Holes in fixed swimming pools? For fixed swimming pools that is a bit more difficult. For swimming pools filled with water, it is best to clean the swimming pool properly and thoroughly so that there are no dirt particles such as leaves or the like left in the pool and you get a clear view of the pool slide. If the swimming pool is really clean and the water is clear, the dive starts.
It is best if you have a pair of diving goggles, with which you can then search the edge and the bottom of the swimming pool. Holes can be detected so quickly. If you find a hole, then you just should not pull around or tear it. It could be that then the hole in the film gets bigger.
You can find holes in fixed swimming pools from the outside when you take a closer look at the ground around the swimming pool. Mostly one finds then here a damp place, which can point to the hole in the swimming pool. In order to make the search a bit easier, you should not use the swimming pool for a few hours, so that no water can get out of the swimming pool on the floor outside.
To patch the hole, commercially available swimming pool sets are available, which can also be used under water.
However, it does not always have to be holes in the swimming pool itself! It may also happen that connections or hoses are leaking, leading from the cleaning pump to the swimming pool or vice versa. Here you should then take a closer look at the hoses and the connections.
As already mentioned above, you should not use the swimming pool for some time, so that the floor can dry well outside. This makes it easier to locate damp spots caused by leaking water on the film or on hoses and connections.
Fixed or mounted skimmers on the edge of the pool can also become leaky. This usually happens when the seal has become old and porous and the water can escape between the skimmer and the foil and the outside wall of the swimming pool.
But what if you cannot find a hole! In this case you leave the swimming pool for a few days and pay attention to the water level. In the first few hours or days it will sink faster and then eventually hold steady. If the water level no longer drops, then the hole will most likely be at the level of the water level.
