Worried Your Pool Has a Leak? Call Atlantic Leak Detection of New Jersey for a Pool Inspection
Have you noticed any of the following signs with your New Jersey pool: unexplained water loss; cracks in the pools shell, tile or coping; unexplained wet spots in your yard; an increase in pool chemical usage or an inability to properly regulate your pool chemicals; a pool deck that is sinking or lifting; or large air bubbles in your pumps? If so, you may have a leak in your pool. Finding the leak is important, not only to save potentially thousands of gallons of water, but also to prevent further damage to your pool and surrounding property.
Novice pool owners often worry that they have a leak because they notice that their pools are losing water. However, evaporation means that all pools will experience some water loss. During periods of high-heat, two inches per week is a normal amount of water loss. You may notice even greater losses after periods of particularly active use or when you have many people using the pool. If your water loss is greater than normal and remains elevated despite no change in usage, then you may have a leak.
Finding a leak in a pool can be very difficult. Pools can have leaks in their shells or their plumbing. While both leaks can lead to water loss, they are detected and fixed in different ways. A thorough leak inspection will examine all of your plumbing for leaks and use a diver to thoroughly inspect the surface of your pool’s shell for leaks. Leaks can appear in any type of pool surface- concrete, gunite, vinyl, and fiberglass. Fortunately, by using the least-invasive methods available, we can inspect pools for leaks without damaging your pool or yard, and are often able to repair minor leaks without even having to drain the pool.
