If you find yourself adding water to your pool each week, you may have a leak. Shasta Pools specializes in detecting and repairing leaks. At least 95 percent of all leaks found are minor and not very expensive to repair. However, an unrepaired leak can eventually cause damage to your pool's structural components.
Do you have a leak?
There are sealants available that you can buy to repair the leak yourself, but over time many of these products can actually cause the affected area to deteriorate further creating bigger and more expensive problems down the road. Does your pool leak when the equipment is on, off or all the time? Contacting pool experts, like Shasta Pools, to schedule a general pool inspection is always a good idea.
Signs to watch for
Check the areas around your pool for signs of leaking water like wet soil or erosion. If you're not sure that you have a leak, try testing the evaporation rate of your pool using a bucket of water. Mark the water levels of the pool and the bucket. Wait 24 hours. If the pool levels have dropped more than the bucket, you have a leak.
