- Normal evaporation can be as much as 1” per week. The bucket test determines if your pool is leaking, and it is very simple to perform:
- Fill a bucket with pool water to about 1” from the top.
- Place the bucket on the first step in the shallow end of the pool.
- Using a marker, mark the water level on the inside of the bucket.
- Mark the level of the pool water on the outside of the bucket.
- Wait 24 hours.
- Compare the water loss on the inside of the bucket with the loss on the outside.
- If you see a greater loss on the outside of the bucket than on the inside, the pool has a leak. If the loss is equal or undetectable, then it can be attributed to evaporation.
