It is not uncommon to find out that your pool has more than one leak. Since they usually start slowly, you may not notice them at first. Later on, you suddenly develop a more major leak that requires a fast response. For this reason we use a variety of specialty leak detection tools to help us track down all leaks.

Is It A Pool Leak Or Evaporation?

It is normal for every swimming pool to lose some water to evaporation. In the heat of a Texas summer, your pool may lose from 1/4 to 1/2 inch of water per day. Even in winter, your pool can still lose water. The primary factors that effect water evaporation rates are:

If you have noticed changes in water consumption that seems like more than evaporation, start by reviewing your water bill. Then, if you still think a leak may be involved, you can perform a “bucket test”. We will outline the steps of that test below if you want to conduct this yourself. When you suspect a leak, don’t panic! Sink or Swim can repair many leaks quickly and cost-effectively.

Pool Leak Detection & Testing Procedures

Pool leaks can happen to anyone. And, the damage usually becomes worse over time. From failing equipment to normal wear and tear, Sink or Swim has a trained team of professional pool techs ready to help. But, even before you call a technician, you can perform a simple “bucket test” yourself to check for water loss from  your pool. The bucket test, which we have outlined below, is a quick and easy way to see if your pool is losing water due to a leak rather than natural evaporation. If, after performing a test, it appears that your pool or spa is in fact leaking, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Our technicians can then perform specialized testing to ensure we find all pool leaks and present you with your best option to get them repaired.

The Bucket Test

As we outlined earlier, natural water loss from your pool are dependent on a variety of environmental and pool related conditions. Before becoming too concerned about a leak you can do a simple test to determine if water loss in your swimming pool is due to a leak or is just evaporation. This simple test is called the bucket test. Basically, the bucket test exposes water in a bucket to the same conditions as those affecting your swimming pool. By comparing the water loss in each, it is possible to determine if the pool is leaking or if supposed leaks are just the result of water being lost to evaporation.

Performing A Bucket Test

We recommend that no animals or people enter the pool  while conducting the test to avoid water splashing out.

Although these tests are not 100% accurate because of varying environmental conditions during the tests, the information they provide can at least establish suspect locations to begin your leak search. Giving this information to your Sink or Swim pool tech will help them more efficiently solve your pool leak problem. Please contact us for questions or scheduling service.

Pool Leak FAQs

It’s true that pools come in all shapes & sizes. However, there are some common questions we are asked when testing swimming pools. Here are a few of the most common questions that seem to be on homeowners minds. 

What Causes Pool Leaks?

There are a number of different reasons for why your pool has started to leak. A few reasons could be:

  • Pool surfaces can deteriorate with age and cause pool leaks
  • Leaking pool pipes ca used by ground movement
  • Faulty pool pump or pool equipment that has worn out
  • Ground expansion from rainy or dry weather can cause ground movement causing pool pipes and pool structures to move, crack and leak

How Do You Find The Pool Leak?

By utilizing specialized state-of-the-art equipment and a thorough inspection as outlined in the Comprehensive Testing tab.

Can You Fix Leaks Underwater?

We can find leaks under water; but fixing them will probably require at least part of the water to be drained. The first step is always to accurately diagnose the leak; then we can discuss your best solutions.


Should My Pool Be Full & Clean?

For Sink or Swim to carry out our tests accordingly we ask that the pool be clean and full. Visibility is also a must if we have to perform an underwater structural test.

Do I Have To Be Home?

No. As long as we have access to the pool and pool filtration area nobody needs to be home. We will call you before we leave the job with the outcome of our findings.
