Leak Detection & Repair Services

Finding a leak in a pond, waterfall or fountain can be a daunting task for someone without a great deal of experience. Being professionals in the business of leak detection, pond repairs and renovations in Wheeling-Chicagoland, Illinois|IL & surrounding areas, means.... we know how to fix your pond leak. We use a consistent troubleshooting methodology to narrow down the source of your leak as quickly as possible. We start with the most likely suspects, such as leaky plumbing connections, skimmer and filter leaks, and improperly formed waterfalls.

If the leak is not found in these areas, and we've ruled everything else out – you've got a hole in your liner. Rather than wasting your valuable time and money searching for the proverbial needle in a haystack, we will replace the liner. Years of experience has shown that replacing the liner is less expensive and time consuming than trying to find a hole – which can take days or weeks. A liner replacement is a relatively simple operation that can usually be accomplished in a single day, depending on how your pond is built.

First Step Is To Diagnose Your Liner Issues

The liner in your pond is designed to be flexible, it flexes to cover the hole dug for the pond shape. Once the weight of the rocks, gravel and water settles in, it needs to flex to allow for settling dirt with all that weight. If the liner is stretched to tight during installation, it could cause tears shortly after installation. It may take some time for the liner to fail, it may never fail, but rest assured if it does, one of our technicians should be able to diagnose, fix, or replace it.
