Pool Leak Detection Experts
Building up pressure by inducing air into the suction and return lines of a swimming pool’s plumbing system can help determine if a pipe is cracked or broken. In order for this to be effective all ventilation and possible exits must be closed off.
Usually, the pool plumbing is pressure tested at 20 PSI for 20 minutes to verify if there is indeed a pool leak. If any pressure loss is detected, sonar equipment (an amplified listening device) can be used to listen for air and water escaping a pipe underground.
When you conduct an ink dye test on a swimming pool it makes it easier to detect where the leak is coming from. Since the dye is a heavier liquid than water, it will gravitate towards the leak quicker. Ink dye tests give pool owners a general understanding of where their pool is leaking from. More than likely you will need a professional for a definitive answer of where the leak is located.
