First time posting in this community so any help would be appreciated. I recently bought a house and inherited the very nice in ground pool along with it. I was able to open the pool fine and getting everything up and running. After about 24-36 hours of running the pump I noticed the water level had decreased a bit and there was a soggy spot of ground in the yard which had started to bubble up. As I dug down it became clear that there was a leak. In this area there are a small nest of pipe, a total 5 pipes that I could see. You can see the small crack in the second picture below, it is in the lower black pvc pipe almost in the middle of the picture. The pipes are buried about 24-30 inches below ground and of course the leak is in the middle section of pipe. It is about another 10 feet to where the pipes run up and connect to the filter system. What would be the best way to stop and fix this leak? I really don't want to have to dig up ground all the way back to the filter system. Any ideas??
I have a video of the leak as well if anyone needs to take a look at that.
