A pool or hot tub that loses water can be very challenging to maintain in a clean, healthy manner. If you live on metered City supply, you are not just paying for water, but also for water balancing chemicals, pool salt and the heat required to make up for the addition of cold water. Add the fact that you can burn out a pump if it “runs dry” and you have a very costly, frustrating situation.
Some leaks are relatively easy to find but others are obscure, hidden and just plain old hard-to-find. Most service companies are neither equipped nor trained to locate leaks with any kind of accurately.
Benson Pools have the skilled technicians and the equipment to:
- Accurately determine how much water you are losing per hour so you know what it’s costing you in water, heat and chemicals.
- Locate and map all leak(s) with certainty. The leaks may be in the pool “structure”, at a light or other fitting or; in a buried pipe under a beautiful deck.
- Repair leaks in a professional manner in vinyl liners, plastered pools, at pool fittings, pool stairs or underground piping. We can cut open concrete / flagstone decks and properly repair them with in-house personnel.
Let us look after that annoying water loss so you will have peace of mind that your pool is reliable and ready to go all the time. We’ll get to the root of the problem – Call us now to set up an appointment with our Leak Doctor.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What types of leaks can Benson Leak Detection locate?
A: Our service works for both structural or plumbing leaks in vinyl-lined, gunite (concrete) or fiberglass pools; both residential and commercial.
Q: I’m not sure my pool is leaking but it seems like I’m filling it more often than usual.
A: It can be hard to tell if you are losing a small amount of water and sometimes one may think it’s evaporation. Rainfall can make it seem like the pool is not leaking. With our modern, high tech equipment we can tell in a short time if you actually have a leak.
Q: I don’t see water around my pool but I know it’s leaking….where could the water be going?
A: It would take a massive leak to show up on the surface of your yard. The earth can absorb a huge amount of water so it’s unlikely to show up that easily.
Q: How does Benson find the leaks?
A: We’ve been in the pool business for almost 60 years so we have extensive knowledge of how pools are constructed and what questions to ask. With our state-of-the-art Leak Detection equipment we will track your leak down – even the tiniest leaks can’t hide.
Q: My pool leaked all summer and now I want to winterize it and maybe look for the problem in the spring. Is that OK?
A: You must (at the very least) determine where the leak is. If it’s leaking through the “pool tank” and not in the piping, it may empty completely over the winter causing extensive damage to the liner and pool walls or to the concrete (gunite) shell. Such a leak must be repaired before winter while the water is clear and there are no leaves in the pool. And warm enough to dive / make repairs.
Q: How long does it take you to find an average leak?
A: Typically we will find most leaks in 2-3 hours. Our service is based on a flat-rate fee so you don’t have to worry about escalating costs during our search
