Leaking Conduit?

Hi All!


Came across this yesterday.

The spa was leaking into the control panel, and into a conduit that ran underground to the 60 AMP 240 Volt disconnect about 10 feet away.

The owner claims it works fine! It just leaks.

I showed him the problem and advised I would NOT test the spa and requested he keep all power to the spa disconnected until a licensed electrician approves installation.

I am curious. Does anyone check for leaks in a pool or spa and if so what method do you use?.


I don't mean the pool equipment. I mean the pool itself.

Sure do Todd,


I tell my clients if they want me to check to see if there is a leak I will.Or they may and probably should do it themselves.


I use the bucket method.

I don't test for leaks as part of my pool inspection.

I see that no one does check for leaks.(apparently)


So what do you do? Look in the pool for cracks and call it a possible leak?


If said crack is found do you defer it for a dye test?

I look for cracks, call them cracks, and recommend further evaluation, which may or may not include a dye test, bucket test, or whatever.

Of course, we also have vinyl pools and pebbletec pools. Those make it difficult to see cracks. What then?

I do the same thing a crack is a crack further evaluation needed.


If it is pebble tech you would be lucky to find a crack if you checked out the whole pool with a mask.
