Leak Detection

Leak Detection

3 Step process

We not only test the pipes using tracer gas and pressure testing equipment but we also do a full assessment of the pool structure as water can move through the smallest of openings.

1. Visual Inspection & Dye Testing

Our highly trained team will preform a meticulous dye test and visual inspection both around your pool and also underwater. This process is used to identify leaks in the pool surface structure, in and around the weir, around the pool jets and inside and around the pool light.

2. Pool Pressure Testing

Next the pools suction, return and solar panel pipes are pressurized. The pool piping systems ability to hold a constant air pressure indicates whether or not there is a leak in the specific pipe line. Our team is fully capable of pressure testing even the most complex pool plumbing systems.

3. Electronic Leak Detection

A leak detection technician then uses a tracer gas and the latest in high-tech gas leak detectors to accurately pinpoint the location of each individual leak present in the problematic pipe system.

Signs a pool is leaking
  • Unusually high water bills.
  • Visable cracks in the pool.
  • Damp spots on grass around pool.
  • Cracked/sunken paving around pool.
  • Pool always needs filling up.
  • System not getting proper suction.

The Bucket Test

Place a bucket on the top step in your pool. Fill the bucket to the same level as the water level in your pool.

the bucket test

Wait 24 hours, then check to see if the water level in the pool has dropped below the water level in the bucket. The difference between the two levels indicates the rate of water loss in your pool.

A difference of 10mm or more between bucket & pool water levels is a strong indication your pool IS leaking and lossing water.

Anything less the 10mm and your water loss is as a result of evaporation.

Our leak detection service is the fast, accurate & non-destructive (no excessive digging) solution to all your leak detection problems.
