Wondering if anyone can give me any clue as to what to expect to see in or around the pool when it develops a leak.
Would water literally just leak into the surrounding soil, or is there some smart plumbing that is routinely installed with pools which prevents uncontrolled leaking into the surrounding soil and perhaps channels it into some kind of disposal water pipes and into the stormwater system??

the test sequence above is ok but is easier to place bucket on a step & fill to same level as pool . it is easier to see any difference in levels. is pool concrete , fibreglass or liner. if fibreglass it will have a stand pipe fitted at the deep end . see if there is any water at bottom of pipe. if there is test it for traces of chlorine if there is you have a leak. use food colour test around hydrostatic valve first then fittings & lights if nothing there check any areas around pool that look like a possible crack. cheers andrew
