending on the region and climate in which you live, it may not be uncommon for your pool's water level to vary day by day. Environmental factors such as humidity and wind can have an effect, causing you to lose up to a quarter inch of water per day, or about 2 inches per week to evaporation. Retaining water helps keep pool chemicals properly balanced because refilling the pool with fresh water dilutes the balance. Saving water saves chemicals, maintenance, and money and keeps a pool in top shape all season.

Slab Leak Symptoms

  • The sound of running water when all water is turned off
  • A hot spot on the floor could indicate a hot water line leak.
  • Cracks in walls or floors could be damage from a slab leak.
  • Mildew or excessive moisture under carpets could indicate your slab is cracked and the pipes are leaking water.
  • High water bills could also indicate a slab leak. Although a high water bill could indicate a water leak behind the wall or in your pool, plumbing under the slab is also suspect.
