Pool Leak Facts
Now, 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 air and water temperature, humidity, and wind can have an effect. This could be causing you to lose up to ¼ inch of water a day or about 2 inches per week.
You may have a leak if:
- Pool has air in the system
- Equipment looses prime
- You see cracks
- Pool Deck is sinking or lifting
- There are soggy spots around the pool
- You add water more than once a week
- Pool looses more than regular evaporation
Preparing your pool for a professional leak detection
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 the leak 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.
