Progressive Leak Testing
Pool leaks can be a real pain for property managers and homeowners. Pool water that drips onto the floor below is especially difficult to deal with because it leaves an impression in concrete, which will eventually lead to more serious problems if left untreated.
Successful leak detection and repair relies on information gathering, which consists of progressive leak testing pools- detecting. The process starts with looking for leaks in your swimming pool's plumbing system as well as internal parts like filters or pipes that lead into it from outside the home; once these areas have been pinpointed then they will need to be fixed before going any further - this includes hiring a contractor who has both expertise and resources necessary pool leak- detecting such that you can feel confident knowing everything possible was done during the repair.
Prevent Leaking Pool
Pools are designed and built to be watertight, but the ground can shift, and/or parts of your pool can degrade or just plain wear out, causing leaks. Pools can leak through the fittings, accessories, plumbing, or sometimes right through the shell.
It is important to repair any water leaks or pool leaks quickly not only to save water and chemicals but to prevent undermining the pool’s overall structure and foundation. Even a small slow leak can create large “voids” or holes underground, which can cause the entire pool structure to shift out of level and crack.
Pool leaks can be difficult to spot, especially if your pool has an automatic fill device. If you suspect that your pool is leaking, you can confirm your suspicions by turning off your automatic filler. Then, fill a bucket with water, place it next to your pool, and detect how much the water level decreases over a few days.
If your pool’s water level decreases faster than your bucket’s, you might have a pool leak. Be cautious and watch the levels in your pools.
If your leak is quick, it can cause your water level to drop too low and cause damage to your pool’s equipment. Ensure that the water is well above your pool’s skimmer and intake lines.
Identify a Leak in Your Pool
There are different types of pools, so there may be a few different areas leaking at once. The easiest way to find a leak in a pool is to splash water around and see if it starts disappearing from that area. It could also help to turn off all the lights in the pool, turn off the pumps, and take a small flashlight with you.
Shine it along the edges of your pool to see if water is sinking through. If you don't have time for these steps or find that there are too many leaks to figure out just by sight, then take a shop vacuum around your pool with you. Wherever the suction is pulling in the most water, that's where your leak is.
Signs your swimming pool is leaking include:
- Losing water at a faster rate than evaporation
- Cracks in your pool’s plaster
- Your pool’s system won’t start
Sometimes it can be difficult to tell if you have pool leaks, especially if you live in a hot area with high levels of evaporation. If you suspect your pool is leaking, the best way to confirm is to call a professional as soon as possible. Pool leaks can cause dramatic increases in water bills, damage pool equipment, and even weaken the structure of your pool.

Concrete Pool Deck Leak Repair
For a standard concrete deck leak repair, we cut the concrete deck and remove stones to expose the leak. Leak detection for a pool with patio stone or interlocking deck is often less expensive than leak detection for a standard concrete deck. In most cases, with a very little digging, we can expose the pool leak and begin the repair.
When more than one plumbing leak exists in the same line, a quotation will be presented at the time of discovery. Our experts will re-test the repair or fix, backfill the hole, and re-concrete or replace the patio stones.
