Leak Detection and Repair

 

Pond Liner Leak

Pond leaks can be a real headache for any pond owner. Constant filling is not only hard on the pond owner, but also on the pond life.

Generally, leaks can be separated into two issues.  The leak is either in the main pond body or the waterfall/plumbing system.

To help troubleshoot this problem we ask that you turn off all pumps and fill the pond to the maximum operating level.  Find a reference point and let the pond sit for 24 hours.  Take a measurement to note how much water loss there is, if any.

If the pond does leak down, then the problem is most likely in the main pond liner. Let it sit for another 24 hours. We need to find the area where the water level will settle out.  That will help find any possible holes in the pond liner.

If the pond does not leak after 24 hours then turn the pump on again and note water loss for another 24 hours while it is running. Make sure to fill the pond back up to a reference point to get an accurate reading. If the pond leaks now then the problem is in the waterfall or plumbing system.

This troubleshooting information will provide us with ideas to solve your leak problem quicker. This should be done before we come out for service.
