How to Check for a Pool Leak
There are several DIY methods to find out if your swimming pool is leaking. With some patience and a few household items, you can perform some tests to confirm whether or not you need leak repair services. While these tests are useful for determining if a leak exists, they do not confirm exactly where the leak is. If you have confirmed that your pool is leaking, contact Pool USA for a professional inspection where we can identify the source of the leak and get it fixed fast.
The Bucket Test
The bucket test is an easy method to check for pool leaks. Fill a bucket about two-thirds with pool water and mark the water level. Set the bucket on a pool step, ensuring it’s submerged to at least the same level as the pool’s water. Mark the water level on the outside of the bucket. After 24 hours, if the pool water level has dropped more than the bucket’s water level, this suggests a potential leak in the pool.
The Dye Test
The dye test is a common method used to identify the exact location of a pool leak. To conduct the test, first shut off the pool’s pump to still the water. Then, slowly release a small amount of pool-safe dye close to where you suspect a leak. If there’s a leak, the dye will be drawn towards it, giving a visual indication of the leak’s location. This test is particularly useful for detecting leaks in pool walls or around fixtures.
Check for Physical Signs of a Leak
Watch for a significant and unexplained drop in your pool water levels. Examine the pool’s shell and deck for cracks or gaps that could allow water to escape. Check for soggy spots, wet areas that don’t dry, or lush patches of grass near the pool area as these can indicate underground leaks. Needing to add more water or chemicals than usual is also a bad sign, as leaks can dilute the pool’s chemical balance.
