Do a Bucket Test!
It’s not unusual for your pool to lose some water. In fact, it is quite normal to lose between 1/8” and 1/4” per day due to evaporation alone, without counting splash outs. But, how can you tell if your water is leaking at a faster rate than usual? Before you call a professional, do a bucket test to determine if there’s a leak or just evaporation.
How to Perform the Bucket Test
Make a note to check the bucket at exactly the 24 hour mark, as waiting longer than this can give inaccurate results. If it rains you will have to wait and start over when there is a clear forecast.
Reduce evaporation with a solar blanket
