Just discovered last night, while prepping the area around the sidewalk for pavers, that we have a leak. The ground was very "squishy" (for lack of better word) in one area. So, we started to dig and the ground was very wet. Our ground has a lot of clay in it, which makes it difficult for the water to drain. But, we went down about 26" and there was not visible laying water. We decided to see in the morning if there was water in the hold, we would have our answer. Sure enough, there is about 2"-3" of water in the hole at 6am this morning.
When we dug last night, our filter and pump was already off for the evening. The timer comes on at 3am and off at 8am and again in the pm. After some reading this morning, I read that if you see air in the top of the pump then it could be on the intake side??? Please help. I've already left a message at the pool company, but just feel like I will get every excuse why it isn't their problem. My husband is going to try and dig deeper and see if there is a visible anwer to the problem.
