Pool owners are often confused about the difference between a pool leaking versus evaporation. This is a very common question so here are some tips to tell the difference.
First, let’s talk about evaporation. Evaporation varies based on humidity, pool surface area, water to air temperature and wind speed over the pool. Pools in windy areas usually lose more water to evaporation, pools in a humid environment lose less water to evaporation than pools in a dry environment and pools lose more water to evaporation when they have more surface area.
Let’s try the bucket test to determine if it is evaporation or you need us to find a leak.
