The Leak Science Process

Leak Prone Areas

This illustration highlights just some of the areas prone to swimming pool leaks. Hover the cursor or select each red dot for more details about the leak prone area.

Therapy Line Leak

Here we can see broken fittings and pipes. This is one of the hardest leaks to locate.

Main Drain Leak

The main drain is the lowest point in the pool & presents the potential for the largest loss of water if it is leaking.

Pool Light

We see leaks in the light niche, in the conduit where the cord enters the niche, or around the niche where it is mounted to the wall of the pool.

Skimmer Leak

We see water loss around the mount of the skimmer where it meets the surface of the pool, also the connecting pipes under the skimmer tend to leak and break

Inlet Pipes to Pool and Spa

These pipes cause a lot of water loss and may only leak when pool runs. Overlapping tree roots and bad plumbing workmanship generally cause issues here.

Broken Wall Return Fitting Leak

These are very common in the pool and spa and tend to cause a large amount of water loss.

 

Surface Crack Leak

These leaks go undetected for long periods of time as they do not always show themselves.

Leaking Water Feature Line

Water features can leak in various places. We see them leak in the basins and the piping going up through the water feature.

Plumbing Line Leak

Because pools have so much plumbing, every pipe buried underground is susceptible to leaks at some point in time.

Water Level Can Leak

Common causes of leaks here at the water leveler can include age, material of can, soil conditions.

Broken Pool Plumbing from Equipment

Sometimes the plumbing in, under or around your pool doesn’t leak at all. Leaks in your pool equipment can have a large impact on water loss.

What is Leak Detection?

To the untrained eye a swimming pool leak can be difficult to find. The biggest threat of leaks is their ability to remain unseen, costing hundreds of dollars each day. The most common form of the leak detection process uses a compressed air system to pressurize the water pipes. The air displaces the water until a leak is found and the air pressure disperses.

Swimming pool leak detection is a highly specialized trade.  We use leak detection technology that lets us find even the most difficult leaks that are often hidden underground beneath plumbing or pool decking. Not all leak detection companies utilize this technology and equipment, leading to jack-hammering up your pool decking to manually search for the leak. This approach ends up costing the homeowners more time and money, and more unsightly holes in the deck than necessary.

In addition to the specialized training in swimming pool leak detection , and the use of state of the equipment, our technicians also  have years of experience in all phases swimming pool repair and remodeling, giving them the insight to fully understand complex workings of your pool.  When you can hire Leak Science you can have every confidence we will locate your swimming pool leak.
