For many pool owners the day does eventually arrive where they get that unpleasant feeling that they have been adding more water than usual to their pool. They then ask themselves, do I have a leak?
Sometimes it’s obvious, as the water level drops so fast that you can almost watch it going down, by a foot or more each day. More often however, it’s a gradual water loss, and it makes the pool owner question whether it’s a leak, or just evaporation and splash-out.
Either way, the potential issue cannot be ignored. If it is a leak, failing to repair it will lead to increased water and chemical expenses, as well as potential costly water damage to other parts of your pool and property.
Signs that Your Pool May be Leaking:
Air bubbles coming out of your return jets
Pump loses prime or has difficulty maintaining prime
You have cracks forming
Pool deck is sinking or lifting
Areas around pool are wet or have pooling water
You add water more than once a week
Pool consistently loses more than half an inch a day. It’s not uncommon to lose ¼ inch of water a day to evaporation and splash-out, but more than that could indicate a leak
