We can help with precise swimming pool leak detection in Perth. Whether it’s swimming pool leak detection or leaks in pipes and plumbing surrounding your pool, The Pool Renovators have extensive knowledge and advanced equipment to pinpoint leaks and repair them.

Over a swimming pool’s lifespan, it is highly likely to develop a leak at some stage, resulting in excessive water loss. Small leaks usually escalate to larger problem if left untreated, resulting in large water bills, excessive chemical use, and damage to your pool surrounds, such as concrete cracks and sinking paving.

Swimming Pool leak dectection process 

Generally, if you are using excessive chemicals or are having to top up your swimming pool more than usual, it may indicate a swimming pool leak. Early attention is the best course of action to avoid small problems becoming large ones.


A good method to determine if your swimming pool is either leaking or just evaporating is the bucket test:

  • Fill a bucket with pool water to almost the top and place on a step to keep both at a consistent temperature.
  • Mark the water level on the inside of the bucket.
  • Mark the swimming pool water level on the outside of the bucket.
  • After 24 hours check to see if the pool level has dropped more than the inside bucket level.  If it has it may indicate a swimming pool leak.

It is also a good idea to check this with and without the pool filtration or solar system working.  This is to determine if it is the pool shell or pipes/plumbing that may be leaking.
