Leaking Pool

4Jade2ReneeFebruary 10, 2011

My pool keeps losing water, and I can't seem to find where. It's not at the pump. How can I find the leak?

Usually the first thing to ask is how much are you losing? Is there any air in the returns? In the pump?

@PoolCenter, you can modify your profile to allow people to email you through GardenWeb.

Don't point people to your web site. I am offended by this. Feel free to message me. As a courtesy to others, lets keep what I have to say about that off line.

2Jade2Renee,
Use a 5 gallon plastic bucket to find out if you have a leak. Fill the bucket 3/4+ with water and set it on the top step. Mark the inside water level of the bucket, then mark the outside water level of the pool on the bucket. Check the difference in 24 hours. This is how much your pool leaks per day. 1/4" per day is considered normal in the industry.
The easiest way to actual locate the leak is to turn off the equipment and let the pool leak down until it stops. If it stops at the bottom of the tile then check the tile and grout looking closely inside the skimmer and skimmer throat. If the water stops at the light then look closely around the light niche and/or conduit coming into the light niche. Same for the return lines.
Once you isolate the level, it's a little easier to handle. With this info it's a little easier to call a pro for repair and get action too.

Racket,
It was a perfectly done Homer Simpson, but when it posted it messed it all up. So much for art.

I suspect jade was shilling for PoolCenter. Not his first time to the rodeo. If they do it again, I will report them. This site is paid for by advertising. I doubt GW is their cut.
