How to Prepare for your Pool Leak Detection Service

If you’re ready to schedule a leak test, there are a few steps you can take to make it as accurate as possible.

Here are two ways to prepare for your service:

  • First - we recommend vacuuming and cleaning the pool out beforehand so that the pool is free from debris and easier to spot an issue.
  • Second - the water should be clear and filled to the normal level. If the water has a green hue, there is likely to be algae or mildew present. Algae and mildew make it impossible to test for leaks, and it’s a health hazard that should be addressed quickly.

Warning Signs of a Potential Pool Leak

You might be suspicious because the water level seems to lower too quickly, and that’s fair because determining whether there is a leak can be tricky. Sometimes, it’s simply evaporation from the sun, or wind and humidity present that affects water levels.

Indicators that you might have a pool leak include:

  • The pool is losing more than ¼ inch of water daily
  • There are cracks around or on the pool decking
  • You are adding water to the pool more than once a week
  • The grass around the pool is soggy or has wet patches
  • The pool deck is either sinking into the ground or lifting out

It’s safest to get a professional opinion just in case. If there’s a chance of stopping a water damage disaster before it can happen, you’ll save a lot of money and hassle down the line. At American Leak Detection of Southern Alabama, we're happy to help.

8 Tips for Preventing Pool Leaks

Owning a pool comes with the responsibility of proper maintenance to prevent leaks and potential water damage.

Here are some essential tips to keep your pool in top condition:

  • Regular Inspections. Conduct routine inspections of your pool's structure, equipment, and surrounding areas. Look for cracks, wear, or any signs of deterioration. Addressing minor issues promptly can prevent them from developing into major leaks.
  • Proper Water Chemistry. Maintain balanced water chemistry to prevent corrosion and deterioration of pool components. Imbalanced water can lead to damage to the pool lining, pipes, and equipment, increasing the risk of leaks.
  • Invest in Quality Materials. During construction or renovations, invest in high-quality materials for your pool. Quality liners, pipes, and seals are crucial for longevity and minimizing the risk of leaks.
  • Mindful Landscaping. Be cautious when landscaping around the pool area. Sharp objects or heavy equipment used during gardening can damage the pool structure. Keep trees and shrubs at a safe distance to prevent roots from compromising the pool's integrity.
  • Regular Maintenance. Maintain your pool by cleaning is weekly, checking for debris, and ensuring proper water circulation. Keeping the pool clean reduces the chances of damage and makes it easier to identify potential leaks early on.
  • Monitor Water Level. Keep an eye on the water level in your pool. If you notice a significant drop that is not due to evaporation, it could be a sign of a leak. Early detection allows for prompt repairs and prevents further damage.
  • Use a Pool Cover. Use a durable and properly fitted pool cover when the pool is not in use. A cover helps prevent debris from entering the pool, reducing the risk of damage to the pool structure and equipment.
  • Address Structural Issues Immediately. If you notice any structural issues, such as cracks or gaps, address them promptly. Ignoring these problems can lead to more extensive damage and costly repairs down the line.

Your pool should be a source of joy, enjoyment, and hospitality - not worry and stress. By following our advice, you can help prevent pool leaks.
