Do I Have A Pool Leak?

Bucket Test

  • Firstly, fill a bucket of water roughly 2-4 cms from the top and place bucket on the pool step
  • Turn the pump off. Mark the level inside of the bucket and mark the pool level inside of the skimmer box. 
  • Turn the pump back on and run as normal for 24 hours.
  • After 24 hours turn the pump off and check the levels.
  • If they’re the same you do not have a leak, but if the pool has gone down more than the bucket you more than likely have a leak.

Please be aware that this is only a 24 hour period test.

Give us a call for more information or if you have a leak. We will be happy to help.
