A method to test for a leak in a swimming pool. It involves placing a bucket on a step in a filled pool, and marking the water level both inside and outside the bucket. If after a period of time the water level on the outside has reduced more than the water level on the inside, there is probably a leak.

Things you need to know

Due to the varying environmental conditions during the tests, the results may be wrong.
