There are differences in performing swimming pool leak detections in different cities. For instance, in newer construction, PVC lines, plastic skimmers, and plastic main drain pots are usually the first places to look into.
In Woodland Hills however, we are usually dealing with old swimming pools with a whole set of different swimming pool leaks. The biggest challenge with these old swimming pools is the fact that many of them have been remodeled multiple times. Many of these pools have plaster covering structural cracks which makes them very difficult to find.
Some other differences between swimming pools in Woodland Hills and other pools are the terrain on which they were built. A problem with a retaining wall can usually cause major issues with both the swimming pool structure and plumbing as well. For this reason, it is very important for a homeowner to address a leak issue immediately and not delay a leak detection for weeks or months.
Believe it or not, we find many multiport leaks in Woodland Hills. Because of the terrain, many people can’t see where their waste lines are running and cannot see water running to waste when the pool pump is running in regular filtration mode. For this reason we recommend installing a ball valve on all waste lines to solve this problem.
If you are going to be purchasing a home with an existing swimming pool in Woodland Hills, we highly reccomend you call us to perform a complete swimming pool inspection and a swimming pool leak detection for an added fee. You don’t want to purchase a house and find out a week later that these problems exist.
