Greetings! Great site, I've learned a lot from reading here.
Anyway, I have a leak in my return plumbing. At least that is what's suspected at this point. This has been there since sometime last summer. The bucket test shows me losing about 1/2 inch per day. While I'm trying to locate someone to find the exact location of the leak, which we suspect is under concrete, and possibly someone to fix it, I got the idea to run some temporary plumbing to reduce my water and chemical bills.
What I did was T off the return line at the pad and run a line on the ground over to the pool, down into the pool at the height of the return lines, and put a female adapter on it to accept the return nozzle. I can then shut off the old return line and turn on the new one.
I haven't turned it on yet, but what I'm wondering is if there will be an issue because the pool has two returns, but I'm only adding one. Will there be any kind of pressure issue? The return plumbing is only one pipe splitting to the two returns under the concrete someplace.
Sorry that I don't have any pictures, the camera's not with me.
Also if anyone has any advice about locating the leak, or a company in the Cinci/Dayton OH area that could handle this I sure would appreciate it. I've got calls out to a couple but haven't heard back from them.
Thanks in advance for any advice or ideas!
