What to Do If You Find a Leak in Your Pool
Finding a leak in your pool can be an extremely stressful experience. If you do confirm that there is, indeed, a leak in your pool, you’ll want to take proper action right away. You will need pool maintenance as soon as possible, whether your pool is located in Temecula or beyond.
Here is a checklist of what do to when you suspect your pool may have a leak:
- Confirm that it is an actual leak and not evaporation or from another source. Pools will naturally lose some water due to evaporation, backwashing through pool filters and splash out. If you find that you are replacing more than two inches of water a week, that’s a sign that there may be a leak.
- Double check with a simple test. The simplest way to double check that a leak is occurring is to use a piece of tape to mark the water level. If the pool has lost more than a quarter of an inch within 24 hours, you can be sure that there is a leak.
- Identify the source of the leak. You’ll want to take a closer look at the following areas to see if you can identify the source of the leak: the equipment pad (filter, pump, heater, valves), patches of wet soil, and tears in the liner.
- Call in the experts. Even if you cannot locate the source of the leak, it is important to contact a pool maintenance professional to fix the leak. Some leaks may not be identifiable without state of the art pool maintenance equipment.
Follow these steps when you suspect you have a leak, and your pool will be back to working order quickly!
