Preparing Your Pool for Leak Detection

Is your pool losing water at an alarming rate, and you suspect there might be a leak? Determining the exact source of the leak can be a bit of a hassle, especially if you don’t have the right equipment. The good news is that LeakXperts is here to help. Our specialists can identify, locate, and repair pool leaks without delay.

If you’re getting ready to call us for a pool leak detection service, you may be wondering if there’s anything you need to know before making the call and before our technicians arrive at your doorstep. Below, we’ll show you how to prepare your pool for leak detection, ensuring a smooth and efficient service call.

Understand How Much Water Your Pool Is Losing

Before calling us for a service appointment, it’s beneficial to gather as much information as possible to help us pinpoint the issue accurately. One of the key pieces of information we’ll ask for is how much water your pool loses in a 24-hour period. This information gives us valuable insight into the severity of the problem.

While preparing your pool for leak detection, perform a simple bucket test. Then, use our pool water loss calculator to determine how many gallons of water your pool is losing. This data will be invaluable when you schedule a service with our team, as it allows us to better understand your specific situation.

Other Information You Will Be Asked For

In order to help you prepare your pool for leak detection, our team will ask you about the following information in addition to how much water your pool lost within 24 hours:

  • The pool’s material (fiberglass, gunite, marcite, or vinyl)
  • Whether the pool includes a spa
  • Where the pool equipment is located
  • How many pumps there are
  • How many skimmers there are
  • Whether the pool seems to leak more when the equipment is on or off
  • How old the pool is

Providing this information during your call will help our team prepare for pool leak detection and ensure a swift resolution to your pool issues.

Clean & Vacuum Your Pool Before Your Service Appointment

We understand that life can get busy, and pool maintenance may fall by the wayside. However, it’s essential to ensure your pool is as clean as possible before leak detection. Debris and algae can obstruct our view and make it challenging to locate leaks accurately. A clean pool allows us to perform our job more efficiently, saving you time and money. So, one of the most important steps you can take in preparing your pool for leak detection is to clean and vacuum up any leaves and dirt from the bottom of your pool.

Make Sure Your Pool Isn’t Green

A green pool can be a clear indication of water imbalance or a filtration issue. While preparing for pool leak detection, it’s essential to ensure your pool water is clear and properly balanced. A green pool can be misleading, as algae growth can mimic water loss symptoms. Addressing this issue beforehand will help us focus on leak detection rather than water quality.

Fill Your Pool With Water Until It Reaches Its Normal Level

As you prepare your pool for leak detection, make sure your pool is filled up to its normal level. It’s important to have the water at its usual height so our pool leak repair experts can assess accurately if there are any leaks.
