Pool Leak Bucket Test


To complete this test allow 24 hours. This is to test for loss of water above evaporation levels in your pool. Pool equipment must be switched off when marking levels and when taking measurements.


Step 1 - Make sure the pool is at operating level
Step 2 - Fill a plastic bucket 50mm (2inches) from the top with pool water.
Step 3 - Place the bucket on a pool step so that the pool water level is around ¾ of the way up the outside of the bucket.
Step 4 - Mark the water level inside the bucket.
Step 5 - Mark the pool water level outside the bucket.
Step 6 - Make sure no one uses the pool during the test.
Step 7 - After 24 hours compare both levels marked on the inside and outside of the bucket
Step 8 - The water loss, if evaporation only, should measure the same inside and outside the bucket.
Step 9 - If the water level measures lower outside the bucket than inside this proves the presence of a pool leak.

If it rains during the test, you will have to repeat all steps.

I received excellent, prompt and professional service from Chris, who went the extra mile, explained and provided great tips on pump and pool operation and maintenance. A really good guy to deal with. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.

After a poor success rate with a pool company, I'm so glad I called Chris to find the mystery leak. He was thorough in his checking, and detailed in explaining what he had done. He bravely faced the winter chill in diving down to repair the leak. Having never owned a pool, he was very helpful in also providing advice and professional input. Well worth the money, I wish I'd called him sooner. Highly recommended.

Chris was spot on, he was very prompt at fixing our problem with the least amount of drama involved we are so happy to have found the right person for the job! We will remember him if we ever have a problem again. The best thing of all we have showers, and flushing toilets again thank you so much.

Chris is very friendly and professional. Dived straight into the pool even though the weather was still quite cool. Found the leaks and fixed them. He also provided great advice regarding the maintenance of the swimming pool. Reasonable price as well. Before I called Chris, I tried calling a bigger company, left a message and never heard back from them. I then called Chris who called me back on the same day and arranged an appointment with me. Great service. I would highly recommend him.

Janswee Real True Local Review

Prompt, efficient and suprising more than willing to offer details as to how i could fix it myself if i wished to go that way. After i fixed the initial problem i desided to upgrade my pool pump and clorinator and he helped me set it up on he weekend as part of the service. More than happy and i would recommend Chris to anyone.
