A swimming pool is a great investment for your home. There is a sense of confidence in the quality of the swimming pool if you hired the contractor, selected the materials and design, and create your own pool. But, what if you are purchasing a home with an existing pool? How would you know if the pool is working as intended? Are there any repairs needed? Bi-State Pool & Spa offers residential pool inspection services and leak detection to put your mind at ease.
The inspection we perform is a visual and operational inspection of the pool and equipment. After our inspection is completed, we provide a report with repair recommendations and referrals to capable companies.
An average inspection takes about an hour and the fee is due upon completion and submission of the pool inspection report.
We do not make any repairs during an inspection nor do we perform any pressure testing of plumbing lines as part of an inspection. If there is a reason to suspect underground lines are leaking we would make the recommendation to perform pressure testing. For more information or to schedule your pool inspection, contact us today.
Pool Inspection with Pressure Test - $850.00
Visual Pool Inspection (No Pressure Test) - $500.00
It's normal for your pool to lose small amounts of water, thanks to normal pool use, environmental conditions, water temperature and even backwashing the filter. However, there are instances when water loss is problematic, which can cause severe damage if not repaired immediately.
Before you call the professionals, you can perform a bucket test to determine if your water loss is due to high evaporation rates or if there is indeed a possible leak. Conduct a bucket test by following these steps:
- Bring pool water to a normal level
- Fill a 5-gallon bucket with your pool water about 3 to 4 inches from the top
- Place a bucket on the first or second step of the pool (preferably the second step without immersing it)
- Mark the water level on the inside of the bucket with a marker or electrical tape
- Shut off your pool pump and mark the pool water level on the outside of the bucket
- Resume normal pump operation, however, make sure auto/manual fill valve is off during the test
- After 24 hours, compare the two levels. If the pool water (outside mark) goes down more than the inside water level, there may be a leak.
If you've determined there is a possible leak, contact us immediately. While most leaks are easily repairable and require little invasive repair work, those that are left undetected and unrepaired could result in serious and costly structural damage.
Our leak detection experts use state-of-the-art equipment and their extensive knowledge to find the origin of the leak and repair it efficiently and effectively. Contact us today to help get your pool leak in control and back to working order.
