Our new 18' round AG pool was installed on Monday, and last night while in the yard, I noticed a damp area of dirt underneath the return hose, against the pool. We just finished filling it yesterday, and are waiting for the electrical to be completed still, so the pump and filter haven't been turned on yet.
I initially panicked, then read something online about condensation and/or moisture from the base sand sometimes causing damp earth next to the pool... but I was wondering if it would be possible for it to be in just one spot if that were the case? One site said the condensation from the inner walls would run along the bottom track to the lowest point and exit there. I checked the water level this morning and it looked the same as last night, but of course there was no sun overnight . I'm in Va Beach, and yesterday was a lot warmer than the previous days.
