It may take months to notice a swimming pool leak if you have an autofill by Austech Pools, Leak Detection and Repairs

Don’t let your swimming pool cost you more than it has to!

When a typical swimming pool that does not have an autofill is leaking, it is pretty noticeable considering the water level will drop. Pools that have either manual or electronic type auto fill devices will keep filling the pool even though the pool may be leaking.

Because of water conservation issues, it is rumored that some cities might ban the use of such autofill devices. Cities in Travis and Williamson Counties including Austin, Lakeway, Cedar Park, Georgetown, Leander and San Marcos are just to name a few.

If consumers who have an autofill on their swimming pool would only shut the swimming pool equipment down for 1 day every 2 months, many of these problems would not exist.  Normal evaporation rates vary from different areas and different terrains. Example: a house high up on a hill in Lakeway will usually have more evaporation due to wind than a typical home in Austin.

Either way a good rule of thumb is that a typical pool should not lose more than an inch of water max due to evaporation. If your pool is losing more than these rates you need to call a qualified swimming pool leak detection specialist who specializes in swimming pool leak detection and repair like Austech Pools.   Swimming pool leak detection and repair is all that we do.

Depending on the circumstances, Austech Pools may be able to perform an underground pool leak repair.

A few weeks ago, we received a phone call from a customer who was experiencing a swimming pool leak in the Austin area.  The customers’ swimming pool wasn’t losing a lot of water quickly, it was losing a minimal amount of water, but there were visible air bubbles coming from the swimming pool return lines.  The customer had no idea what was happening and after weeks of trying to self diagnose what the problem was, they decided to give Austech Pools a call to perform a swimming pool leak detection for them.

After testing all other components in the swimming pool, including the structure, we determined there was a leak in the skimmer suction line.   Fortunately for this customer, they had a brick paver patio and we were able to make the skimmer line repair underground.

Cracks can appear in the floor and wall tiles of the pool. The cracked tiles may also fall off altogether. If this happens, you may be able to apply adhesive and reapply a new tile. If however, the damaged tiles have produced some structural damage to the pool, the problem is more serious. In a situation like this, Torque Lock™ staples must be used.

Cracks can also appear in swimming pools with concrete ‘shells’. This is often a result of naturally-occurring movement in the surrounding ground. If the damage to the concrete is minor, this can be easily repaired with our guaranteed, patented Torque Lock Staples.
