You should also perform a “Bucket Test”. You can do this test yourself for free and it will conclusively tell you if you have a pool leak in only 24 hours. It doesn’t take any special skills, will only take 15 minutes of your time and can be done with a few common household items. You could also ask your pool man to do the test for you

If you have problems downloading the form or understanding the directions, you can call the office at 858-566-2700 and we can talk you through it or email you the form.

​Why is doing the "Bucket Test" important?

Before spending your hard earned money hiring a leak detection company, you will want to know for sure that you have a leak. The bucket test will definitively tell you if you have a leak within 24 hours and also eliminates the effects of evaporation.

​How much water should my pool be losing to evaporation?

Many factors effect evaporation rates. However, generally speaking you should not lose more than ½ inch per week due to evaporation. If you are losing more water than that, we recommend you complete a “Bucket Test” to determine if you have a leak.

​Top 10 Pool Leak Indicators

  1. Constant low water level in your pool.

  2. You add more than ½ inch of water to your pool per week.

  3. Your water bill goes up dramatically without explanation.

  4. Your hear your automatic pool fill device constantly running.

  5. Your pool deck has a wet area that never goes away.

  6. There are a lot of bubbles coming out of the pool return line.

  7. You can’t keep Chlorine, Conditioner or Salt in the pool.

  8. There are visible cracks in the pool or skimmer.

  9. You have continual algae problems that will not go away.

  10. The area around the pool equipment is always wet.

​Why Should I Hire Your Company to Find My Pool Leak?

We have located and repaired more than a thousand leaks and each truck we send out carries over $10,000 of specialty equipment designed specifically to find leaks in pools, spas and water features. Unfortunately, other professionals claim to do leak detection, but very few have the experience, the right tools or the ability to repair the leak after the location is identified.   We are proud that over 90% of our business come from referrals from other swimming pool professionals.

​What Specialty Tools Do You Use to Find the Leaks?

The most important tool we have is our experience. We use specialized pipe plugs, water & air pressure induction gear, underwater video cameras, electronic leak detection directional indicators, underwater video inspection cameras, specialized leak detection dye, ultra-sensitive sub-surface microphones and underwater unidirectional and directional hydrophones.

​Once You Find the Leak, Can Your Repair it too?

Yes. After finding the leak we will be happy to provide a separate quote to repair it.

Am I Required to Repair the Leak with Your Company?​

No. You are free to hire us to repair the leak, hire another company to repair it, or repair it yourself
