    1/4~1/2 water loss in NY Albany

    Hi all, I read the post here and said 1/4~1/2 water loss each day will be normal, but when i talk to my pool store and they told me my pool may have leaking. They recommended me to hire the leak detection to check my pool. My question is anyone live in my area also losing same amount of water like me in these couple days? The reaosn i'm asking because the weather is cold and windy here. I don't know is this normal evaporation.

    Wind evaporates water almost as well as sun and heat can.

    Try the bucket test to make sure but it's probably just evaporation.

    The bucket test is the first thing to try. It's easy to do and it costs you nothing (except a bucket if you don't already have something).
