Pool Leak Detection Services in Baltimore

How do you know if you have a leak in you pool?

If you wake-up to find that your pool water has dropped several inches overnight you know you’ve got a problem somewhere.

Some pool leaks develop slowly so you may not even notice anything is wrong until you realize you keep having to add more water to your pool to keep it filled to the top.

In these cases it is important to determine what is “normal water loss” and thus avoid wasting time looking for and worrying about a leak that really isn’t there.

Other pool leak symptoms may be actual evidence of the water that has escaped from your pool.

  1. Wet, mushy, or unusually “healthy” spots in the lawn may be evidence of underground plumbing leaks.
  2. Structural damage, cracks, and settling to the deck or pool may also be indications of underground leaks.

If you do not repair the leak, these problems can quickly become more serious.

Pool Leak Symptoms Resulting From Water Loss

If you have an automatic fill device on your pool a dropping water level may not appear right away and high water costs could be the very first indicator of a pool water leak issue. You may also see an increase in the chemicals needed to keep proper balance, or that there is excess algae development due to the fact that the brand-new water that’s being put into the swimming pool is unattended. If you do not repair the leak, these troubles can rapidly end up being more significant and more expensive to fix as time goes on.
