    Leak in plumbing

    I have a leak behind the return jet on the side of my in-ground pool. This side of the gunite sticks about 3 feet above the ground. My pool sits on a slight incline. I am about a week into startup.

    I'm going to contact the builder Monday, but I'm curious how this will be solved as the plumbing is encased in gunite.

    Any ideas or has anyone else had this problem?

    That's a tough one. The repair depends on whether it's the plumbing is leaking or water seeping in behind the fitting migrating along the pipes and through the concrete.

    I'm losing about half an inch of water a day. Most of that is probably evaporation here in the heat of central Texas.
    It does not appear to be a huge leak.
