Swimming Pool

Liner Leak Detection

You suspect your pool is losing water through the liner

Typical water loss from a pool is approximately 1/4 inch per day. You shouldn't be adding more than two inches of water per week.


Here's a few things you can do yourself before calling PoolBoy.


- Ensure water level is half way to two thirds up the skimmer mouth
- Inspect the equipment pad for moisture
- Inspect the pump for air bubbles
- Inspect the pool for dirt or debris in front of the return lines
- Look for floating or tears in the liner
- Do a bucket test(see below)
