Is Your Pool Ready for Winter? Don’t Wait – Contact Bremner Pool Today!

As the swimming season draws to a close, addressing any suspected leaks in your pool before the colder weather and freezing temperatures take a toll on your oasis is essential. Don’t wait until next year’s opening to discover a host of problems – act now to safeguard your pool for future enjoyment. Leaks can originate from various sources:

  • Cracks in the pool foundation
  • Plumbing issues
  • Leaks in connections and drains

When water escapes from your pool into the ground, the impact depends on your yard’s layout. If left unattended, the surrounding ground may become saturated, potentially causing the pool to shift or even pop out of the ground. This often happens when leaked water contacts the surrounding groundwater, especially in conditions with a low and relatively high water table.

Leaky pools are no laughing matter – you’ll likely notice a spike in your water bill, too. A quarter-inch per day leak in an average 350-square-foot pool amounts to 55.6 gallons lost daily, totalling over 1,700 gallons of water per month.

Vinyl linings are particularly vulnerable to leaks. Excessive water loss over the winter can cause the lining to loosen and separate from the pool floor. In the worst-case scenario, it can lead to floor damage and even the collapse of the steel-wall structure.

So, how can you tell if your pool is leaking?

  • Keep an eye out for soggy, waterlogged spots in your yard.
  • If you notice a consistent drop in water level that you can’t explain, it’s a red flag.

While other factors like evaporation due to hot weather, splash out, backwashing, and prolonged high winds can contribute to water loss, consistent and unexplained drops in water level, especially during different weather conditions, should not be ignored.

What qualifies as excessive water loss? Generally, it’s more than 1/4” to 1/2” per day.
