Pools, Patios and Porches has a proven track record for finding and repairing any type of leak in any pool. We use advanced technology including sonar to accurately locate and repair anything from holes and tears in vinyl liners, cracks in fittings and pool equipment, and even digging and repairing underground plumbing leaks. We have several options for finding leaks including, vinyl detection only, pressure testing, and a comprehensive leak detection service. We recommend starting with your own Leak Detection Bucket Test – scroll down for instructions.
Leak Detection Bucket Test
To help us in locating the leak and to minimize the cost of this service, you can perform a simple bucket test. Fill a 5 gallon bucket almost full with pool water. Set it on the shallow end steps. Mark the inside of the bucket at the water line, and also the outside of the bucket at the pool’s water line. With the system running for 24 hours, check the levels of the water and write down the information. Then with the system NOT running for 24 hours, check the levels again and write down the information. This test will help us to determine if the leak is in the plumbing/equipment or structure of the pool which will maximize our chances of a successful detection and repair.
