Completing the 24-hour on/off test is the best approach to getting a good idea of whether your pool is leaking. Follow the steps below, and call us at (940) 484-4468 with your results. We can help you decide the best approach to locating the leak.

Step 1 – Fill & Mark

  • Fill Up – Fill your pool and or spa to their normal levels. Use tape to mark the water levels.
  • Disable Auto-Fill – Turn off the water supply valve if you have an auto-fill system.
  • Turn Off Pumps – Turn off all circulation pumps and leave them off for 24 hours (unless freezing conditions are expected).
  • Measure – After 24 hours, measure the distance between the original marks and the new water levels in both the pool and the spa.

Step 2 – Refill & 2nd Mark

  • Refill – Bring the pool and spa back to their normal levels.
  • Run the Pump – Keep the main circulation pump running for 24 hours. Do not use any water features or heat the pool.
  • Measure Again – After 24 hours, measure the distance between the original marks and the new water levels.

Step 3 – Check for Leaks

  • Evaporation – If your pool lost ¼ inch or less per day, it’s likely just evaporation.
  • Possible Leak – If your pool lost over ½ inch per day, it is likely because of a leak.
  • Gray Area – Losses between ¼ inch and ½ inch warrant further investigation.
