Been noticing a wet area near the pool for a while. I've suspected a leak so I have been trying to isolate it over the past few days which didn't produce much so decided to start digging. This is what I found....the plastic you see is the backside of the skimmer and it appears water is coming between the plastic and concrete. I do not see any cracks or imperfections inside the skimmer so not sure exactly where is originating from or how to fix it.
It is a slow leak and does not change with the pump on or off. I even did a 24hr bucket test to see if my water loss was evaporation or a result of the leak which ended up being all evaporation. This leak isnt enough to produce a notable water loss just simply a little bit of dampness in the ground
