I need help... fast. The drain line coming out of the side of the pool started leaking somewhere inside the white circle. I'm loosing water fast and can't stop it. I tried tightening the white thing down tighter and I tried epoxy putty. There's no shut off or any way to stop the water, and there's a cover over the drain on the other side so I can't even get a plug in there. It's leaking fast and I'll have no water left in the pool in not very long, my liner and cover will be ruined.
The main problem is I'm afraid the leak is where the pipe goes into the pool (I'm not sure how the seal between the pipe and pool itself works), so even if I could somehow plug the pipe, it's still going to leak. What's my options here? Is it time to call in professionals?
