Commercial Pool Pressure Tests


Expert Pool Work, Inc. is industry-trained, experienced, and well-equipped to pressure test the plumbing for commercial pools in Omaha and the surrounding areas. The plumbing for a commercial pool can be much more complex than the plumbing for a residential pool. We can pressure test the plumbing at your commercial pool.

We excel in the overall field of pool leak detection. As such, we will only recommend pressure testing only when the plumbing is at least a likely leak source. 

The cost to pressure test a commercial pool starts at $289.00 and could cost more depending on the number of pipes being tested, the diameter of the plumbing pipes, the way the pool is plumbed, and certain other variables that may be unique to your pool and its plumbing. However, we will provide a free onsite visit to discuss your pool leak as well as provide some initial leak analysis; during this initial visit, if a pressure test is needed, we will convey an actual cost for the pressure testing.

Have you ever called a pool company to report a pool leak and they immediately told you they need to pressure test your pool? Well, a pressure test is not for all pool leaks; a pressure test is merely used to prove or disprove that the pool plumbing is the (or perhaps just a) leak source, mainly due to a break/crack in a pipe or a bad connection fitting. A pressure test will be a monumental waste of your money if your pool leak is not in the plumbing.

A pressure test will determine if a plumbing pipe leaks or does not leak; it will not, however, determine where within the pipe the leak is located. But, a pressure test is a starting point to detect leaks in the underground plumbing. If a pressure test does confirm a plumbing leak (or multiple plumbing leaks), then follow-up listening tests would be performed. While it is not always 100% conclusive, a follow-up listening test will pinpoint the (at least proximal) location of the leak source within a pipe that was just proven by a pressure test to be a leak source. If the pressure test determines that a given pipe leaks, the cost for a follow-up listening test is $100.00 per hour. Again, before any of this is accepted, we will provide a free onsite visit to discuss your pool leak as well as provide some initial leak analysis; during this initial visit, if a pressure test is needed, we will convey an actual cost for the pressure testing at least a solid ballpark cost for any follow-up listening testing, if applicable. We try to - and so far we have always been able to - cap the follow-up listening test at $200.00 max, which gives us two hours to locate the leak source; the clear majority of the time, if a follow-up listening test is needed, we can usually complete this within an hour.
