Whether you have a tiled or liner pool? A new or old system our engineers will find that leak and fix it at a great price and as soon as possible, so you can get back to enjoying your pool.
If you are topping up more than 2 inches of water a week, it is safe to say your pool is loosing water. All pools loose some water through evaporation and outdoor pools can sometimes gain water from rain, meaning your water levels will fluctuate over time. Pools are obviously meant to be watertight but often due to age parts of the pool will begin to deteriorate such as sealants, tiles can shift due to natural ground movement and liners can get torn. Frost and incorrect use of equipment can also be culprits when it comes to leak so regular maintenance and correct winter close downs will help to protect against leaks.
The leak may only be slight however over time this can affect the ground works and cause other issues which is why we advise leaks are dealt with straight away to prevent any long term more expensive issues from occurring.
Blue Cube Pools offer leak detection services which include, pressure tests, leak dye testing or a dive.
The pressure test works by pushing air into your system to see if the pressure drops this enables us to track where the pressure is dropping and therefore find your pool leak. Once the air is in the system we can use headphones and a giant ‘stethoscope’, to listen for air escaping which will enable us to pinpoint the leak.
The leak dye test is very effective in pinpointing where a leak is coming from especially from pipes and equipment.
In some circumstances it may be necessary to dive to investigate cracked tiles, torn liners and the main drain.
Do the bucket test, you may have heard of this before but it is a simple way to check whether you have a leak. Simply place a bucket of water beside the pool and mark both the water in the bucket and the pool water level. Wait 24 hours then check the loss of both. If the pool loses more water than the bucket, then you have a leak.
