How to Detect a Leaking Swimming Pool

by Pool Builders on 08-30-2010 in Articles

Pools are popular outdoor renovations that convert gardens into warm and pleasurable spaces. Pools are perfect remodeling projects for the whole family to relax and enjoy together. Working as beautiful focal water points, pools improve the sunny season fun vibe of your backyard day after day.

A pool layout must factor in safety regulations and garden measurements to create a size and shape that fits your garden. Garden furniture, decks, stone walks, and plants will define the pool vicinity and boost the overall beauty of this focal water feature.

Yet outdoor renovations are more than pool and deck remodeling - they are also about maintaining your house leak free.

Stats disclose that 1 in 20 swimming pools leak as much as one thousand gallons each day. Leaking swimming pools are big water squanders - early leak diagnosis will help to save water and bring down your water bills.

Find below the 3 major reasons of water depletion from swimming pools:

Plumbing Leaks
The filter and pump device of your swimming pool are chronic leak sources. Search for moist stains and water puddles below the filter and pump device. You may also want to turn on the pumping device and look for any leak formation. Contact your local plumbing contractor for immediate repair in case you notice a plumbing leak.

Evaporation and Splattering
Your pool is losing a lot of water due to evaporation. Enclose your swimming pool when not in use to minimize evaporation. Often people in the pool spray and waste more water. Avert unnecessary spraying by not overfilling your pool.

Swimming Pool Surface
After eliminating water leaks, check out the pool shell for water escape. Signs of a drippy surface may array from damp concrete deck, a collapsing structure, a cracked shell or loose tiles.
