    Losing water

    I have an above ground pool and I'm losing 2-3 inches of water a day . Looked for a leak in the Liner with goggles and food coloring checking any spot that looked as if it could have been a leak . No luck finding one though. Any suggestions . Does this find a leak fix a leak product I've seen work on a liner hole ?

    Any wet spots around the base or equipment of the pool?

    If you didn't refill the pool as it drops its level down, eventually it should stop at the level of any hole/rip on the sides.....sometimes that makes it easier to find.

    No, you wouldn't want it to go *that far*....interrupt the loss before it got that bad. But sometimes just watching a day or so guides you to where to look if the water were to *stop* lowering.
