Leaks in your pool
Lots of privately owned, co-owned or semi-public swimming pools, made of concrete, liner, or shell are subject to water leaks. These leaks are a real irritation because they consume a lot of water. Often, we do not realize it, but when the water bill comes we know something has to be done. Where do these leaks come from? How do we repair them? So many questions ……. BNIP can answer them.
So, where can these leaks come from?
A leak can come from different areas in the pool. Very rarely; from my experience, does a leak stem from the structure. The most likely areas are; evacuation outlets, expulsion outlets, the skimmer, spotlights, vacuum heads and water level regulators.
It could also be situated in the pipes or in the pump house.
There are several different methods that can be used when searching for a leak; putting pressure through pipes, using a camera to inspect, tracing the flow of liquids etc.
How to repair leaks?
Generally, a professional is needed because it’s his specialty.
However, there are sealing liquids on the market that could help you out. (Read the instructions very carefully).
How do I know my pool has a leak?
Very simple, take a bucket and fill it with water to a certain mark. Measure the level of your pool. Leave the bucket next to your pool so that the different climatic elements will have the same impact on your pool and the bucket of water. Go back in 48 hours and measure the difference in the levels. If they are different, you probably have a leak in your pool. It would be ideal to repair leaks in the off season.

Be careful of marketing traps! Very often, swimming pool heat pumps are sold on the Web, by sites more or less specialized in pools and sell machines more or less recognized BUT with a SAV (AFTER-SALES SERVICE) that is very difficult to access.
BNIP installs and takes care of the SAV (AFTER-SALES SERVICE) of heat pumps no matter what the make.
However, all the craftsmen will tell you, it's better to buy the heat pump and install it with the same person ( BNIP) because you know what the end result will be: your comfort and your serenity.
