If you notice a larger than normal (more than 1/4 inch per day) decrease in pool water level, you have good reason to suspect a pool leak. If your pool has an automatic fill device, it might be harder to detect. Use these additional clues to help diagnose your pool leak likelihood:

  • Increased chemical demands (to treat new water that is added to the pool)
  • Increased water bills
  • Cracks in the deck resulting from settling earth
  • Unexplainable evidence of water outside the pool

A common reason for minimal water loss occurs with natural evaporation. To best determine if your pool is experiencing evaporation or water loss due to a serious leak that needs immediate attention, you can perform the "Bucket Test". Contact Today Pools and make an appointment today! Schedule a convenient time for our technician to visit your home. You do not need to be home for us to perform our services. To prepare your pool for our visit, fill your pool to the middle of the tile line or skimmer the day before your appointment to ensure the underwater detection covers all areas of the pool. Also, be sure your pool is clean enough for a technician to dive in, if necessary. PLEASE DO NOT DRAIN YOUR POOL. Sit back, relax and let us take care of the rest!

How-To Bucket Test, follow these simple steps to perform the test yourself.
Fill the level of your pool to normal operating level (normally mid-tile or mid-skimmer).

  1. Fill a bucket with pool water to about one inch from top.
  2. Place bucket on first or second step of pool.
  3. Mark water level on inside of bucket.
  4. Shut off pump and mark pool level on outside of bucket.
  5. Resume normal pump operation.

After 24 hours, compare the two levels. If the pool water (outside mark) goes down more than the inside water level, there is probably a leak.
