Pool leaks can be very tricky, as they are difficult to identify and can lead you to lose gallons of water without you even realizing the cause for the same. It is also a very time-consuming process. Thankfully, The Home Zen comes to your rescue, as we have experience in detecting and fixing all types of pool leaks. We use the most advanced pool leak detection equipment to precisely identify the damaged area and provide remedial measures before it is too late.
With the use of our state-of-the-art detection tools, The Home Zen is able to easily locate and repair leaks without causing major disruption to the pool or having to empty the entire water content of the pool, just to identify the leak. Most pool leaks can be spotted near the filtration pipe area or in a crevice near the pool lights.
The three major concern areas for a pool leak include; structural leaks, fitting leaks, and plumbing leaks.
Structural Leaks: Sometimes the vessel of the pool itself is not engineered correctly by professionals. This leads to problems in the future, by causing cracks in the pool shell, which are not easy to fix and need immediate attention.
Fitting Leaks: The components such as lights, skimmers, and jets, are to be fitted carefully into the surface of the pool vessel without any chance of error. If the fitting is not done as per standards, there is a good opportunity for pool leaks.Here are some signs that indicate a pool leak:
Plumbing Leaks: Underground leaks are caused due to corrosion or movement in the ground, damaging the plumbing or floor surface. If you think there is a leak of such kind, call for help soon.
Plumbing leaks are caused by the movement of the system. Settling in the ground, for example, can cause systems to move, creating a leak in the plumbing. Corrosion is another issue that may cause a swimming pool's plumbing system to leak.
To determine whether the loss of water is due to evaporation or due to a leak, a simple bucket test can be undertaken.
Besides the bucket test, one can also add food coloring near the problem area. If the leak is present, the food color will get sucked into the crack, which is a confirmation that the leak exists.
Please note: There should be no swimming activity while the test is being undertaken. Make sure that it isn’t raining while the test is ongoing. Ensure that the filter’s autofill system is also turned off.

Concrete Pool leaks can be expensive depending on the gravity of damage that has already been done.
For preventing pool leaks, there is no such shortcut or secret. The only thing to be kept in mind is that the installation needs to be done correctly in the first place so that the pool can withstand the test of time, weather conditions, and usage.
A concrete pool is rather expensive to maintain as compared to the fiberglass pools. The fiberglass pools are low on maintenance and are structured in a way allowing it to sustain itself over long periods.
