Why Your Pool Needs to be Clean, Clear, and Filled to Normal Operating Level.

At Seacoast Water Services, we understand exactly what's needed for a successful leak inspection and we will dive into the crucial role water levels and clarity plays in properly identifying and repairing leaks, addressing misconceptions, and providing insights into the inspection process.

The Importance of Water Level:

To accurately identify a leak, visual inspection underwater is paramount. The water level needs to be above the leaking area for us to confirm and repair the leak effectively. Once the water level reaches the leak point, the pool stops losing water, making it impossible for us to pinpoint the cause of the leak.

Can you Inspect an Empty Pool for Leaks:

While an empty pool might reveal visible cracks in structures, it doesn’t necessarily indicate a leak. Conversely, the absence of visible signs doesn’t guarantee a watertight pool. The only way to confirm a pool’s watertight status is to fill it with water.

Adapting to Rapid Water Loss Situations

Understanding that some customers may face challenges maintaining a normal water level due to rapid water loss, Seacoast Water Services offers solutions. Customers can add at least 6 inches from the current water level or throw a hose in the pool before our inspection. It’s important to note that we can only identify and repair leaks below the water level during the initial visit.

Challenges with Discolored Pools:

Pools that are discolored or green pose additional challenges. Beyond being unsanitary for swimming, such conditions make it difficult to locate and repair leaks, as visibility underwater is compromised.

Maintaining a normal water level is not just a procedural requirement; it’s a critical component in conducting a successful leak inspection. We hope this insight clarifies the reasons behind our procedures and emphasizes the importance of a well-maintained pool for accurate leak detection and efficient repairs. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out – we’re here to help keep your pool in optimal condition.
