Pool Repairs - Pool 7
Broken pipes are a major cause of water loss. The overnight drop in the water level can be anything from 2 inches to 12 or more.
All these pipes are from one pool, the soil had not been compacted down properly round the pipes. After 1 rainy season the soil all compressed fracturing the pipes as it did so.
We can monitor your leaking pool over a week or more and try to determine where the leak is by the level of the water. This can result in minimal work and disruption to the pool. The surrounding patio had to be taken up to access the pipes below.
This T-joint was cracked at the bottom of the skimmer. It was leaking faster than the hose pipe trying to fill the pool.
This fractured pipe was on the return inlet, the leak was slow but significant under normal conditions. More water loss occured when the pump was in use and the water pressure increased.
The pipe on the left was constantly dripping water, not a major water loss overnight but enough to cause concern. The pipe was sealed with mastic rather than the proper glue.
The sleeve joining 2 pipes, on the right here, has fractured. This would result in major water loss
