I am basically at my wit ends with my inground pool. I just can't seem to find out what all is causing the leaking in my pool. I posted a previous thread about my skimmer basket leaking, well I plugged the skimmer basket that I though was leaking and that did not help. My pool pump had air in it from the suction side as well so I thought that was it. I have always lost prime since my pool pump is to far up hill. So, I ended up having a pool company come out and replace the plumbing around my back flow valve. This fixed the air pocket and priming issue and now the pool will stay primed.
By the way my pool has fiberglass walls and a concrete bottom and was built in like 1980. It has been painted over with epoxy and the seams have started showing again. My next thought is I could see some of the seams in my fiberglass walls and could kind of see dirt in the cracks so my thought is it was leaking from these. I jb welded all the cracks but 2 of them so far because I ran out of jb weld. I would have thought this would have at least slowed the leak down.
Last night the water drained almost 1 inch out of the pool in just 1 night. I was just losing like 2 inches in a week which is still quite a bit.
How is it possible that If i plugged almost all the seams in my fiberglass and by the way I jb welded around all the seams in my skimmer basket as well that the leak is now worse than it was?
Does anyone else know what is going? Any help would be greatly appreciated. If I can't figure it out soon I guess I will have to call a leak company.
