Showtime Pools is committed to providing the best swimming pool leak detection and repair services for its customers. One of the most important aspects of this is understanding the different types of pool leaks that can occur, as this knowledge helps us to diagnose and repair leaks quickly and efficiently. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the different types of pool leaks, their causes, and how to detect and repair them.
Types of Pool Leaks:
Structural Leaks: These are leaks that occur in the actual structure of the pool, such as cracks in the pool’s shell or damage to the pool’s plumbing system. These leaks can be caused by a variety of factors, including age, poor maintenance, shifting soil, or freezing temperatures.
Equipment Leaks: Equipment leaks occur when a piece of pool equipment, such as the filter or pump, develops a leak. These leaks can be caused by damaged seals, loose fittings, or cracks in the equipment housing.
Plumbing Leaks: Plumbing leaks occur when there is a problem with the plumbing system that connects the pool to the filter and pump. These leaks can be caused by damaged pipes, loose fittings, or problems with the pool’s plumbing system.
Detecting Pool Leaks
Detecting a pool leak can be a challenging task, but several signs can indicate a problem. These signs include:
- A drop in the water level that cannot be attributed to evaporation
- An increase in the pool’s chemical usage or pH levels
- Water damage or staining around the pool area
- A decrease in the pool’s water pressure
- The pool’s pump losing prime
If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to call Showtime Pools as soon as possible to schedule a leak detection service.
Repairing Pool Leaks
Once a leak has been detected, the next step is to repair it. The type of repair needed will depend on the location and severity of the leak. For example, a structural leak may require a more extensive repair than a small equipment leak.
At Showtime Pools, we utilize the latest technologies and techniques to repair all types of pool leaks. These may include pressure testing to locate the source of the leak, scuba diving to inspect the pool’s structure, or thermal imaging to identify temperature changes that may indicate a leak.
In addition to repairing the leak itself, we also take steps to prevent future leaks from occurring. This may involve upgrading the pool’s plumbing system, installing new equipment, or providing regular maintenance and inspections.
