How To Trace A Leak In Your Pool, Ways To Find A Leak In Your Pool, Pond Repair

So you're losing water in the pond, and I do not know where the water is going. Here are some things you can do to find out where the water is going.

1. Make sure there are no leaks in pipes to the outside of the pond. To do this, the feeling throughout the country in which the plumbing is the water pump is not here yet. Check for damp or wet soil. If you find an area that gets wet, carefully dig deeper and wider, is the source of water, or uphill from there. Key-note: the water flows through gravity, so if you find the area where the wet earth, the water could come from there or climb. It is necessary to trace the source of water. To do this step correctly, however, may need to disable the combat system, etc., to dry the ground so you can easily search for a wet area caused by the loss.

2. If you have searched along the entire pipeline in your area and found no leaks, then you want to check your pond liner. To do this, turn off the water source (ie the pump) for a few days if possible. (If you have fish, you may need to provide ventilation for them during this time of an air pump or a ventilation system.) Let's fall in water level is the lowest point in the pond. Then, when sure it is at its lowest level, look carefully around the pond only a little above or in the water. Find all the tears, the projections of stones, etc., which may be the source of the leak from a puncture in the wall.

If by chance your water level remains the same after you turn off your water feature and the water level in your pond has remained the same, then you probably missed it somewhere in your plumbing or drain comes from.

3. If you are sure that the plumbing does not miss a boat pond, you should consider your features like a water fountain or a waterfall. Fontana is a day of wind can easily blow the water out of the edges of the pond. Typically, the height of the fountain should be less than half the diameter of the pond. For example, if the fountain shoots water up to 6 meters in length, then the pond should be at least 12 feet in diameter, preferably much higher.

If you do not have a fountain, but there is a waterfall, and there is no leak anywhere else, check the entire area of ​​the waterfall. If the cascade is not built properly, water can flow behind rocks and boulders, where the water is difficult to detect unless you can dig deep, and the tears could have been done under the rock, when the is installed. In this case, unfortunately, to terminate its own waterfall and built properly to avoid future losses.

While repairing a Leak If you have found the cause of the leak in your pond by a pump or pipe connectors, make sure to cut your plumbing and replace it correctly taking your plumber.

If you have found the cause of the leak in the pond of a hole in the tank line, then you will need to carefully prepare the coating to repair the leak. This can lead to a reduction of water in the pond several inches below the leak, clean the skin very, very well, paving the area with the first adhesive quickly and then place another piece of the lining of the patch (cover band) on it and seal the edges, you can do the trick. If possible, get to the source of the problem though. (For example, removal of the rock or root that caused the puncture, for starters.) Therefore, you can repair the hole properly.
