Signs of a pool leak
Not all leaks in a pool release large gushes of water. So it is important to be on the lookout for potential problems. Minor water loss can be due to evaporation, although there are more serious problems that could wind up costing you a fortune in repairs. Here is a look at some of the warning signs that indicate you are in need of pool leak repair:
- Loss of water on daily basis
- Grass near pool is constantly soggy
- Sinking patio or pool deck
- Prime fades on pool equipment
- Cracking in patio
- Tiles are loose on pool deck
- Constant need to add water
Not all pool leaks are easy to identify and that is because some pools are equipped with an automatic fill device. Those pools have ways to check for leaks and that could include turning off the automatic fill and conducting a bucket test.

Types of Pool Leak Repair
A pool has a lot of working parts and that means there could be a variety of reasons your pool is leaking. Vines Plumbing sees a lot of common issues and has the experience and training to complete all types of repair which could apply to the following parts:
- Return lines – This type of repair involves going into your pool deck and fixing a leak in the lines that carry water into the pool after going from the pool pump to the filter.
- Suction lines – The function of these lines is to take water from the pool and then recirculating it, A faulty suction line may call for the need to conduct a dig into the ground.
- Pump – A pool pump is expected to last about 10 years on average and when one fails, it can be remedied by installing a replacement pump.
