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. Fill bucket with pool water to about one inch from top.
  3. Place bucket on first or second step of pool.
  4. Mark water level on inside of bucket.
  5. Shut off pump and mark pool level on outside of bucket.
  6. Resume normal pump operation.
  7. 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.
  8. In case of rain, repeat the test.
  9. Test is not valid after 24 hours.

Calculating Water Loss:

How much water is your swimming pool losing?

It takes .62 gallons of water to cover 1 sq. ft. 1" deep.

An Example: A 16' x 32' pool drops 1"

Area = 512 sq. ft. multiplied by .62 = 317.44 gallons
