A customer I gave service to, asked me to write for him how do I use the bucket test results.
So for this customer from Corona California and all of you that want to know.

The results of your test can point you to the section of the pool in doubt.

After you have the readings of the 2 tests: 1. Pump on. 2. Pump off
(Always perform both tests to get the full picture. )

If the water lose in both test is the same suspect leak in the pool structure.

Higher lose when pump is on - suspect Plumbing, pressure side

Higher lose when pump is off- Suspect Plumbing, suction side
