Vinyl Liner Leak Detection

Why would you want a leak detection done on your pool?

  If your inground vinyl liner pool is losing water and you think there is a hole in the liner then give Rustic Pools, Inc. a call.  We have an advanced system for finding holes in liners.  This system is call a Electronic Leak Detector.

How it works

     The rod on the end of the telescopic pole emits a small electric current into the water out of one end.  The electric current runs through the water until it finds a ground.  A hole in the liner acts like a ground.  Electricity always runs to the ground.  The other end of the rod  detects the hole in the liner.  When a hole is found the head set we wear gives off a high pitched ring. 

Things to Watch Out For

     The only things that might cause problems are all the screws and/or a ladder in the pool.  When the electricity is sent out of the rod it tries to find a ground.  The metal screws and the ladder both go to ground.  The electricity runs to the screws and ladder.  We have ways for working around lights and ladders if they are in the pool.  When the light is covered, and ladder is removed, the electric current goes toward a potential hole in the liner.  The screws around the face plates and steps do go to ground.  The leak detector does ring by the face plates and steps but if there is a hole by them the leak detector does ring at a higher pitch so we can tell the difference.
