Pool leaks are a common occurrence, no matter how well you maintain your swimming pool. Pool water evaporates when exposed to direct sunlight. But if the water level drops by over half an inch per day, something is wrong. Your pool leaks, and it would be best if you fixed it before it worsens.

Never ignore any signs of a pool leak. If you do, the subsoil will weaken over time with water sipping into it for long. And it results in structural instability, which might occasion shattering damage if left unresolved. You don’t have to go that route where you’ll have to invest heavily in a new pool structure.  Southern Illinois Epoxy can help you inspect and repair your pool so it performs optimally.

What Are The Signs Of A Pool Leak?

Here are some of the common signs you can look out for to tell when your pool is leaking.

  1. A drastic drop in water level.
  2. Stagnant water outside the pool.
  3. Wet areas around the pool even when there is no rain.
  4. Presence of moisture on pipes and the pump.
  5. Algae growth despite treating the water.
  6. Cracks on the pool deck.

The Complete Guide to Pool Leak Detection

Tracing pool leaks can be so challenging if you don’t have the knowledge to identify them. Hiring a pro to inspect your pool can help speed up the process and offer accurate solutions. However, some pool leak detection tasks can be a DIY thing. You can use a pool leak detection dye to pinpoint the place where the leakage is occurring and use DIY guidelines to do the repairs.

This is how it works. You switch off the pump and wait for the water to still. Then gently squirt a drop of the dye at the place you suspect the leakage is happening. If you notice the dye moving and disappearing into a crack, you have spotted the source of the leak. You can repair the pool by sealing the crack using a pool leak sealer suitable for your pool type.

Here are other pool leak detection methods you can use:

  1. Inspecting the ground adjacent to the pool walls

Keenly check the ground around your swimming pool for signs of wetness. Probably there will be grass growing at the place if you can’t see the ground. But the presence of green grass, especially during summer, is a pointer to a leak.

  1. Inspecting the pool equipment

Moisture on the pump, pipes, and the electrical system can be a sign of leakage. But before you conclude so, wipe the equipment with a dry cloth. Check again after about 15 minutes. If you still see moisture on the equipment, then that is the source of the leak.

  1. Identifying signs of tearing

Tears are common in vinyl liner pools. Check for tears in the skimmers, fittings, steps, etc. Skimmers do come off the concrete in a pool, resulting in leakages. So check if the skimmer is intact. If you spot cracks, shoot some dye around them to see if it gets sucked up.

  1. Use of indelible ink

Mark the water level on the wall using indelible ink. Check after 24 hours to see if there is a drop below the mark. An excessive reduction of water signifies leakage in the pool.

  1. Use advanced technology

You may not have the technology pool repair experts use in detecting leakages. Well established contractors use pipe inspection cameras to detect sources of leaks in a pool and fix them quickly. Consider hiring a camera if you don’t seem to get the point where your pool is leaking.
