Give the Bucket Test a Try!
Have you wondered if you actually have a pool or spa leak or if it is just evaporation? The bucket test can let you know in as little as 24 hours and potentially save you from needing a pool or spa leak detection service! Here is what you need to do:
- Get a bucket! Any 5 Gallon bucket will do....
- Place something heavy in the bucket such as a brick or rocks
- Place the bucket on the step of your pool in the water (any other flat surface in the pool or spa will work)
- Fill the bucket up with water so that the water in the bucket is even with the body of water it is sitting in
- Mark the inside and outside water level with tape or a sharpie
- This step is optional, but I like to take pictures of the levels with my cell phone camera
- Leave the bucket to sit for 24-48 hours
- Return to see if the two bodies of water are at the same level or if they are no longer the same
Please see image below.
So now that you see what has occurred, what does this info tell you? As long as the bucket is not compromised, this level of water will only be lost to evaporation. (Evaporation in the 1/8"-1/4" per day is considered normal and in hotter months can be more) If the pool does not have a leak, the two bodies of water will be the same providing no water in the bucket was lost or added. If the pool does have a leak, the pool or spa will be lower than the water level in the bucket! If the water in pool or spa is lower, it's time to call in the experts at OC Leak Detection servicing Del Mar!
