Leak Detection & Pond & Water Feature Repair Contractor Services
Our Pond & Water Feature Leak Detection Services
Finding a leak in a pond can be a daunting task for someone without a great deal of experience. We know how to fix a pond leak.
Chester Hollow Water Gardens In Chester New Hampshire services the Rockingham County, (NH) areas and uses a fairly 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. And especially around the edges of your pond.
Your safety concerns about loose rocks that have fallen in your pond may create holes when they land on the bottom, or dirt back-filled around low liner edges might have settled with time.
We Will Help You Try And Rule Out All Possibilities !
WATERFALL/STREAM Leaks Are Most Common
Having a leak in the waterfall or area of your stream/waterfalls is one of the most common leak spots for any water feature. Newly built waterfalls will settle over time, thus in some cases lowering liner edges allowing water to exit your pond at the waterfall. Depending on how your stream or waterfalls are built will depend on the cost to disassemble and rebuild them. In some cases, holes in your liner can be repaired quickly and relatively easily. But be aware — finding holes can be like looking for a needle in a haystack! Rocks, boulders, and gravel need to be moved or removed, cleaned, inspected, and returned back to their original spots. Sometimes it’s just plain expensive to inspect your pond leak inch by inch. Be prepared to consider having it rebuilt from the start of our meeting.
Holes In Your Liner Can Be Repaired If We Can Find Them!
" They May Be Cute, But A Poorly Built Pond
Is Heaven On Earth To A Chipmunk "
If the leak is not visibly found in the waterfall/stream areas, and we've ruled everything else out – odds are, you've got a hole in your liner. As we mentioned above, finding this hole is a gamble against time and money !
Contractors like us that consistently repair leaky water features (Especially Ponds) will tell you... that when they are shut down for the winter, the cute little chipmunks that bounce around your garden will eventually find their way in-between the now dry rocks in your waterfalls and streams.
The only way to find these holes is to narrow down the areas where you see them most. If you don't know, the only way to find it, is to start taking apart the pond or waterfalls to hopefully find the source of the leak, SO KEEP AN EYE ON THEM!
