Is my swimming pool leaking?

Updated: Oct 25, 2022

This is a common question pool owners constantly ask themselves, and Evaporation can account for quite a bit of water loss naturally!

The following factors will increase water loss through evaporation:

  1. Water temperature

  2. Wind

  3. Dew point and humidity

  4. Water movement (spillways, water features)

The general rule of thumb, is if you’re losing more than 1/8” to 1/4” per day, you may have a swimming pool leak!

Did you know, an average leak of 1” per day can cost you $100 or more per month in extra water consumption and chemicals! This doesn’t account for the potential costs of erosion and structural issues a leak will eventually cause, costing thousands, or more in repairs. check out this EVAPORATION CALCULATOR to see if you may be leaking.
