There is nothing fun about having a pool leak. Not one single thing. However, it doesn’t have to derail your fun or your budget. Often, it is quite easy to find and repair a swimming pool leak.
The first thing you want to do if you suspect you have a pool leak is to make sure that you have a leak and it is not a result of evaporation. To determine if evaporation is the culprit you will need to perform a bucket test. A bucket test takes 24 hours to complete, so make sure you have that window of time when there is no rain. A quick measurement after the 24 hour period will be able to tell you if in fact your water loss is due to evaporation or you do in fact have a leak.

If you have checked all of the above areas and you have still not found the source of the leak, it’s time to contact a professional.
Repairing a swimming pool leak as soon as it is detected is very important. Leaks that are ignored become a bigger hassle to repair the longer it exists. The repair process is determined by the cause of the leak.
