How Much Water Evaporates from a Pool Each Day?

How to Tell if You Have a Pool Leak

Determining whether you have a pool leak can be complicated by the fact that water evaporates from the surface of a pool during a given period of time. Depending on various environmental factors—including your location, average daily temperature, and the amount of sun your pool gets every day—your pool may lose more than half a centimeter of water every day. This translates to just under five centimeters a week, on average. If you notice a significant amount of water loss, it's wise to schedule an appointment with a leak detection specialist. At Canadian Leak Detection™, we can accurately determine if you are experiencing normal evaporation, or if your pool is losing water due to a potential leak. With more than 40 years of experience, we are capable of pinpointing even the most hidden of leaks using state-of-the-art tools and advanced, cutting-edge technology.

What Contributes to Loss of Pool Water?

While pools typically lose about a half centimeter of water every day, although various factors can speed up or slow down this evaporation rate.

Some factors that contribute to loss of pool water include:

  • High average temperatures
  • Excessive sun exposure
  • Lack of humidity
  • High wind intensity

Depending on your geographic location, you may experience any number of these factors. While these circumstances can contribute to water loss, the effect is usually minimal. If you notice that your pool seems to be losing more water than normal, or you find that you constantly need to refill your pool, you may have a leak. Implementing the bucket test is a simple way that you can check for leaks.
