The moment that you find a leak in your swimming pool can be a horrendous experience. And the issue is, leaks can occur even if your pool is well maintained. At Southern Illinois Epoxy, we address the root cause of different types of leaks so that your family can enjoy the pool once again.
Sometimes, the signs of a leaking pool are not obvious. If there is standing water near the pool or equipment pad, that is a sure sign there is something wrong. Here are more subtle signs of a leaking swimming pool:
The pool loses more than ¼” of water a day, abnormal water consumption, algae growth, water discoloration, inconsistent or abnormal chemical levels, loose tiles, cracked cement, strange gurgling sounds, water corrosion around pumps, and soggy soil.
Leakage can be caused by mechanical issues, structural damage, plumbing issues, or normal wear and tear. We address the root cause and refinish the pool to ensure that the leak is thoroughly repaired.
It is critical to act fast upon noticing the leak as it can seep into the ground and damage the surrounding property. Additionally, if the leak is left unrepaired it can cause more damage to the pool, and even increase the cost of utilities and the repair itself. A leak can waste almost 1,000 gallons a day, you can only imagine that kind of water bill.
