Is Your Pool Losing Water?

Over time, it is the inevitable that your pool will lose water through evaporation and through regular use. However, losing water could also be a sign of a leak in your pool. A major sign is if you  have to add more than two inches of water each week to your pool. By Just adding the few inches of water could result in as much as 1,000 gallons of water a year which will lead to a higher water bill.

Even if it turns out you don’t have a leak, it’s worth the time to inspect the pool.

Why is it important to fix pool leaks? Because you can…

  • Limit wasted water and big utility bills
  • Save money on pool chemicals
  • Keep the pool’s machinery in good condition


Most of the time, a pool leak is not particularly obvious. Pool leak detection is a specialization within the pool industry and can be a quick fix when done by a professional.

Why Is Your Pool 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 pool leak detection:

  • Is the pool leaking only with the equipment on? This may indicate a pressure-side return leak. Check to ensure water is consistently running through the waste or backwash line. One inch of your pool water can equal 500 gallons. Check downhill from the pool, where underground leakage is surfacing. Also check for soft or wet spots in the yard, on the side of the pool where the plumbing returns water to the pool.
  • Is the pool leaking only with the equipment off? This usually indicates a suction-side leak or in the pipes that bring water from the pool. You might notice air in the pump basket, air bubbling out of the return lines, or air repeatedly built up inside the filter tank.
  • Does the pool leak all the time? This does not rule out leaks in the plumbing, but turns a suspicious eye on the shell of the pool.Look for cracks or tears. Look closely at the tile line and especially inside of the skimmers.

Common Types of Pool Leaks

Here are a few types of leaks you may encounter:

  1. Pressure-side return leak – A leak that forms due to the pressure on the plumbing.
  2. Suction-side leak – A sign of this leak is a buildup of air inside the filter tank.
  3. Crack in the plaster or vinyl – A pool that won’t stop leaking might have shell damage.
