pool and spa leak detection

Our pool and spa leak detection service can locate the exact location of a pool or spa leak so you can cut down on demolition costs if leak is behind concrete. We will help keep costs to a minimum when repairing the leak.

You may have a leak if…

  • Pool has air in the system
  • Equipment loses prime
  • You see cracks
  • Pool deck is sinking or lifting
  • There are soggy spots around the pool
  • You add water more than once a week
  • Pool loses more than regular evaporation
  • Excessive use of chemicals

    Preparing your pool for a professional leak detection:

    In most cases, it is recommended that the pool be vacuumed spotless prior to your detection. Make sure the water is clean and not green. If it is green, the water may contain bacteria, molds, fungus, larvae or other contaminants that could make you sick, besides making it almost impossible to test.

Signs you may have a pool or spa leak

  • Increase in water bill
    If you have a major spike in your water bill, it may be a sign that you have a pool leak. Even the smallest of holes can leak hundreds and hundreds of gallons of water per week. If it is not your pool that is leaking, then it could mean you have a leak elsewhere in your home. If leaks go unnoticed for too long, it can cause significant structural damage to your pool or even your home.  Contact 530 Leak Detection right away.
  • Standing water
    If you see a puddle of water near your pool and it hasn’t rained in some time or no one has gone swimming, this is a sure-tell sign of a pool leak. If you stand by your pool make sure you feel the nearby grass. If the grass feels mushy or uneven, this is a sign of an underground leak. Either way, these are key indicators that you could have a pool leak and you should contact 530 Leak Detection as soon as possible. 
  • Fluctuating chemicals
    If you notice that your chemical levels have a sudden drop without explanation, this is also a sign of a leak. Leaking water carries chemicals out of your pool, which makes you will need to add more than usual to make up for that loss. If you have a leak on your hands it will be nearly impossible to keep your chemical levels steady from one day to the next. The experts at 530 Leak Detection can detect whether you have a leak, where the leak is coming from, saving you on cost to repair and ensure you no further damage occurs.
  • Algae or discolored water
    A pool with improper chemical levels is a perfect breeding ground for algae. If algae develop quickly enough it can turn your pool water green which is another sure sign of a leak. Green pools are extremely dangerous; if you notice that your pool has turned green over an extremely short period of time, call the experts at 530 Leak Detection to come out and assess whether or not this is due to a pool leak. 
  • Cracks in or around pool or spa
    Just like driveways and sidewalks, pools can develop cracks over time that can lead to a wide range of problems in your pool. Some smaller cracks can sometimes be sealed while more expansive problems may require professional resurfacing. Cracks in and around your pool are a clear indicator or a leak or potential leak. A professional will need to come to your home and repair the cracks before major damage occurs.
