Bring pool water to the normal operating level.
Fill a 5 gallon bucket with the pool's water about 3-4 inches from top.
Place bucket on first or second step of pool, spa or fountain without immersing it.
With pencil, marker or electrical tape, mark the water level on inside of bucket.
Shut off the pump and mark the pool, spa or fountain level on the outside of the bucket.
Resume normal pump operation. Make sure that the auto fill valve is off during test.
After 24 hours, compare the two levels. If the pool water (outside mark) goes down more than the inside water level (inside mark), there may be a leak. The Bucket Test is one that requires Acurracy In Measurement. Usually our clients just know there is a leak based on the water level going down faster than normal. Should you question the results of a bucket test or the water level just seem irregular or going down to fast it is highly recommended to obtain a leak testing service.
