Gather Information

Through conversations with the pool owner and observations of the pool, confirm that the leak symptom being observed is indeed the result of a leak. A "Bucket Test" can be performed to determine how much of the observed water loss is due to evaporation and how much is due to a leak. The bucket test is performed by placing a bucket of water on the pool step and marking the water level in both the bucket and swimming pool with tape. If there is a leak, the pool will lose more water than the bucket. Other tests such as the "Pump On/Pump Off Test" will provide a useful base of information that will be helpful as you continue the leak detection process.
