Swimming Pool Leak Detection and Repair, hire a specialist.

Leak Detection

After performing a complete swimming pool leak detection in Austin, we found a suction line leak about three feet back behind the skimmer at the shallow end of a residential pool.  We provided the customer with a complete report of our leak detection finding and continued to follow it up with an estimate for the necessary repair.  The customer decided to use the company who

services their pool to perform the repair.The other company cut the deck at the skimmer area, dug up the skimmer line and told the customer that the pool leak wasn’t there.  The homeowner wasn’t happy and immediately called us.  We went back while the area was still cut open and proceeded to take a look.  We then pressure tested the skimmer line and the water shot up at us.

putting a line under pressure showed the leak

What the pool service guy didn’t know was that suction lines need to sometimes be put under pressure to show their leaks or to saturate an isolated area.   The homeowner then asked us to finish the job.

Note for future reference: let a pool service company perform pool service, let a swimming pool leak detection specialist (such as Austech   Pools) locate and repair swimming pool leaks.

Leak Detection, Pool Repair

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.
