frequently asked questions

At LeakXperts, we understand that a well-maintained swimming pool is an essential part of your home, providing endless hours of fun and relaxation. That’s why our team of professionals is dedicated to offering top-notch residential pool leak detection and repair services. We know that homeowners have many questions about pool leaks, and we’re here to provide the answers you need. Let’s dive into the most frequently asked questions regarding pool leaks, residential pool leak detection services, and minor pool repairs.

Detecting and repairing pool leaks early can save you significant time, money, and stress in the long run. Leaks can lead to more severe problems, such as structural damage, increased water bills, and potential harm to your pool equipment. Make sure you schedule professional pool leak detection services as soon as possible.

There are many indicators of water leaks in pools and spas. These include an increase in your water bills or physical cracks in your pool decking, walls, or flooring. Other signs of a water leak include pooling water or damp ground in the areas around your pool.

There also may be a leak if you notice wetness in places that aren’t usually wet or warping, discoloration, or excessive condensation on walls, roofs, and windows around your pool.

Many leaks can be detected by the bucket test — a fast and simple way to determine if water level changes are being caused by evaporation or an actual leak.

What you do is fill your pool to its normal operating level, then fill a bucket with pool water all the way to about one inch from the top, marking the water level on the exterior of the bucket.

Place the bucket on the first or second step of the pool, then shut off the pump and mark the water level on the wall of your pool. Resume normal pump operations. In 24 hours, compare the two levels. If they are the same, your pool’s water loss likely was caused by evaporation. But if they are different, there may be a water leak in your pool.

Water leaks in swimming pools and spas are no joke. Even a small leak can quickly grow and affect other areas beyond your pool, including the surrounding decking and ground and even the foundation of your home or business.

When it comes to pool leaks, time is money. That’s why you need to call LeaksXperts the moment you think there might be a water leak. Our quick-response teams will immediately be dispatched to your property to determine if there is a leak, where it is located, and what is the fastest and most cost-effective way to repair it. We will also identify the underlying cause of your leak and make recommendations for preventing future problems.

While some minor pool repairs can be performed by homeowners, it’s best to leave pool leak repair to the professionals. Our team at LeakXperts has the knowledge, experience, and tools necessary to accurately diagnose and repair leaks quickly and efficiently. Attempting to fix a leak without professional assistance could potentially worsen the problem and lead to more costly repairs down the line.
