Is Water Loss Normal in a Pool?
Evaporation naturally causes water loss in a swimming pool or spa. You might see as much as two inches of water loss in a week. However, if you find that your pool is losing more than 1/4 inch per day or more than 2 inches of water per week, you may have a leak. The first step is to call Lester Pools Inc. to inspect it. Your pool technician will inspect the plumbing and components and use a thermal camera to locate any leaks and provide a quote for repairs.
Signs of a Pool Leak
Although it's normal to lose a little water every day (and more if the kids have been practicing dives), more than 1/4 inch of loss per day is a warning sign that something is wrong.
- There are some telltale signs of a pool leak that should prompt you to call a pool professional:
- Unexpected water level drops
- Higher water bills
- Standing puddles near the pool
- Repeatedly unbalanced chemical levels
- Discolored water
Do Slow Pool Leaks Need to Be Repaired?
Even small leaks in a pool or hot tub will result in further damage to the structures and expensive water bills. Small leaks if not repaired become large leaks. Most often, leaks occur around the skimmer. Other common causes of pool leaks include punctures or structural damage in the shell or plumbing issues such as a broken pipe or a loose fitting, such as around grab bars or tiles. Lester Pools Inc. will provide a fair quote for parts and labor required to repair your pool leak. Repairing your leak quickly will save money in the long run in water loss and in the prevention of further deterioration of your pool system.

Lester Pools Inc.'s team is often called to fix cracks in a pool's concrete. This is often caused when the soil settles or the ground shifts. Depending on the size and scope of your crack, Lester Pools Inc. may repair it with silicone. It is possible that a replacement of your skimmer is necessary to repair a leak in that area.
Silicone is often used to repair leaks around fittings near lights, jets, or face plates. Main drain leaks are often more complicated and often require replacement. Lester Pools Inc. will provide details of the source of your leak and the most economical solution to repair it and get you enjoying your pool again.
