How to tell if your swimming pool has a leak. Place a bucket of water beside the pool and mark both the water in the bucket and the pool water level. Wait 24 hours then check the loss of both. If the pool loses more water than the bucket, then you have a leak.
What are the prices for leak detection and repair? Of course, charges will be lowered with your help of uncovering the facts needed to determine the leaks location. Average charges range from $250 or more depending on the extent of your leak. Higher prices will be realized for below ground work; however, many leaks are fixed within one hour. Many pools leak in more than one area so monitoring is important after any repair is made. There may be additional charges for cutting and replacing concrete and for SCUBA (under-water) work.
