    Possible Pool leak help

    Hi, I might be a little paranoid about pool water loss. Have done a couple of bucket tests recently. What I noticed is at night when pump is off, the pool water drop slightly more than the bucket in the scale of 1/16-1/8 in in the pool vs 1/32-1/16 in in the bucket. Day time with pump on seems to be fine.

    Talked to PB, he was laughing. Basically he said no way he can identify any small leak like this if there is one. I am in Massachusetts, and the day and night temp difference is currently at 20F. Any thoughts? Certainly I don't want to spend a few hundred bucks to hire a PB for nothing.

    Sorry new owner. Really zero experience with pool.

    Thanks.

    Agree 100%. That is not a leak.

    If anyone in New England area, could you share your water loss for the past week or so? I am losing 1/4" in two days.
