Locating a leak in your pool could be daunting as you would certainly not know whether your pool is leaking or whether it is evaporating. Your pool will lose some water due to evaporation depending upon the climate and season you are living in, but if you find yourself filling up your pool every week there may be a leak.
There are signs to look out for when speculating a pool leak:
- The ground is wet in areas around the pool

- The pool paving is starting to lift or sink
- Air bubbles at the inlet
How to Conduct the Bucket Test.
Identify whether you have a leak in your pool or not perform the bucket test
Make certain your pool is at a normal water level, then fill a 20-liter bucket with pool water 100 mm from the top.
- Position the bucket on the 1st step of your pool, make certain a 3rd of the bucket is underwater.
- Mark the water level inside the bucket and mark the pool water outside of the bucket.
- Leave the bucket for a day and after that compare the two water levels. If the pool water level is less than the bucket’s water level the possibilities that you have leaks are high.
- If both levels are the same you have no leaks but evaporation has taken place.
