|Granada Hills Pool Leak Detection Tips
When thinking about hiring a professional, first ask yourself if you are adding water more frequenly - about every two to three days. Typical Summer loss due to evaporation is about an inch and a half a week. To be sure, try the "bucket test" - simply get a 5 gallon bucket and put it on the deck; add water and mark the level inside the bucket. Mark also the water level at the tile, and turn off the circulation system. Check in a day or two and compare. Did the the pool water drop at a faster rate than the bucket. If so, then somewhere in the pool shell there is a breach. If not, then repeat again with the pump on for 48 hours. If the pool water now drops faster than the pail, this means there is a breach somewhere in the plumbing. Whether you live in Porter Ranch or Granada Hills, pool leak detection may be needed for you.
