Do you have a Pool Leak?

Don't Wait - Prepare your pool for summer today!
Constantly refilling the pool wastes time and money.


Signs And Symptoms to Look For:

  • More than 1/4" of water loss in your pool/spa over 24 hours.
  • Algae forming too soon after a chemical treatment.
  • Loose or falling tiles, or cracks.
  • Pool/spa has settled into the ground, and cracks appear on the deck or in the shell.
  • Adding water on a daily basis or auto fill continuously running.
  • Low chemical count due to fresh water being added
  • Higher loss when pool runs, or air bubbles appearing from return lines.
  • Pump not pulling prime properly.
  • Standing water, mushy spots, or uneven grass growth around the pool/spa area.

Try The Bucket Test

Bucket Test

  • Bring the pool water to normal level.
  • Fill a five gallon bucket with pool water to about four inches from the top.
  • Place bucket on the first or second step of the pool. Ensure that the bucket is immersed in the pool about half way.
  • Mark the water level inside the bucket.
  • Shut off pump and auto fill then mark pool level on the outside of the bucket.
  • Resume normal pool pump operation, but leave auto fill off.
  • After 24 hours, compare the two water levels. If the pool water goes down more than the inside water level there is probably a leak. If the levels are the same, only evaporation has occurred.
