REAL 'TRUE LOCAL' REVIEWS
CHERLIN, THE GAP
I received excellent, prompt and professional service from Chris, who went the extra mile, explained and provided great tips on pump and pool operation and maintenance. A really good guy to deal with. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.
I highly recommend Chris who provided great service at a very reasonable price and shared a lot of useful pool info as well. Will definitely call again for any leak problem. Thanks Chris.
Prompt, efficient and suprising more than willing to offer details as to how i could fix it myself if i wished to go that way. After i fixed the initial problem i desided to upgrade my pool pump and clorinator and he helped me set it up on he weekend as part of the service. More than happy and i would recommend Chris to anyone.
THE BUCKET TEST
The Bucket Test is a simple task you can undertake to determine whether your pool has a leak. You can run this prior to calling us out to save yourself time and money.
Ensure your pool water is at usual operating level and all pool equipment is turned off.
Fill a plastic bucket with your pool water, leaving approximately a 50mm gap at the top of the bucket.
Mark the internal of the bucket to show the water level.
Place the bucket on a pool step so that the pool water level is around ¾ of the way up the outside of the bucket. You may need to sit something between the step and the bucket to achieve the correct height.
Mark the pool water level outside of the bucket.
Ensure the pool is not used for 24 hours.
If it rains during this time, steps 1-7 will need to be repeated.
After 24 hours, mark the new water levels on the inside and outside of the bucket.
Measure the water loss on both the inside and outside of the bucket. If the water loss is greater on the outside of the bucket than inside, it is highly likely you have a pool leak. Contact us.
