Swimming Pool Leak Detection

Leak detection in Swimming Pools is something Trace Surveys have a lot of experience in. Whether your pool is a large commercial facility, domestic pool or even a natural pool, Trace Surveys have the expertise and equipment to locate your leaks.

If your pool is leaking, please give us a call to discuss survey options that suit your facility.

Not convinced? Here’s some of the techniques:

Leaks from swimming pool pipes

Trace Gas Leak Detection – The pipes are sealed and an inert gas is injected into the leaking pipe. The trace gas permeates most soils and finishes and is detectable at surface level using a special sensor.

Ground Microphones – Very sensitive microphones which amplify leak noise so that we can hear water or trace gas escaping from leaks.

Pipe CCTV – Small and large diameter cameras which push through the pipes and allow us to see faults in pipes. Our cameras emit a magnetic field which can be traced at surface level. Once we are looking at a fault, we can mark the exact point above it.

Leaks through swimming pool structures

Electronic Membrane Testing – Most pool liners don’t conduct electricity. Electrical current does pass through holes in the liner. Our equipment introduces a small pulse of current through the water which can be followed to the leaks.

Moisture Analysis of the pool structure – Non-destructive measurements of moisture in masonry or concrete structure to assess likely leakage paths.

Dye Testing – Using specialist dyes to colour the pool water which allows us to see and confirm leak locations –

Swimming pool pipe tracing

Electronic pipe tracing – An electric pulse is introduced through the pipe wall or through a cable which is inserted through the pipe. The current creates a magnetic field and we trace that field at ground level.

Acoustic pipe tracing – We have devices that introduce noise through the water inside a pipe. The noise can then be traced at surface level using specialist listening device. This method is very helpful for tracing plastic pipes.
