    Water under liner?

    Hi Guys..

    A few weeks ago while manually vacuuming I would get to a certain area in the shallow end and the vacuum head would get stuck to the liner. It has happened every time I manually vac. I was in the pool yesterday and walked over the area and noticed it had a mushy feel as if water is under the liner in that area. My liner is old, showing signs of wear and I have a small leak somewhere. I have to add an inch or two of water every other day. Is this for immediate concern? Could my liner float?

    It all depends on the water table, soil drainage and rainfall. The more water the greater the risk. I've seen reports from members that a diver can find and patch a leak like that a few hundred dollars. Or since you have a suspicious area get a dive belt and some red dye or PH test and check that area.

    Don't have a water level issue. Live on a hill with AL red clay. I've done the dye test before around the light, skimmer etc without results but haven't tried it in that area. I'll definitely do it in that area.
