Pond Leak Detection

Ponds can leak from a low liner edge which you can fix yourself by shoring it up with soil. Otherwise, it may be harder to mend. If it’s any of these other places, you may need a pond expert to fix it:

  • Streams
  • Waterfalls
  • Underground Plumbing
  • Filters

Causes for Pond Leak Repair

You might want to learn why your pond is leaking for yourself. It could be something such as taking down a dam the kids built. Here are a few ways pond leaks happen that you can prevent:

  • Not turning off the automatic fill valve to ensure the system works without it
  • Pushing stakes for irrigation or lighting through the liner
  • Letting plants grow without trimming or repotting

Don’t Let A Pond Leak Drain Your Wallet Too

But it could be something more serious. If your water bill is higher than normal, check your pond for a leak because early leak detection can save you a lot of money on water.
