Pool Leak Detection

AquaRama Pools & Spas offer a professional and dependable leak detection department. Many people question how they know they have a leak, depending on the region and climate in which you live, it may not be uncommon for your pool water level to vary from day to day. Environmental factors such as humidity, wind, and air as well as water temperature can have an effect, causing you to lose up to 1/4 inch of water a day or about 2 inches per week.

AquaRama's Leak Detection ServicesYou may have a leak if:

-Pool has air in the system
-Equipment loses prime
-You see cracks
-Pool deck is sinking or lifting
-There are soggy spots around the pools
-You add water more than once a week
-Pool loses more than regular evaporation
 

 

 

 

In the heat of the summer your pool can seem to lose water faster than usual. The bucket test helps determine if the unusual rate of water loss is due to a high evaporation rate or a possible leak. Use the following steps to determine if your pool is leaking.

Test your pool for a leak with the Bucket Test.

In case of rain, repeat the test.

Test is not valid after 24 hours.

Evaporation will occur at the same rate regardless of the area of water. A bucket will lose a quarter inch of water as fast as a swimming pool loses a quarter inch of water.

If the pool is leaking, AquaRama Pools & Spas leak detection can expertly determine if the leak is in the structure, plumbing, or accessories, and isolate the leak to minimize the required repair expense.

 

Preparing your pool for a professional leak detection

Pool needs to be Clear and Clean, Not Green

In most cases, it is recommended to have the pool vacuumed spotless prior to your detection. Leaks as large as 1" in diameter have been missed until the dirt covering them was vacuumed or brushed away. Make sure the water is clean and not green. If it is green, the water could contain molds, fungus, larvae, and other contaminants that could make you sick, besides making it almost impossible to test.
