How to Detect Water Leaks with Blue Dye


Leaks can be an absolute nightmare for homeowners and business owners alike. Water damage starts small, but soon after, it is a massive problem that needs to be handled. If you neglect a leak, it can cause massive amounts of damage. This blog post will help you identify different water leaks, and will then explain why our blue dye is excellent for fixing the problem.

Where Blue Dye Tablets Can be Used


A crucial part of your building functioning is the plumbing system. If the pipes are broken or cracked, they can rack up the damage expenses. You are going to want to find them and isolate them right away. 

It doesn’t matter whether the plumbing is commercial or residential. Our dye is safe and usable in both areas. You can even use it in your own home. Just drop it into the water, and find where the dye is leaking.


Our blueing dyes can be used in pools as well. Often if a pool develops cracks or leaks, it can be pretty tricky to find the hole; however, using our water tracing dye tablets, you can locate the source of the problem. 

Here are some steps to follow if you suspect a leak in the pool. First off, identify where you believe the crack or hole is located. Finding where it is might take some time, but if you have a general idea of where you are losing water from it will be much easier to pinpoint the crack. 

Second, you are going to want to drop some blue dye near the suspected area. It’s important to note that you want to do this with the pool pump turned off. You are also going to want to make sure the water is completely still. After letting the water settle, put a blue dye tablet near the crack. 

If the blue dye is sucked into the area of speculation, then you have a crack on your hands. The good news is that you located it, and now all you have to do is get it fixed.
