ELECTRONIC LEAK DETECTION
Pools can leak and are noted by an obvious water loss. Some can be very slow, and are not much more than evaporation, and some can be very rapid. Whichever the case, pool leaks need to be rectified quickly before they become expensive to repair, cause unnecessary water loss, or cause damage to pool equipment.
Be sure to do the “bucket test” first to test the evaporation rate, and also check that water is not being lost through the backwash. Then call on us to help you with this problem.
How To Do Bucket Test
Pool Matrix utilises the latest electronic leak detection equipment supplied by Leaktronics who have been manufacturing this equipment for many years and distribute worldwide. The system utilises a leak detection amplifier for concrete pools, and an earth sensing device for fibreglass and vinyl pools.
We can also pressure test pipe work to detect leaks in connecting pipe work.
EQUIPMENT UPGRADES INCLUDING SERVICE, REPAIRS & REPLACEMENTS
Pool Matrix can supply and install all major brands of pool equipment. From servicing older equipment, to advice and supply of the latest multi speed pumps.
If you require a new salt cell for your chlorinator and are unsure of the brand, take a photo and we can provide a quote with no “call out”.
Pool pumps can be repairable. Some noisy pumps may just need new bearings and seals.
Call on us for any problems or advice.

THE BUCKET TEST
The “Bucket Test” will determine if water loss in a pool is due to evaporation or a leak:
1. Bring pool water to normal level.
2. Place a brick or weight in the bucket to prevent it from floating.
3. Fill the bucket with pool water to about 3 cm from the top.
4. Place the bucket on the first or second step of the pool.
5. Mark the water level on the inside of the bucket.
6. Shut off the pump and mark the pool level on the outside of the bucket.
7. Resume normal pump operation.
8. After 24 hours, compare the two levels. If the pool water (outside mark) goes down more than the inside water level, there is probably a leak.
