How can Pooled Energy sensors identify when my pool is leaking?

Pooled Energy can often detect when your pool has a leak by monitoring the history of your salinity readings.

Below is a trend of a pool’s salinity over 5 weeks. In a pool without a leak, the salinity would typically be unchanged over this period.

The rate of loss is really high and this big pool is losing 12,000 litres of water a week. That is a serious leak.

Pooled Energy can monitor factors such as this for you, using an emerging set of artificial intelligence tools that continue to improve.

If you suspect your pool may have a leak, a manual way to test for leaks is to fill a bucket with pool water and set it on the pool stairs.  Fill the bucket to the same level as the pool water around the bucket.  Water inside and outside the bucket will generally evaporate at the same rate.  After a few days, if the level outside the bucket falls relative to inside the bucket, you likely have a leak.
