I have felt like I am going crazy. I have been searching out leaks because I didn't think it was possible for me to loose so much water to evaporation... I finally did a bucket test and the bucket and pool stayed even.
I have an automatic water valve that I have set to add water for 10 min a day. I put 5 gallons measured into a 5 gal bucket and then timed how long it took to fill to the line... I get 5 gallons in 40 seconds. This is about 7.5 gal per min. My timer runs for 10 min so that is 75 gallons a day and it cant keep up, not even close! I lost 2 inches of water since last Tuesday despite water being added each night automatically.
this is 3000+ gallons per month, probably 20-30 dollars in water!!! insane!!!
on the plus side, my pool has stayed in the mid 80s temp wise despite 100+ degree days with 0 shade on the pool...
I get a lot of wind blowing across the pool so I am sure that is causing a lot of extra evap.
Does anyone else loose so much water?
