I have an old Buster Crab Vinyl Pool with an Aqua Genie Skimmer. About two weeks ago it developed a very slow leak. During a two day period the water level drops about two inches to the bottom of the skimmer inlet and then the leak stops. The skimmer 'box' holds water, but the area where the water flows from the pool into the box is basically dry. I have tried dye and looked all around the skimmer for cracks, but nothing. I think the leak must be in the flapper hinge area, which I can't see. Is there some sort of sealant that I can isolate in the skimmer 'box' that might seal the leak? Any suggestions?
One more problem now. The leaking water seems to have gotten between my liner and the liner wall. I've been pumping it out, but there are several 'bubbles' that haven't disappered.
OK one more problem. I've been waiting two weeks for the a leak detection firm to come out and still have 4 days to go. The water is green. Can it be saved or has it 'spoiled'?
