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 here in Phoenix 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.

 

Structural 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, swimming pool leaks are tough to locate even for the experts. The biggest threat of water leaks in Phoenix and Scottsdale is their ability to remain unseen, costing hundreds and thousands of dollars each month in water bills. Leaks are identified in pipes by isolating a line from the other lines and inducing air or a compressed gas into that line. What we are looking for is a drop in pressure on that line. After we know which line doesn’t hold pressure we go out and listen underground with our acoustic listening equipment. At this point we are listening for air, water or air bubbles escaping from the location of the break. The tricky part for us is getting as close to that noise we are hearing and figuring out what it is that were actually hearing. Finding that noise can be extremely deceptive.

Other methods are with using dye, we are looking for places where the dye gets pulled into a place whether its a crack, void or plumbing inlet or outlet as the water is escaping through that area. This method takes some practice as well. We also will use helium tracer gas and a gas detector. Helium can escape through the smallest cracks and will come up through the ground.

Swimming pool leak detection is a highly specialized trade.  We use advanced leak detection technology that lets us find even the most difficult leaks that are often hidden underground beneath plumbing or pool decking. We use advanced acoustic equipment and our proven process to find these leaks accurately. This equipment allows us to locate leaks sometimes within just inches of the location. This makes us a great asset to Phoenix area homeowners because, we end up not tearing up as much to gain access to the leak and make the repair. This reduces the put back and doesn’t leave large scars around your pool.

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

"I have had a leak somewhere near my pool filler... After filling the pool manually with the hose since then, I finally got fed up. I tried plumbers and seismic leak detection companies, but couldn't ever get a resolution. I found Leak Science online and spoke with Ryan, who I could tell right away was very knowledgeable about this line of work. He quoted me a fair price for the detection services and came out for the appointment, determined to find where the leak was, and even offered me a favorable discount because the leak was apparently easy to find. The work was done carefully and even though I think he encountered more problems than he anticipated, he completed the job for the price quoted. I am so looking forward to having my auto filler for my pool turned back on again! Thanks, Ryan!"

"I highly recommend Leak Science. I called Ryan late yesterday afternoon and explained that our pool guys haven't been able to prime the pump to our pool and thought there might be a leak somewhere. Despite having a busy schedule today, Ryan fit us in and was out here first thing this morning. By 11:30 am the leak had already been located and repaired (Ryan discovered that a giant hole had been punctured in the underground pipe) and our pump is now back up and running. Ryan was courteous, helpful, professional, and knowledgable. We SO appreciate him coming out so quickly. His service fees were also very reasonable!"

"Spoke with Ryan on Wednesday. He came out on Thursday and found the leak. Prepared me for the worse and then pleasantly surprised me with good news. Never met the guy, but completely trust him. His buddy Chris that did our work today was a great guy and the job was done neat and tidy... Thanks Ryan and Chris!"
