Consult an underground leak detection service that specializes in pool leaks. They may be able to fix with out tearing up the deck.

Or, you can grab a kit. There are kits nowadays that you can use to find and stop leaks. Also, you can use a dye test! What you do is get a dye syringe and the dye will actually lead you to the leak by "leaking" into the hole. Then you can fix it with vinyl putty! And, VIOLA, it's fixed!!!!

Should you replace your 25-year-old inground pool vinyl liner if it is wrinkling or should you wait until it leaks?

I think it is a judgment call. I would not replace it until it leaks. On the other hand, it will probably fail during the swimming season. Consult your swimming pool profesional for a second and perhaps more reliable opinion.


What is the best way to repair a growing sinkhole forming under the concrete deck of your inground pool?

Sink holes around pools are commonly caused by leaks in the pool or underground pipes. This affects the structural integrity of the pool and what I have seen as a permanent fix is to pump concrete into the sink hole after the leak is repaired. it is fluid enough to fill the hole completely and will harden for support, you will never compact dirt enough to give the pool wall support.

Are alpha particles suitable for detecting underground leaks in pipes?

Alpha particles are simple helium nuclei, and form the bulk of ionizing radiation. However, since alpha particles are much larger and heavier than beta radiation (electrons) and gamma radiation (photons), they are easily blocked by lightweight solids, such as paper. Therefore, they would be a poor means of detecting underground leaks in pipes, since they would not travel well through dense ground or metal.


Does Rainbird make water leak detectors for underground home sprinkler systems?

There is no leak detector system made by Rainbird but there are ways to identify leaks in your system. One way is to turn off all water and see if your water meter is still running. Finding leaks can be difficult so you may want to contact a specialist.
