'Tis the Season for Water Leaks in Swimming Pools

While swimming pools are a great way to beat the summer heat here in Central Florida, the upkeep can get expensive, especially if it has a water leak. High water bills and extra chemicals can end up, costing a small fortune, not to mention the damage it’s doing.

Many homeowners may not be aware that their pool is leaking because many they have an automatic fill valve to help maintain the proper water levels; therefore when a leak occurs it can go undetected for years.

There are many reasons why water leaks happen, from the temperature changes during our cold winter, the ground shifting, tree roots, construction in the area, remodeling, to corrosion and older pipes.

Look for these visible signs of a water leak in your swimming pool area.

For non visible water leaks do the bucket test.

With the pool pump on, place a bucket on the second step and fill it with water equal to the pool, then mark the level in the bucket. Wait 24 hours and if the water is less in the pool than the mark on the bucket you may have a leak. Repeat the test with the pool pump off.
