HELP-do I have a leak or is it just evaporation?
It will be 2 weeks on Wednesday since I got water in my pool. The water was brought in by tanker and I know I have 50K gallons. I have been filling the pool with the garden hose for aprox. 3 hrs a day since the day after the water was put in. As of Friday (10 days after initial fill) the water was at the bottom of the tile line. They shut off the skimmers for a few hrs. until the tanker could get here with 4K gallons of water. The tanker filled it to almost the top of the tile line. I keep my water at 87 and the nights have been cooler (50's and 60's). I have seen steam coming off the water at night and in the morning. I have 2 spillovers from my spa that are aways running unless the spa is on and I have 2 bubblers in the sun shelf that are on occasionally. I did have a leak in my slide pipe but that was fixed on Friday before the extra 4K gallons were put in. We did have people over and there was a lot of diving which = water loss. As of right now the water level is about 2" or less from the bottom of the tile line and I know it is supposed to be at least 3". The pool does sit in direct sunlight all day. They are shutting everything off tonight and doing a static bucket test. Do you think it is a leak somewhere or just evaporation? I am so scared that there is a leak under the concrete? How would they find the leak if there is one? I am so ready to cry. This has been the never ending project and I fear that if there is a leak I will never see the end. Thanks....Megan
