I am new to owning a pool and I think mine may be leaking under ground some where. sad.gif
The water level of my pool will drop 1" every night when the filter runs. If I do not run the filter the water level doesn't drop at all. The pool is over 25 years old and was re-plastered 12-16 years ago according to the previous owners.
I have pool covers on the pool and I haven't seen much in the way of evaporation, but if I am losing an inch of water per night then it's got to be leaking somewhere, right?
I do not see any wet soil, or leaks from any of the pipes that are above ground.
Is there a way to seal the pipes that are under ground? Will this require me to tear up the brick/concrete to fix?
I've shut my filter off for the past 4 days and the water level has remained constant.
any ideas/help on how to proceed or fix this would be appreciated! Thank you.
I would like to add that I pull water from the pool, circulate it to the spa, then it waterfalls back into the pool. I do notice that when the filter s running I'll get some air bubbles coming out of the return in the spa. Happens every 15-30 minutes..sometimes longer, sometimes quicker.
Additionally I don't have a skimmer, but a creepy crawley with a hose that connects directly to a pipe in the skimmer hole thing.
