    Leak in our less then 5 yr old pool

    We have an inground pool and spa that are connected. The spa is higher than the pool. Last night we turned on the spa (have not done so in about a month). When we came out, there was water running from the spa (raised) down the sucrete. We looked and could see water coming out of a small hole in between where the spa meets the surcrete/meets the flagstone that surrounds our pool. We have never seen this before but upon more inspection, the water must have been pooling around our spa a little bit because there is some green algea in some areas in the small crack where the spa meets the surcrete. Does that make sense?

    Our pool is less then 5 yrs old. We had a 3 yr warranty on equipment but not sure if this will be covered. Any ideas. Is this considered a "shell" issue? I have an email through to our pool co. but it will prob. be awhile before he contacts us. This is our first pool and we are sorta at a loss of what needs to be done. Any and all input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    24,000 IG with spa and 4 ton waterfall. Equipment: Pentair 520 Clean & Clear, Pentair VS+SVRS Intelliflo, Pentair Whisperflo 2 HP, Polairis Cleaner, Intellibrites, Pentair Rainbow 320 in-line Chlorinator, Pentair Easy touch 8 wireless and spa side remote.
