How Do I know if my Pool is Leaking?
As pools and spa’s age there are a number of things that can cause them to leak. The sealants can deteriorate, leaks can appear in any of the plumbing fittings and accessories, cracks may occur in the pipes or even in the shell of the pool itself if it shifts or settles.
If you find you’re routinely adding 50mm or more of water a week, or notice a regular substantial drop in water level, you could have a leak or multiple leaks.
All pools & spa’s will naturally lose water to evaporation or to water splashing out. So how do I know if my pools leaking or not? One DIY pool leak test you can do is the Bucket Test.

How to do the Bucket Test
- Ensure the pool is filled to its normal level.
- Grab a good watertight bucket and fill it with your pool water so it is just a few centimeters from the top.
- Set the bucket on the top step of your pool so the top half of the bucket is out of the pool.
- Turn off the pool pump.
- Mark the level of the bucket water on the inside of the bucket.
- Mark the level of the pool water on the outside of the bucket.
- Turn the pool pump back on so it will continue normal operation.
- After 24hrs, turn off the pool pump and recheck the water levels of both and compare the two.
If both water levels have dropped equally, this is just evaporation. If the pool water has dropped more than the bucket, this could mean you have a leak somewhere in your pool.
The evaporation rate for each day is different, so the amount of water lost to evaporation can vary if you perform this test multiple times. You can check the evaporation rates for our area here.
Keep in mind though, if it rains within the 24hr test period, the DIY pool leak test will need to be re-performed.
