Before hiring someone to perform a swimming leak detection on your pool, ask these important questions:
1. Are they Licensed & Insured? Is their license posted on their website as required by California state law? Here is a link to check on any licensed contractor. If they are not licensed, they're not bonded and insured
2. Do they answer their phones or do you get a voicemail? Partner with a company that is going to be responsive, should problems arise. If you have a problem, do you think they're going to return a message that you left on their voicemail?
3. Do they have a physical address? Fly-by-night companies use P.O. boxes and anonymous mailbox store addresses. And be very careful of fake reviews.

Return lines are usually the first lines in the plumbing system that leak. Being on the pressure side, return lines and pressure side cleaning lines literally take a beating by being subjected to very high pressure chlorinated water.
Improper back-filling, ground shifting, and expansive soils also often lead to return line failure.
Fact- 90% of return line failure occurs at a fitting and not in the pipe.
