How To Tell If Your Pool Is Losing Water

Customers frequently call with a suspicion that there pool is losing water.

Pool Losing Water

Wind, water temperature, and other things all affect the evaporation rate of a swimming pool. Thus the evaporation rate can vary significantly from one day to the next or even from one pool to another. The Bucket Test can help determine if water loss in a swimming pool is due to a leak or normal evaporation.

The Bucket Test

By performing this simple test, you will be able to compare the water levels of the pool and the bucket. This will give a greater insight to whether or not your swimming pool may be leaking.

How To Perform a Bucket Test:

  • Make sure the pool is filled half way up the tile, which is the proper water level.
  • Fill a container and place it on your top or second step, level with the pool water.
  • Mark the water level on the outside of the bucket with tape or a marker.
  • Run the system 24 hours.
  • If the water level in your pool is lower than the bucket, you may have a leak. Normal evaporation will occur in the bucket but it won’t lose water.
  • If the water level in the pool dropped, make a note of how far. If it is several inches in 24 hours, you may have an underground leak.
  • Refill pool to proper water level and maintain this level so the system doesn’t “run dry” and burn up the equipment.
