What is the amount an 8 x 4 pool (3 ft. sloping to 5 ft. depth) would the water level be expected to drop under normal conditions i.e. evaporation, usage, wind strengh etc. before you started to think you may have a leak?

I am experiencing around 10 mm per. day, is this normal icon_question.gif icon_question.gif

Thanks in advance for info.

I did take into account the recent heavy rainfall. You will note I said "under normal conditions".

Many thanks for the pm's bilko.

It is a possibility that maybe your pump or filter may be leaking if you have one, it would be better to check that first.

Hi Arboleas,
During the summer you can expect 1 tile maybe a little more due to evaporation.

A simple check is to get a large plastic washing up bowl mark halfway up and fill to the mark - place the bowl in the pool - note the pool level and compare the difference between the two, they should be about the same if the pool looses more it probably has a leak.

A good cover will stop up tp 97% of evaporation losses and can pay for itself quite quickly.

See here for examples of water loss through the summer:

If you have a leak I may be able to suggest a company who can locate and rectify hidden pipework leaks etc. using CCTV cameras.

Hope this helps,
Regards, Dave

Thanks for the replies.

Dave, did you mean one tile per day or week??

I will try out the "bowl method".

Cheers.

Hi H,

During the hotest months it can loose up to a tile per day, it should slow down now unless your pool is heated then it will continue unless you have a cover.

Our collegues tell us that pool covers will become mandatory for pool owners as apparently they have in Australia becaus of the amount of water they consume through evaporation.

Regards, Dave
