A leaky pool is never fun. Not only can it ruin a relaxing dip in the pool on a hot day, but it can also cause damages that can be costly to repair. Sometimes it can be difficult to know if your pool problems are related to a leak or some other damage.
Here are some of the common signs that point to a pool leak:
- Water loss. Your pool will naturally lose a little bit of water through splashing and evaporation, but if your pool is losing water quickly, typically more than 2 inches a week, you may have a pool leak.
- Puddles in your yard. If it hasn’t rained in a while but you’re noticing puddles or other wet patches in your yard, the culprit might be a pool leak. This leak could be the result of a plumbing issue related to your pool, oftentimes due to erosion caused by underground water movement.
- Rising water bills. There are many different factors that can contribute to a rising water bill, but one of these potential sources of a higher water bill is a pool leak. One way to check and see if your higher bill is due to a leak in your pool is to pay attention to an autofill device for your pool if you have one. If it’s running a lot more than usual, you might have a pool leak.
