Leak Detection Process
Our pool leak detection service involves a 3 step process.
Visual Inspection & Dye Testing
Our highly trained team will preform a meticulous dye test and visual inspection both around your pool and also underwater. This process is used to identify leaks in the pool surface structure, in and around the weir, around the pool jets and inside and around the pool light.
Pool Pressure Testing
Next the pools suction, return and solar panel pipes are pressurized. The pool piping systems ability to hold a constant air pressure indicates whether or not there is a leak in the specific pipe line. Our team is fully capable of pressure testing even the most complex pool plumbing systems.
Electronic Leak Detection
Should a specific pipe system fail the pressure test. A leak detection technician will pump a tracer gas into the leaking pipe system and then using the latest electronic gas leak detection technology, pinpoint each individual leak accurately without the need for excessive digging.
Signs your pool is leaking.
- Unusually high water bills.
- Visable cracks in the pool.
- Damp spots on grass around pool.
- Cracked/sunken paving around pool.
- Pool always needs filling up.
- System not getting proper suction.
The Bucket Test
Place a bucket on the top step in your pool. Next add water into the bucket until the water inside the bucket and the water level in your pool are exactly the same.
Wait 24 hours and then check to see if the water level in the pool is lower than the water level in the bucket. The difference between the two would be rate of water loss in your pool. If you do this test and the water level in the pool always matches the water level in the bucket then you do not have a leak in your pool - your water loss is a result of evaporation.
