I would like to say hello. I'm a relatively new pool owner. I have a gunite saltwater pool that is around 20 year old. When we bought the house we had several small water leaks in the pool equipment, but all were fixed with new gaskets, or o rings.
My issue now is that in the last month I have started to have a leak on the suction side of my pump. It is not a water level issue, or a weir valve issue. I have narrowed it down to the skimmer line because if I shut off the main drain line via the jandy valve at the pump, the leak goes away.
Does anyone have any other obvious things to look for? I can't see any cracks in the skimmer. I guess my next step is to have a pool guy come leak test the line?
