Finding & Fixing a Swimming Pool Leak

The use of a special marking can be utilized for 24 hours to check how much water is lost after a certain period of time. Your pool should not lose more than ¼ inch per day.
Compressed air might be used to pressurize a pipe. The air basically displaces the water in the pipe till it extents to your swimming pool leak. Point bubbles will escape from the hole, and that will help reveal the area of the issue.
