Signs Your Pool or Spa May Be Leaking

There are some telltale signs to watch out for that may indicate you have a leaky pool –


Loss of Water

One of the key signs to indicate a potential leak is the loss of water in the pool.  Pools will naturally lose a certain amount of water through evaporation but if you find you are constantly losing water and topping the pool up more frequently than usual you may have a leak.   You can quickly and easily confirm this by conducting a bucket test.


High Use Of Chemicals

When water leaks out of your pool so does the chemicals its been treated with.  When you are frequently topping up the pool, the chemical concentration gets diluted and consequently more chemicals are needed to keep the pool water balanced.



When water starts leaking through the pool structure or underground pipes it can cause the ground to become saturated and unstable.  This may result in sunken areas of paving or lawn, wet spots around the garden and retaining walls or it may cause the pool fence to move and shift alignment.

How To Perform a Bucket Test

  • Make sure the pool is at its normal level.
  • Fill a 10L bucket with pool water 25mm from the top of the bucket.
  • Place the bucket on the first or second step of the pool. You might need to put rocks in the bottom to keep it from floating away and mark the water level inside the bucket.
  • Mark the water level of the pool on the outside of the bucket.
  • Operate the pool normally for 24 hours.
  • After 24 hours, compare the two levels. If the pool water goes down more than the water level inside the bucket, there is probably a leak.
