Hi all.....Looks like several have been dealing with leaks lately and I think you can add me to the list. I have suspected a leak for some time but nothing that I would consider major. Interestingly, we didn't add water at all over the winter (we do not close) but the last month or so I have been adding water about once a week. PB came out two summers ago and pushed some putty into the light niche by leaning over the edge and reaching...never got in....and problem never totally went away. I am hoping that maybe he didn't do a great job although not sure why we never added water over the winter. Question: While the water temp is still in the 50's and nothing is growing, should I just let the level drop until it stops? At about 3" per week, it could take some time to drain down to the niche. I suppose I could still circulate by using only the main drain and pool sweep. It will be a while before it will be warm enough for me to get in and do a dye test of any kind. BTW....plans for our pool says surface area is 771 sf which means I am losing roughly 1200 gallons per week. Thoughts?
Thanks in advance.
