The best way to determine if your pool or spa is losing water is to conduct a simple bucket test.
To conduct a bucket test in your pool or spa:
The distance between the marks inside the bucket gives you the water lost by evaporation. If the marks on the outside of the bucket are farther apart than the inside of the bucket, that means that your pool or spa lost water separately from evaporation. This is the largest indicator of a pool or spa leak that we typically find.
If you conduct a bucket test and find that you lost more water on the outside of the bucket, our leak detection services can help you find your pool or spa leaks quickly and easily.
Your pool or spa typically has a water leveler installed to help your pool stay at a constant height. During normal use, your water leveler will turn on when your pool loses water from swimming and evaporation.
If you notice your water leveler is running constantly, this is often an indication that your pool or spa is leaking water. These leaks can be hard to find on your own, but our leak detection services can find leaks in pools and spas so you don't have to worry
If your pool equipment has been running incorrectly lately, it can often be a sign of broken pipe allowing water to leak out and air to leak in.
If you notice an increase in the air in your pool or spa system, our leak detection equipment can help you find broken pipes in no time.
If a pool or spa leak has gone unnoticed for a while, it can saturate the ground around it leaving it appearing wet at all hours of the day.
While wet ground is not always an indication of a leak, if have concerns it's better to get peace of mind quickly. Leak Hunters offers leak detection services to help you in finding water leaks and preventing further damage to your yard.
When your pool or spa is leaking, you will often have large increases in your water bill. Typically symptoms of a leak may not present themselves for a while and your water bill may be one of the first places you notice a leak.
If you have had a sudden increase in your water bill and own a pool, it may be worth scheduling an appointment for our leak detection services in order to help you in discovering where all your water is going.
