Take the Bucket Test
When a Katy pool owner contacts us our first piece of advice is to perform a bucket test to save you money and determine rather your pool is losing water because of evaporation or if there is a more significant issue that is causing the water to leak out.
Simply place a 5-gallon bucket from your nearest Home Depot on the second step of your pool add a heavy rock and then add water to the bucket. Once the water level in the bucket aligns with the water level of your pool cut two 1-inch pieces of electrical tape one for the inside of the bucket the 2nd piece goes on the outside even with the pool's water level. Now turn off your pool pump and come back in 24 hours to see if the water in the bucket and in the pool has decreased by the same amount, if so, you likely do not have a pool leak. The water your loosing is likely from evaporation. However, if the water level in the pool is significantly less then you likely have a leak. You may want to test once with the pool pump on and once with it off to see if this is the cause of your pool leak.
Once you have determined through the bucket test that your pool does have a leak you want to call a leak detection expert who can come out and pinpoint where the leak is and determine the best course of action to repair the leak. There is also pool dye which can help you determine if there is a leak.
Our Pool Leak Detection Process
Pool Plumbing Leaks
Once you have performed the bucket or dye test and believe you have a leak the best thing you can do is call a leak detection company. At Katy Swimming Pool Services understands the importance of detecting a leak quickly and uses state-of-the-art technology to make sure we pinpoint the leak correctly. When you schedule us to come out, we will arrive on time and conduct pressure and vessel testing before recommending the best way to alleviate the problem. We ask that your pool water be as clean as possible to easier spot the leak. Before our team arrives to your Katy resident please remove leaves, grass clipping, and debris from the surface. To find out if there is a pool leak due to plumbing, we close off the orifices of the plumbing to build up pressure to see if there is a broken line. Normally we pressure test for 20 minutes at a 20 PSI to ensure the test results are accurate. If we find that a plumbing line in your pool has broken, we can locate it using a sonar device to listen for air and water that is managing to escape in your underground pipes. We may also use other methods to locate broken plumbing. If you have a leak in the plumbing system this can be difficult for most Katy homeowners to find and repair as most pool plumbing is housed underground. Most pool plumbing lasts 15 to 20 years however one of the biggest causes of pool plumbing leaks is that your pool was installed with a straight pipe instead of installing a pool return pipe with a 90 bend. This will almost always cause a leak in the future. Once we discover the pipes are broken, we will give you the best solution for replacing your pipes.
