Your pool will naturally lose some water to evaporation, splash out and backwashing, and gain water from rainfall. Pools are meant to be watertight but sealants will deteriorate while other parts of your pool shift, settle or wear out. Pools can leak through old or torn liners, any of the fittings or accessories, plumbing, or even right through the shell. It is important to repair leaks, not only to save water, heat, and chemicals but also to prevent more serious structural and mechanical problems.
Signs you have a pool leak:
- Adding more than 2 inches of water a week
- Pool has air in the system (bubbles blowing into the pool)
- Equipment loses prime
- You see cracks
- Pool deck is sinking or lifting
- Wet spots around the pool
- New wrinkles in your liner
