    another leak posting

    vinyl liner pool, losing about 1/4 to 3/8" per 24 hrs.

    plugged the returns and skimmer, did the bucket test, still is losing water

    tried the food coloring at all returns, skimmer, steps and saw no place where the color was being sucked in. several of my return face plates are cracked but dont appear to drawing in the water.

    Pool pad is dry, except for when the heat pump runs ( condensation)

    Let me have it!

    Do you have a main drain?
    Does the pool stop draining when it reaches a certain level?

    Yes seems like you're losing water somehow.you really are the one who can only decided wether to get new liner or not. I would think you could find it if you look hard enough...check filter head control turn off filter spin it 360 to make sure it not hung up.is it possible you have a bad filter head and are losing water into to sewer return somehow? Not sure if you have a above or inground please post this info so we know what we are dealing with...
