Pool losing water approx. 1/2" a day

Larry came out on the day and time we agreed on. He tested everything to do with a pool that could cause a leak. Only found one leak on the stairs that was repaired many years ago. Larry did another repair on the stair and tested to make sure that the leak was stopped. Larry was friendly and told me what he was doing as he conducted the different tests. Very satisfied with his work and professionalism.

Pool leak detection and repair

Larry and Pool Buoy Corp. was recommended to me by Leader Pools and I am very grateful they passed his information over to me. Larry showed up when he said he would, detected the leaks and repaired them to our satisfaction. We would definitely use his services again and recommend him to family and friends. Thanks again Larry!!

Leak Detection & Repair

I would 100% recommend Larry and this company. He was very knowledgeable, extremely professional and he was a great guy!

Larry clearly explained what I should initially do to try and track down whether I did indeed have a leak, or whether it was just evaporation, to save me having to pay for him to come out if it wasn't actually a leak.

After determining that I did likely have a leak, Larry quickly arranged an appointment and made sure to follow-up on the day to give me a more accurate time. Despite poor weather, Larry still came out and worked round it to find my leaks (yes, several of them!) and he then promptly repaired them that same day.

Everything has been great since, and it has been a nice saving on the water bill :-)

Thanks Larry - it was great to work with you!

Leak detection and repair of an air leak

What can I say, Larry returned our call quickly, showed up the next day and found the leak quickly with what looked like fairly specialized listening equipment. Within a week, he was back, lifted a very limited area of our patio (maybe 4 stones), fixed the leak securely (it was almost exactly where he said it was) and replaced the patio stones almost perfectly.

I will also add that I really like a contractor that communicates. He kept us posted on when he was going to be here to fix our pool, came when he said and let us know that because of some rain on repair day, he would be a little late (45 minutes, can't really complain).

Thanks Larry, you did a great job!!!

Losing Pool Water

I called Larry regarding water loss in our pool after reading all the reviews. Larry was fantastic to deal with!!! He was professional, punctual, honest and thorough!!
I highly recommend Larry at Pool Buoy to anyone having any issues. He arrived when he said he would and had my problem resolved within a few hours. For the first time this year when it rained I had to drain water out of my pool instead of constantly topping it up due to some tears in my liner, which were repaired.
You will not be disappointed....we couldn't be happier!!

Thank you again Larry!!

Fixed Pool Leak

I called Larry about a potential pool leak in my liner as I was losing water quickly. He came out on the weekend so I didn't have to take a day off. He checked all the pool lines as well as the liner and quickly fixed 3 small liner leaks. I would recommend Larry as he knows his stuff and his price was good compared to others.

Pool Leak Followup

This past September Larry from Pool Buoy discovered a minor leak on one of my return lines. Since it was closing season he suggested he come back in the Spring to finish the job. True to his word Larry was able to accommodate me and fit me into his busy schedule by showing up this past Sunday. Job was time consuming and physical exhaustive but was completed to my complete satisfaction. Larry is a true professional, honest, and delivers on his promises. Would not hesitate to use his services again. Highly recommended!
