Do you suspect a leak in your pool/spa? Even a small leak in your pool can cost you in water replenishment, chemical loss, expensive heating bills, strain on your equipment and the hassle of filling your pool every day. Pool Werks has the necessary equipment and expertise to find the leak and create an action plan. Below are the steps that we take in determining the source of the leak:
Pressure Test – this test is the first step in leak detection. It involves the technician testing all the plumbing lines for integrity. This process checks that there is no water loss from your plumbing system. If a leak is found, we move to an Underground Sound Test.
Dye Test – once we confirmed that the plumbing network is sound, we move to a dye test. We test any vulnerabilities we see in the pool/spa (cracks, tears in the liner, light housings, etc)
Underground Sound Test – if a leak in the plumbing is found, we use a hydrophone to locate where the leak is underground.
Keep in mind, finding leaks is a process of elimination. If your pool/spa has multiple leaks from different sources, we may need to perform one or all the steps to completely eliminated the leak(s). Once the leak(s) are located, we will provide you with a quote to fix the issue.
