The first step is to find out if your pool is losing water.

We pressurize your skimmer line(s) and pool return line(s) with both water and air to determine if there is a leak present. Any loss of pressure is a sure indication of a leak. The cost of this service is roughly $180.00. More elaborate systems with an inground floor and jacuzzi systems cost more.

Pool Leak Repair Service

Reasons For Pool Leaks

Failure to properly winterize your pool plumbing is the most common reason for cracks in your pool lines.

A common leak for Gunite pools is at the skimmer, right where the plastic skimmer meets the pool wall. Due to expansion and contraction during the changing seasons, this gasket requires inspection every year.

Holes rips tears in a vinyl liner are sure to leak.

Repairs and Equipment

The epoxies and resins we use to repair leaks work best when the pool water is warm. So, if you have a tiny hole, it is best first to get the pool open and clean, then if possible wait till the warmer months to patch pool walls or liner.

How do you know if you have a pool leak? Most people know how often they have to add water. Most leaks, even very small ones will require adding water every day, or every other day.

Leak diagnosis and detection is now more a science than the old days, thanks to new specialized tools, finding leaks are easier than ever before.

We have an electronic leak detection machine that makes a sound when the sensor comes near a hole in a vinyl liner. If the pool leak is near a return or a drain, it may require using dye to test for the source.

The first step is to find out if your leak is due to underground plumbing, pool liner, or through pool walls. Installing winter plugs into all the pool plumbing, and leaving the pool off, will help to determine if your pools piping is the issue. If water continues to go down, you know its probably a hole in the liner or a leak at the pool light or pool shell.
