Our first step in diagnostics is to ascertain whether the leak in your pool is coming from within the pool shell or whether it is located in the equipment/plumbing. Tools we use include LeakTrac’s (vinyl liner scanner), electronic listening devices, hydrophones, pressure testing equipment , dye-testing, visual inspection (including underwater), plus lots of good old-fashioned knowledge and experience.
Possible sources of leaks in your pool (and how we locate them) include:
Visual inspection and dye-test to locate leaks due to cracks in light fixtures or leaks in the conduit running from the light to the electrical junction box.
Visual inspection and dye-test to determine leaks arising from improperly fitting jets or cracks in the fittings.
Visual inspection and dye-test to locate leaks due to cracks or ill-fitting faceplates and gaskets.
Visual inspection, dye-test, sonar and dive to locate leaks due to tears and seam separations, overstretched or weak vinyl, gashes/ holes.
Visual inspection, dye-test and dive to locate leaks due to large or deep cracks.
Underground plumbing including main drain
Plugs, dye-test, pressure test, listening devices to locate leak in suction or return lines due cracks, breaks.
Visual inspection for leaks due to old/damaged/improperly installed equipment.
