How can I tell my pool is leaking?
You can determine whether the pool is leaking by performing a simple test using a bucket of water. First you fill the pool to a normal level. You then place a bucket on a step of the pool, and you fill it with water up to the same water level with the pool. You then shut off the pump and then mark the water level on the inner side of the bucket and the outer side of the bucket. You then let the bucket remain there for about 48 hours. If, at the end of it, the water level dropped more on the outer side of the bucket, there is most likely a leak. If it rains within the 48 hours, the test should be done again.
