If you own a pool spa, it’s fairly easy to detect an issue. When you’ve opened the pool for the season you will be able to identify leaks by watching the water pouring out. The source of the leak from, however, could be quite different. Sometimes it’s straightforward to identify, however some times it’s somewhat more complex.
The first thing to take care of is to you sure the water that you feel or feel is missing is an actual leak. Although you might think that it’s a leak it could be something different. In essence, there are three reasons for water loss in swimming pools: leaks in the plumbing, leaks in the shell and evaporate. It is important to understand the source of the leak before proceeding any further. There are times when what you believe may be a leak might actually be water loss from splashing. This could occur if there are lots of swimmers into your pool.
Evaporation is one of the main causes of water loss. However, there’s a method by which you can identify if the decrease in water loss is actually due to evaporation. To determine this, you need to take the container in a large size, add water to it and place it on the pool’s first step. After that, take some of the water that was that is sitting on the first step to ensure that the water within the pool as well as in the container are on the identical level. Let the container remain there for a few days, without anyone making use of the pool for the entire period.
If you go back just a few days, your levels should be similar. If they’ve decreased in any way, you’ll know that the sun’s evaporation is the reason. If the pool water you’ve got in your container has decreased a good much more than what you’ve got inside the container then you’ll be aware that there is an issue with your pool.
If you suspect that the water is coming downwards to cause a pool leak then you’ll need to identify the source of the leak from. Always start inspecting the pump as well as the filter. When you are looking around, if you spot any damp or wet areas, it is important to examine the water to look for any leaks. Most of the time the leak could result in an issue to some pipes.
If there isn’t a pipe or a pipe, it might be an issue within the shell. If you own an aboveground pool simply search for the hole the water comes out and fix it. However in the case of one that is below the ground, it could be more complex. It is possible to inspect the shell of the pool or examining the area around it.
Sometimes, regardless of the effort you make it’s almost impossible to pinpoint the source of the leak from. Be aware that if the issue is with the shell, not give it to a trained professional to address the issue. Shells designed specifically for underground pools can be very difficult to repair, and more difficult if you are a novice with little about swimming pools.
Most of the time, finding and fixing leaks in your pool is only identifying the causes until you can identify the correct one. After you’ve found the source of the issue and are aware of the cause you will be able to decide whether or not you want to make the repair yourself, or seek out a professional with the right qualifications and let them handle the work for you.
