Hi Everyone, first i wanted to thank this site and forum for helping me understand my new (to me) pool. I've learned a lot and now inwardly cringe when neighbours talk about brining their sample into the local pool store, and how may chlorine pucks and algaecide they are using.
I've also now discovered that the fun never stops! After cleaning up an old Jandy Lite2 heater and getting that going this weekend, i now have probable reason to believe i have a leak.
After this weekend (I ran the heater all day on Sunday, but it's been off since) I've started loosing water. I only mention the heater since that's the last thing the 'changed'. In the past few weeks, i've had to top water up a little once a week or two, but now overnight i lost over an inch. I marked the level with a pencil to be sure. I ran the bucket test (another great idea from this site) during the same time, and it did not loose anywhere near that amount. There is no obvious leaking around the equipment, i guess that would be too easy....
Just now i've turned off the pump and plugged the returns and the skimmer to try to narrow down where the leak is, liner vs plumbing. I'll check after work to see if the water level moves.
I'm not sure if anyone has any advise right now, this is more of a vent/shared story. Maybe someone can learn from what I'm about to go through... Ill keep you posted!
Thanks for the read.
