    In process of balancing pool SLAM but noticed water below arrow leaking?

    Could it be leaking? I had it fixed 2x through the years. I lower my water yesterday just a little and refilled it. Backwash, rinsed a few times. I check near skimmer with leak detection but found nothing to be leaking. Water is still too cold to go under or even in the water. I ideas?

    My experience with patches is they need to be redone every couple of yrs to play it safe. They tend to get crud around the edges and eventually the patch fails. I check mine each summer and if they look bad pull and replace them. I don't want those to fail when the water is 45 degrees and I have my cover on.

    Try performing a bucket test. Put a rock or two in a 5 gal bucket, put it in the pool and fill it with water to the same level as the pool. Check it every 24 hours for a couple of days to see if the pool level drops faster.
