Detecting Leaks

In addition to regular pool maintenance programs, our company offers fast leak detection services to diagnose and repair the source of a leak. Whether you know the source of the water loss or not, our team has the equipment to repair the problem.

The Process

Using state-of-the-art equipment for leak detection, our team tests both the shell of the pool (vinyl liners, Gunite™, and fiberglass) and the underground plumbing. This helps us locate the source of the leak and make necessary repairs.

Follow these steps to plug your pool:

1. Start by turning off your pump and filter

2. Mark the water level on the skimmer faceplate with a marker so that you know if the water leaked out while plugged

3. Plug the return lines (jet nozzles)

Remove the jet nozzles. Replace jet nozzles with either a white winter plug or a black winter plug. Hand tighten the plug.

4. Plug the skimmers:

Remove skimmer cover, remove skimmer basket, and insert your winter gizzmo (either a blue or green tube) Make sure you plug each skimmer and all return lines.

5. Wait 24 hours, then call Underwater Pool Masters with results of whether or not the pool still leaked while plugged.

If the pool still leaks, then a dive is needed. If not, a line test is needed.
