Swimming pool, spa and water feature leak detection

American Leak Detection is the world leader in finding swimming pool and spa leaks - we created the industry.

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 ¼ inch of water a day, or about 2 inches per week.

If it is green, the water may contain molds, fungus, larvae or other contaminants that could make you sick, besides making it almost impossible to test.
