Before you call for a professional swimming pool detection service in Arkansas, here are few tips that can help you know the leak in your pool.

  • Place an empty 5 gallon bucket at the second stair of your pool. Fill it with water till it matches the pool’s water level. Mark the level with a tape.
  • Make sure the pup is not turned on. Also turn off any other water refilling system or pump.
  • Wait for 24 hours to compare the level of water in both the bucket and in pool. If you see that both the pool and bucket water have gone down but the level is same then it’s because of evaporation.

In case, the pool water is much lower than that of bucket, you’re most likely having a leak in there.

Now when you’re sure there’s a leak following are the tips to help you zero in on the exact place:

  • Let the pool drain. If the leak is at the bottom of the pool then it would drain a lot. However, if the leak is at the wall then it won’t take much of your time neither waste much water. You will easily understand where the leak is the moment water stops draining.
  • Add few drops of food coloring and if there’s any leak, it will drain through the leak source. Once you squirt the coloring, you should not disturb the water because it will make the color go wild and you won’t get the real source of leak.
