My husband and I kind of inherited this home last yr after we lost our home on April 27th, 2011 to the tornadoes. It was my sister old home and we now live here.
I have a problem that is cause me an issue.. I use the bbb method and did yrs ago when I owned a pool before...(although my sister and her hubby disagree with EVERYTHING...they have been pool schooled) Anyway, when I run the hayward sand filter, one cycle, on filter...I am losing 1 and 1/2 inches to 2 inches a day. It is a 30,000 vinyl lined IG pool. I checked at the pump, no water lost or no water visible. it is a new liner, only 2 yrs old, do I don't think it is there. But I checked the back wash area that is 15 to 20 ft away from the house and it looks like a swamp there, remember filter is on FILTER not backwash. So my brother in law calls and tells me that the O ring is not needed, he order a plastic piece in its place that last 10 yrs...not such what this is... and that he ran the filter on recirculate ALL the time so he didn't lose water. When I questioned him on how he CLEANED the pool if he NEVER filtered it, he said that is what I did. I have backwashed and backwashed, rinsed and rinsed, and still not getting anywhere. I am still losing 2 inches a day of water. I did move it over to recirculate today to see if the water lose is the same...not sure yet.
Any ideas? I don't have alot of money to spend right now.
