Good morning all,
Just opened our AG pool 15 days ago. There was a slight drip at the bottom of the skimmer along the outer wall. It more or less stops leaking when the pump is off. When the pump is running, by days end there is a little standing water around the base of the pool right under the skimmer. This must be fixed.
We have a Hayward wide mouth skimmer and we used a butterfly gasket for the install.
My husband does not want to drain the water below the skimmer to replace a gasket right now if we can help it. When we drain below the skimmer to close the pool we can certainly get new gaskets at that point.
For right now is there some sort of marine grade sealant we could use to stem the tide from the outside? Would that just push water between the wall and the liner?
I don't want to rust out the pool by waiting but we have to stop the leak and we don't want to drain any water.
Appreciate your advice! Thanks much in advance! Kristi
