We replaced the liner this year and it seemed to be pretty good most of the summer. We have not been in the pool in about 3 weeks due to vacations, school, etc and I noticed the water was getting low, a bit lower than normal with evaporation. The first thing I checked was the skimmer by taking the faceplate off and checking the gasket, only to realize I may have put the gasket on wrong instead of in-between the liner and the wall of the pool. I also noticed the faceplate screws were not tight, so I assumed it was not getting a good seal. I stuck my hand down in-between the liner and the wall to find it soaking wet and rusted somewhat. I thought (for sure) the leak was right there. We put it back together correctly and tightened the screws up pretty good, filled the water back up to normal operating level and noticed the lowest end of the pool was wet on the ground, we dug a small trench and watched the water continue to trickle out. I did the food coloring test around the skimmer faceplate but was not sure what I am looking for? The dye seems to dissipate except for around the faceplate and it just kind of hangs around. What should I be looking for?
