Questions & Answers about Pool Leaks

Find answers to common questions about the services provided by Raytek Leak Detection.

How does a professional find a swimming pool leak?

A professional pool leak detector, like Raytek, uses advanced techniques and equipment to accurately detect leaks. This can range from underwater microphones, dyes to trace water flow, to video scopes that can visually inspect even the hardest-to-see places. These methods ensure a thorough detection process, far superior to manual checks. For pools with vinyl liners, a different approach involving an electric current is used to pinpoint the leak source.

Can I find a swimming pool leak myself?

While homeowners can perform basic tests, like the bucket test, to gauge if there's potential water loss, accurately detecting the exact location and cause of a leak requires specialized equipment and expertise. Self-diagnosis can sometimes lead to misidentification, especially with more complex leaks or subsurface solutions required. If you suspect a leak, it's always recommended to consult with a professional like Raytek for precise leak detection. Learn More

What are some problems a swimming pool leak can cause?

Swimming pool leaks, if left untreated, can lead to numerous problems. These include escalated water bills due to continuous water loss, damage to the pool's structural integrity, potential damage to surrounding areas or landscaping, and even compromising the balance of pool chemicals, which can make the water unsafe. Regular water leak detection checks can prevent these issues and ensure your pool remains in top condition. Learn More

How do I know if my swimming pool is leaking?

Some common signs of a pool leak include a rapid drop in water level, wet spots around the pool, or an unusually high water bill. If you're unsure about how to calculate gallons in a pool to check for discrepancies, you can conduct the bucket test. This test helps differentiate between normal pool evaporation and actual leaks. However, if you suspect a leak, it's always best to get a professional inspection to confirm and pinpoint the issue. Learn More
