Clues to a Potential Leak
Your pool can lose around a ¼ inch of water a day from heat and evaporation. Many people have an automatic fill device making it even harder to determine if your pool is losing more water than average. These tips will help you determine if you have a potential leak:
• A sudden increase in your water bill
• Puddles of water and soggy grass outside the pool
• An increased need for chemicals
• New cracks on the deck (a result of the ground settling)
Give the Leak Bucket Test a Try
If you are still uncertain about whether to call Pools by Signature, give the bucket test a try. The leak bucket test is a simple and accurate way to identify a leak in your pool.
Step 1 – Bring your pool to its normal water level.
Step 2 – Fill an empty bucket with pool water to one inch from the top.
Step 3 – Place the filled bucket on the first or second step of your pool. (You can add weights if it starts to float.)
Step 4 – Mark the water level inside your bucket.
Step 5 – Mark the water level of the pool on the outside of the bucket or on the pool wall.
Step 6 – Turn the pump on.
Step 7 – Operate your pool like normal for 24 hours.
Step 8 – Compare the levels. If the pool water level goes down more than the bucket water level, you probably have a leak.
