The Bucket Test - Diagnose if your pool has a leak

The Bucket Test, also known as the Evaporation Test, is a simple test that you can perform to diagnose if your pool has a leak. To carry out the test you must first turn off all your filtration and then  you will need to fill a bucket with water until approximately  5 mm from the top and then place it next to your pool. You should place it in a spot that receives the same sun and wind exposure as your pool does.


Mark the water level on the bucket with a pencil  and also mark the water level in your pool in the skimmer box.  Wait 24 hours and then check both levels.  Make a note of your result because if the pool loses more water than the bucket did, it means you have a leak. 


For an effcient test - perform overnight or when the pool is not being used so that the water is still for marking and not loosing water from splashing.
