    Losing water

    Hey guys. I've noticed I'm losing water during my slam which is most likely from opening filter housing to clean. Assuming this is not the issue, how much water is normal to lose from evaporation?

    A few variable there depending upon amount of sunlight, wind, surface area exposed, etc. In your pool I would hope this time of year no more than about a 1/4" or less - ballpark. That's the best I am at math on a Saturday morning.

    Thanks Texas. I will top off again after I finish slam and watch it. I went from mid skimmer down to about an inch into skimmer which seems excessive, but a lot comes out of that filter when I dump it.
