How To Bucket Test Your Pool For Leaks

In order to perform this test you will need the following 3 household items: 

  • Bucket
  • Brick, or stone 
  • Tape, or Pencil


Step 1: Place a brick or stone into the bucket then place it on the first or second step of the pool.


Step 2: Fill the bucket with water up to the same level of the water in the pool and mark the water levels using the tape or pencil on the bucket and on the pool.


Step 3: Wait 24 hours and check to see if the pool's water level has dropped lower than the bucket's. If it has, you have a leak in your pool. If the levels are equal, your pool is not leaking.

My Pool Is Leaking, What Now?

If you have discovered that your pool is leaking, you can follow these next 3 steps in order to easily narrow down the water loss problem to a pool plumbing issue, or if the leak stems from within the pool's interior. These next steps will save you money on unnecessary diagnosis and will help save you time in getting your pool leak issue resolved.

Step 1: Turn off all pool equipment (pump, heater, etc)

Step 2: Insert your winter plugs into the pool jets and the skimmer(s)

Step 3: Monitor your water level over the next 24hrs

If your pool did not lose any more water after completing these steps, your water loss problem is related to the pool's plumbing system. If the leak persisted after completing these steps, your water loss problem is related to the pool's interior.
