How Can I Tell if My Swimming Pool is Leaking in Mission Valley?

9/6/2022 (Permalink)

Dog enjoys splashing in a swimming pool at home. We are leaders in water damage restoration services in San Diego.

The Environmental Protection Agency reports that leaking swimming pools may weaken your home’s foundation and lose thousands of gallons of water each month. Our Mission Valley East team offers these helpful tips from the EPA to determine if your pool is leaking:

  • Grab a clear container and a marker
  • During the test period, turn off the pool auto-fill, do not manually add water to the pool, and avoid splashing water out of the pool
  • Put the container on the pool steps and mark the water level on the outside of the container
  • Now, fill the container with pool water up to the mark you just made so the levels match
  • Mark the water level inside the container
  • Now, wait and give evaporation time to work, usually two to three days. If it rains or is windy, you’ll have to perform the test again.
  • Place the container on the pool steps. If the water in the pool is lower than the water in the container, you have a leak
  • If both the pool level and the container water levels are the same, you do not have a leak
