Step 1: Fill an empty bucket with pool water to about an inch from the top.

Step 2: Place the bucket on the first or second step of the pool.

Step 3: Mark the water level inside the bucket with tape.

Step 4: Mark the water level on the outside of the bucket with tape.

Step 5: After 24 hours, compare the two levels. If the pool water on the outside of the bucket has gone down more than the inside, there is probably a leak.

Step 6: Call J&M Pool Company to schedule a pool leak detection.
