Leak Detection for Your Pool

If you think that your pool may be leaking, you can run a bucket test in order to detect the leak. This simple process involves filling a bucket with water and placing it in your pool with lines drawn to monitor your water level. Did you know that evaporation can lower pool levels by about 3mm to 7mm every day (depending on sun and wind)? Splashing is also a common cause of water loss in a pool, so be sure to keep these in mind as well when performing a bucket test.

Leak Detection for Your Piping System

If you suspect a hidden leak in your plumbing system or your underground plumbing, you may be able to identify it with a meter test. Even though you must refrain from using any water for 30 minutes during this test, the numbers on your meter can help you determine if you’re experiencing water loss.

What Do I Do Next?

If you have run these tests and cannot explain the reason for water loss in your pool or plumbing line, we recommend that you call Australian Leak Detection right away.
