SOME CAUSES OF POOL LEAKS

 There are a number of reasons a pool leaks -

1. the expansion and contraction of the tile grout during extreme heat and cold,

2. cracked or broken plumbing,

3. the sealant around returns and drains wear down,

4. crack in the interior surface of the pool or deterioration of the surface.

5. Equipment issues

 

Follow the guidelines in the article "Pool Leaks" for the bucket test. First determine the water loss. Where does the water loss stop? At the bottom of the tile line- could be the grout around the waterline tile or cracked tile. Or if the water loss stops at the bottom of the skimmer- resealing around skimmer or replacement may be required to take care of the issue. If a greater water loss it may indicate issues with the wall returns, main drain, or structural or surface crack. Having a qualified leak detection company follow up might be required.

Check around the pool equipment for any standing water.  It is also important to note if the water loss is only when pool pump is running.

 

During the process of resurfacing the pool, new wall fittings and/or lights are replaced and sealed. If the water loss is immediate after refilling the pool or within 30days, it would be cause for the resurfacing company to  return for a leak detection to determine the reason. If the leak is due to workmanship it will be evident within a matter of a week or two.

 

Keep in mind that water loss is eminent during the hot summer months due to evaporation, excessive splashing, and constantly running water features. Read "Waterwise Rules for Water Conservation".
