I have developed a leak and I am thinking it is in the shallow end around the steps. I have lowered the water below all of the outlets and the leak continues leaking about an 1 1/2" a day. I have a sump pump at the shallow end of the pool that is keeping up with the leak. I have allowed the water to get about 2 inches below the return eyes which leave about two feet of water in the shallow end. I have used water coloring and checked all of the screws around the steps that hold up the liner and tightened a couple but that did not affect the leak.
I would like to lower the water below the steps so I can take the strips from around the steps but I am concerned about the liner falling if I allow the water to get to low. Does anyone know if lowering the water to the floor level in the shallow end can cause the liner to fall?
