Most pool owners know when their pool is losing water, but sometimes it is hard to know for sure. Waiting to find the leak will cost you more money in adding water and chemicals. Leaks can be just about anywhere and finding them is what we do!
The swimming pool is viewed in basically three aspects:
2. Structure or Shell: The shell, or structure of the pool, is investigated with ultra sound listening equipment and by using pinpoint dye testing methods. Areas like the skimmer, main drain, light, & return fittings are inspected.
3. Above ground Plumbing and Equipment: (pumps, filters, etc): The above ground plumbing and equipment is also a very important aspect of a comprehensive leak test. Certain plumbing configurations can allow water loss without the homeowner’s knowledge.
What is allowable for evaporation?
Unfortunately there is no magic number or standard formula. There are many different variables in play that determine evaporation rates.
What most people do not know, is your pool has more water loss in the winter due to evaporation than it does in the summer.
Swimming Pool Plumbing Leaks
Pool leaks can be found anywhere in or outside of your swimming pool. You should first search for a leak in your entire filter system, to include the pump, filter, chlorinator, and heater.
If you have not found a leak in the filter system, it could be a cracked pipe underground as shown here. This type of hidden leak can create surging water bills and higher than normal pool chemical costs. These leaks can also be slow and go undetected for weeks, months, or even years. If in doubt, it is always best to have a professional check it out.
