Pool leak detection ranges from simple to complex. Either way, the right equipment for the job ensures accuracy of detection and a correct diagnosis for repair. Here’s how we use our state-of-the-art equipment to efficiently find and fix pool leaks:
Leaks Within Lines In Pools and Underground
We use a F.L.A.S.H. leak locator made by industry-leader LeakTronics that finds leaks and transmits a signal to identify the precise location of the leak. The F.L.A.S.H. can detect leaks in unseen places in pools such as skimmer lines, main drain lines, return lines, cleaning lines, and in-floor systems. For spas, it can detect leaks in the jets and the venturi lines.
Here’s how we detect your leaks with a F.L.A.S.H.:
- The F.L.A.S.H. is a tiny microphone on the end of a scope.
- We guide the scope into the line and listen with headphones that detect the smallest sounds.
- We mark the location with the scope when we locate the leak.
Structural cracks must be repaired before problems escalate. We use Torque Lock™ staples to permanently repair structural cracks. Torque Lock’s reliable 10+ year history makes it the best method for preserving the structure of concrete, gunite, shotcrete, and poured block pools. When Torque Lock staples came on the market, Pool & Spa News named it a ‘Top 50 Product.’ Today, Torque Lock products are in use worldwide.
The staples are metal ‘bars’ that are embedded in the surface of the pool, straddling the crack, and spaced along the length crack. We drill an expansion joint at the base of the crack to keep the damage from spreading. The metal bar holds in place with epoxy, and a torque wrench sets and locks two pins in the metal bar. Then, we apply plaster to cover the staple, making the repair transparent.
