IS IT A LEAK OR EVAPORATION? In the summer, evaporation can be significant. In the summer you can loose 2-4cm per week and with very strong winds you can loose that in a day. If there is doubt, one way to confirm for yourself if you have a leak is to do a ‘bucket test’. 1. Fill a bucket with water. 2. Put the bucket on the steps of the pool. 3. Put bricks or stones to keep it down. 4. Mark the inner water level 5. Mark the outer water level 6. Wait 24 hours. If the inner level drop slower than the outer level, you have a leak.
