So you think you’ve got a leak in your pool? The cost of water loss is no laughing matter. You’ve seen a rise in the water bill, or maybe the pool or the spa looks like the water level is dropping? There is so much more than the potential that a small crack has appeared, or that a gasket is failing. Pools have intricate plumbing set-ups and none are the same – but they all share some common principals. Finding a leak in that pool environment requires a trained professional with the experience to know those common principles and to check them for the sings of leaks. You can count on CalTech to find those leaks accurately and to stop the cost of water loss.

Using the equipment manufactured by LeakTronics, the leader in electronic listening equipment, we can accurately locate leaks in a pool or spa non-invasively. Most often without having to dive into a pool; instead, we use highly sensitive hydrophones to hear where the leak occurs.

The weight of water pushing out on a crack, a pipe break or a leak can be easily identified by listening for it. The pressure of the water’s weight causes a whooshing sound as it tries to push out of the area of the leak. With 8+ pounds of pressure per gallon of water, a crack or separation is going to resist that water flow and the noise of that resistance is clearly audible with the equipment and methods we use to find leaks.

For accurate and precision swimming pool and spa leak detection, in pipes or plumbing lines, in the pool equipment or the pool shell, you’ll know what’s leaking and we’ll discuss the right way to make permanent repairs.
