Today Swim Care Pool Services tested, the pool, spa and auto fill valve water networks on one of our great customers in La Jolla,ca. The return side and suction side for both the pool and spa held at 5-7 PSI for 10-15 minutes. Swim Care Pool Services tested the pools main drains with our electronic listening device and heard no indications of main drain leaks. The pools dedicated auto cleaner line was pressure tested and held a consistent 5-7 PSI over 10-15 minutes. Swim Care Pool Services also tested water rise and loss using a leak analytics device, old technology refers to this as a bucket test that takes 24-48 hours to perform. Swim Care Pool Services also dye tested in several areas around the skimmer boxes and the pool and spa light fixtures, we heard no indications of water leaving the pools return network while performing this test. Swim Care Pool Services of San Diego cut out a faulty ball valve over at the equipment pad for the auto fills main water feed line. The current one was faulty and the water was not shutting off as a result. Upon further observation on the pools auto fill, we found that the auto fill was cockeyed and not vertical as it should be. It could have moved in the past do to faulty construction of the original builder. The auto fill box per technical instructions are supposed to be filled with sand around housing so they do not shift or move without natural weather condition causes, earth movement, etc. The pool auto fills 1” inch drain pipe was also clogged resulting in the water returning to the pool through the 1.5” inch equalizer line. Filling the pool and exiting over the wall by the pools automatic pool cover. Until further notice, now that the auto fills ball valve is now working we have left the valve shut to save unused water until a repair is agreed on. Swim Care Pool Services recommends having the irrigation company test and look at all irrigation stations for any other possible leaks on the premises. We also recommend replacing or fixing the current auto cleaner, it is not working correctly.
