Common Causes of Swimming Pool Leaks

177561729Swimming pool leaks can be large or small, but all will waste water and affect the chemistry and usability of your pool. If you detect signs of a swimming pool leak, contact a pool repair service to have the issue addressed as soon as possible. Making pool repairs will restore the integrity of your pool, protect your yard, and prevent high water bills.

Plumbing Leaks

Oftentimes, swimming pool leaks are leaks in the plumbing system that supplies water to your pool and circulates it for cleaning. The pool pump and filter are common components that may develop leaks. Checking for damp areas or puddles around the pump and filter can help you identify a leak in these areas. Worn plumbing connections are often the cause of pool pump leaks. If the leak doesn’t appear to be associated with your pump or filter, check any other plumbing connections associated with your pool. Pools with an autofill system or water feature could develop plumbing leaks in these areas as well, so check these features for puddles, drips, and other signs of a leak.

Pool Shell Leaks

Alternatively, a pool leak may be a leak in the shell of the pool itself. If you have an above-ground pool, you may be able to easily spot either a leak by the excess water escaping from your pool. Inground pool leaks can be harder to detect—you may find that a certain area of your yard is damp or spongy if the leak is large. However, if the leak is small, you may not be able to find it on your own. An experienced pool service expert can perform a thorough inspection of your pool’s shell to find and repair your pool leak quickly and easily.
