How can I tell if my pool is leaking?

When the days are warm and the nights cool evaporation is at it's highest. If you are not using pool heater or solar panel, pool shouldn't lose more than 1" per week . Using the ordinary 5 gallon plastic bucket you can perform this simple test to determine if your pool is leaking:

  • Bring pool water to normal level.
  • Fill bucket with pool water to about 2-4 inches from top.
  • Place bucket on 1st or 2nd step of pool.
  • Mark water level on inside of bucket.
  • Mark pool water level on outside of bucket.
  • Resume normal pump operation.
  • After 48 hours, compare the 2 water levels.
  • If the pool water (outside mark) goes down more than inside water level, there is probably a leak.
  • In case of rain repeat the test.
  • This test can be done with gunite, vinyl or fiberglass pools. If your test indicates that pool is losing water, please contact us and we will gladly help you locate the leak and perform necessary repairs.
