Leak detection is a highly specialized trade. Leaks can do a lot of damage quickly and an untrained eye will have trouble spotting them, costing hundreds of dollars each day. At Texas Fiberglass Pools, we use leak detection technology that lets us find even the most difficult leaks hidden under plumbing or pool decking.
What Is Leak Detection?
We know your pool is an important part of your family’s fun and is a worthwhile investment in your home. The last thing you want is this valuable asset leaking water and causing damage to surrounding infrastructure and landscaping. Identifying pool leaks early can save money, reduce damage and protect property values. When your pool is leaking, you need to take action fast and you need help from a professional.
Depending on your pool or spa set up, our technicians will pressure test your pipes or dive in your pool to locate the leaks. We have underwater microphones and other specialty tools and equipment to help us accurately locate leaks of all types. We have all the diving equipment and expertise necessary to locate small leaks underwater.
One of the most common forms of detection uses a compressed air system to pressurize the water pipes. The air displaces the water until a leak is found and the air pressure disperses. Not all leak detection companies utilize this technology and equipment, which can mean more invasive methods using jackhammers.

Why Are You Leaking? A Few Things To Consider
Most in-ground pools contain about 20,000 gallons of water and lose water for different reasons, from natural forces to faulty pool construction or a break in the plumbing system. Water loss can be an issue because it can shift the balance of the pool chemistry and affect the sanitary quality of water. Water loss can also cause component damage if the level of pool water drops below the skimmer inlets and air gets sucked into the system. Because water loss may be gradual in pools, homeowners may not recognize it until the problem becomes quite advanced.
Here are a few things to consider if you suspect you might need leak detection:
Do You Need Leak Detection?
Figuring out if you really have a leak can be tough. Wind, humidity and sun exposure all impact the rate of your pool’s water evaporation. Just because your water level is lower than normal does not mean your pool has a leak. If you suspect something isn’t right and there are signs of possible issues, like cracks or bulging, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
The longer a pipe or pool shell is leaking, the more costly the eventual fix will be.
Be on the lookout for these warning signs that you need leak detection:
Your pool, fountain, or spa loses more than a quarter-inch of water a day
There are cracks in or around the pool decking
Grass around the area is soggy
Your pool deck is sinking or lifting
You need to add water more than once a week
