LEAK DETECTION and CRACK REPAIR
Leaks can occur in pool and spa plumbing lines, skimmers, lights and the structure itself. While leaks are a waste of water, more importantly the undermining of decks and the pool structure itself can be serious and quite costly.
Fortunately, Best Pool Leak Detection has a dedicated leak detection crew with the latest in leak detection technology. We keep a stocked service box truck with all our dive equipment, listening tools, skimmers, pipe fittings etc. We also carry a concrete mixer, concrete, concrete colors, stone and concrete deck stamps.
Our techs pressure test all the plumbing lines as well as dive the pool to dye test the structure. In most cases, they can do repairs without draining the pool and spa.
We also do a combination of epoxy injection and torque lock staples for the best possible crack repair.
Before you call lets be sure you have a leak with this simple test.
Bucket test procedure:
1. Bring the pool water to its normal level
2. Fill an empty bucket with pool water to about one inch from the top of bucket. (By filling the bucket close to the top you are ensuring that air movement over the surface of the bucket will similar to that of the pool.)
3. Place the bucket on the first or second step of the pool. To keep it from floating away it may be necessary to place a few bricks or rocks into the bucket. (By placing the bucket in the pool water you are ensuring that the water temperature of each will be similar).
4. Mark the water level inside the bucket.
5. Mark the water level of the pool on the outside of the bucket, on the pool wall, or skimmer face plate.
6. Operate the pool for 24 hours as it had been operated when a leak was first suspected.
7. 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.
