It’s already the middle of summer and swimming pool season is in full swing!
Now that the 4th of July has passed, we’re entering a common time of year when pool leaks start to become more noticeable.
For the first part of the summer, it’s easy to chalk up water loss in your pool to kids splashing, backwashing frequently as you get your pool up and running, and vacuuming to waste when needed, etc.
Once you get past the holiday and are in your normal rhythm though, you may start to notice an issue with losing pool water and suspect you have a leak somewhere in your pool.
Over the years we’ve honed our expertise on finding leaks on pools in and around Wichita, but every leak is a bit of a mystery to be solved. There are many places and reasons your pool could be leaking causing your water loss, so we start by having you do some rudimentary tests for us to provide indications of where you may be losing water.
As a general rule of thumb, approximately 1/8″ of water loss per day can be attributed to evaporation here in Kansas. If you’re losing more than that, it’s time to start the process of finding a leak in your pool.
To help us begin to determine where you may be leaking, the first step is to perform a simple test…
Let us help you get your leak fixed and get you back to enjoying your pool this summer!
