Pool Leak. I am new to owning a gunite pool. We noticed we are losing water faster than reg. evaporation. Adding every day. Local pool place said to do the die test to see if water is being drawn in a direction. This showed nothing. I was told it was likely the skimmer so to shut off valve from skimmer at pump and let the bottom drain draw. This did NOT draw water so I had to open up skimmer again or burn out my pump.
Not sure what to do at this point. Don't want to get ripped off by a pool person if this is something we can take care of ourself.
Why would the bottom drain not be drawing? We feel no suction at all when pump is running.
This is a salt pool and the previous owners put in all very expensive self chlorinators and digital systems. Feeling a little lost right now as to what to do next.
