Is it Evaporation or a Leak? A Pool Inspection Guide by Atlantic Leak Detection of New Jersey

Is your pool losing water?  Summer’s high heat leads to evaporation, so that swimming pools can lose a few inches a week through evaporation.  Exactly how much loss is normal depends on temperature and surface area, but normal loss is around two inches per week.  Is your swimming pool losing more water than that?  Then you might have a leak.  Finding a swimming pool leak can be difficult, but New Jersey’s Atlantic Leak Detection can conduct a thorough pool inspection and determine if there are any leaks.  In addition to finding leaks, but can also fix them, using an unobtrusive method that minimizes any damage to your home or yard.

How we inspect your pool depends on the type of pool that you have. If you believe you have a leak in the plumbing, we start with a thorough inspection of that area.  If you think that the leak might be in the pool’s surface itself, then we can inspect it the surface, using a diver to examine the finish.  We can inspect and repair Gunite, Vinyl, Concrete, and Fiberglass pools, and we strive to use the least-invasive methods out there to make sure that we do not destroy your pool or yard in the leak-detection process.

In addition to water loss, there are some other warning signs of leaks.  If you can see any cracks in your pool’s shell, tile, or coping, there might be a leak.  In addition, if your pool deck appears to be sinking or lifting, it could indicate movement that could cause a leak If you have any large air bubbles in your pumps, that is a sign of water loss, which could mean a leak.  If you are having to use more pool chemicals, that could signal a leak. Do you get large air bubbles in your pumps?  Have you had to increase your use of pool chemicals?  If you suspect a leak, call Atlantic Leak Detection for a pool inspection.
