How do I find where my pool is leaking?

Here are some steps to help you find a leak in your pool:

  • Confirm the leak: Fill a bucket with pool water and mark the water level inside and outside the bucket. Place it in the pool for 24 hours. If the water level in the bucket drops more than in the pool, you have a leak.
  • Inspect the equipment: Look for cracks or loose fittings around the pump, filter, and skimmer.
  • Look for visual signs: Check the pool surface for cracks, gaps in the tiles, or loose coping stones. Look for soft or damp areas around the pool deck or equipment pad.
  • Use leak detection dye: Once you have a suspected area, turn off the pool pump and wait for the water to become still. Add leak detection dye near the suspected leak and watch how it moves. The dye will be drawn towards the source of the leak.

If you've followed these steps and are still having trouble finding the leak, don't worry! Pool leak detection can be tricky, and that's where our experienced professionals come in. They have the tools and expertise to pinpoint the source of the leak quickly and efficiently, saving you time, money, and frustration!

How serious is a pool leak?

Pool leaks can be serious. Ignoring a leak can lead to major problems down the line, like structural damage to your pool and the surrounding area. Water leaking out of the pool without proper drainage can eventually erode the ground around your pool, which can cause cracks in the pool shell, decking, and even your home's foundation.

Early detection and repair of pool leaks can save you money on repairs in the long run. Our professional pool leak detection can quickly identify the source of the leak so you can get it repaired fast!

You can prepare for a pool leak detection test by:

Having Clean Water: Vacuuming and removing debris out of the pool helps to make it easier to spot leaks, so the water should be as clear as possible. Plus, if the water is green, you have a mold or fungus problem to address ASAP.

Maintaining Water Levels: Be sure that your pool is full to the normal level for testing. It’s helpful if you know how many inches of water your pool is losing per day, which can be determined by the bucket test.

Hopefully, the test will show that you have no leak. In some cases, environmental factors are the cause of water levels lowering, i.e., sun exposure, wind, and humidity. But, if you happen to have a leak, don’t worry too much, because we’re here to help with leak repair services that’ll have you enjoying your pool or spa once more.
