Types of Leak Tests:
Our process begins with a visual inspection for visual leaks, should we not find a leak at the first site, the next step of our process to find a leak will be a dye test, and lastly, our sonar test.
1. Visual Test: Our Leak technician will arrive onsite and evaluate visually. During the visitation, our leak technician it starts with evaluating all of the equipment, extrusions, waterline tile, coping, back wash valve, walk the site for any water saturation and any visible cracks.
2. Dye Test: The next phase of the leak detection test would be a dye test. If the technician should not find any visual leaks our tech will look below surface water level. We apply a dye in all of the fittings (extrusions), returns lines, drains, suction lines, lights, skimmer throat, housing, conduits, or anywhere there are cracks. All of these areas are potential places where the pool or spa can leak. Green, purple, or red dye will be applied. With dark surfaces we use green dye and with lighter surfaces we use purple or red dye.
3. Sonar Test: We are able to find leaks without drilling holes into the pavers. We are able to put the lines under pressure and we are able to find where the leak is determined. We have a gage that we install and use special equipment that we can pinpoint where the underground leak is located. We can identify where the leak is underground which is called the subterranean.
Once we find a leak, we want to ensure during the process that we found all leaks, if there is more than one. We want our clients to feel comfortable and ensured all leaks are being found. We can identify where the leak is located, how much water is leaking, and we can provide in our reports how to repair the leak(s) found. Our leak detection report will be sent within 24-48 business hours after visiting. A report will be sent in writing with an estimated cost to repair the leak(s).
