Pool & Spa Leak Detection
Swimming pools and spas are major sources of water consumption. If you have a pool or spa, you can expect them to impact your water bill, but if that bill has risen considerably recently, there’s a chance that your pool could be leaking. Pools and spas can leak in various places, from leaks caused by cracks in your pool’s surface to breaks on an underground plumbing line.
One of the most difficult aspects of dealing with a pool leak in the Stockton, Livermore, and Modesto area is determining whether or not you have one in the first place. Evaporation can cause your pool’s water level to drop, so having to top off your pool water isn’t uncommon. So how can you tell if your pool is leaking? There are a few DIY leak detection methods you can try. The most popular method is the bucket test.
To perform this test:
- Place a bucket on the bench or top step of your pool, with a heavy stone inside to keep it weighed down.
- Add water to the bucket until the water level inside it matches the pool’s water level around it.
- Mark the pool water level on the side of the bucket with a piece of tape.
- Leave the bucket for a few days while running the system on its normal cycle.
Avoid using your pool at this time. Check the water levels within and around the bucket a few days later; they should be the same, as both would be equally impacted by evaporation. If the water around the bucket is lower, there’s a good chance you have a leak.
If you suspect a leak in your pool, our Stockton pool leak experts can help find exactly where that leak is originating from. We can examine your pool’s surface for signs of cracks, pressure test every plumbing line, and track down the leak so that we can repair it or direct you to a licensed contractor. By pinpointing a break under your decking, our team can minimize excavation and get your plumbing repaired efficiently and effectively. Our leak detector can conduct temporary repairs to your pool’s surface to help alleviate any immediate water loss, but major structural repairs should be performed by a pool contractor. Our repair team performs skimmer replacements and repairs as well as return, suction, sweep, and fill line repairs. By finding the leak first, we can help ensure that the repair work is done more quickly and effectively.

We understand that you want your pool and deck to remain in pristine condition after all pipes have been repaired. Our goal is to minimize excavation, so we can restore your property to its original condition after repairs are complete. We can ensure we only excavate the necessary areas to conduct our repairs by using precise leak detection techniques.
Once the leak has been located, we’ll make a clean hole by saw-cutting the concrete. Then we’ll carefully excavate and expose the pipe. We’ll replace the damaged section of pipe using our signature, proven techniques, then retest the pipe to ensure all leaks have been properly repaired before backfilling the hole. We strive to match the color and texture of the surrounding deck so that when our repairs are done, your pool area will look as beautiful as it did before you ever had a leak.
Replacing your skimmer involves much more than just putting in a new basket. Your skimmer system is an integral part of the pool’s wall and is plumbed with various pipes encased in gunite. If your skimmer needs to be replaced, it must be done properly so that the skimmer won’t shift or separate from the pool wall.
Bullseye Leak Detection is the trusted source for skimmer replacements in California’s Central Valley. We have the experience and know-how needed to perform these highly technical repairs. We cut no corners, pinning in new rebar and pouring a concrete collar around the skimmer’s body for a structure and seal as reliable as the original, if not more so. After we install a new skimmer, we always retest the plumbing to ensure that the structure and connected pipes are free of any leaks. Finally, we patch the deck and skimmer throat with aesthetic detail.
Polyurenthane Grout Injection
When a leak develops in your pool, you need a reliable, waterproof method of sealing and repairing that leak. At Bullseye Leak Detection in the Stockton area, we use polyurethane—an injectable, water-activated, waterproof foam—to permanently seal leaks around pool skimmers.
Our technician will place protective plastic over the area, bore holes into the pool wall, intersect the structural crack, and insert injection nozzles. We’ll then pump polyurethane grout into the ports to fill any gaps and spaces behind the gunite, which would otherwise be inaccessible using traditional patching methods. As the polyurethane permeates the space, it reacts with the water that has leaked from your pool, transforming it into a waterproof foam that expands and seals the leak.
We provide reliable, professional pool leak repairs that are backed by a one-year guarantee. If you believe your pool is leaking, contact Bullseye Leak Detection in California’s Central Valley to schedule an inspection.
