Hey guys, I'm new to pools I had my pool for almost a year I have been maintenance it on my own. But now I'm losing about an inch of water a day until it hits about an inch below the tile mark and the water stays at about that area. I have tried searching for the leak a few times using the dye test with no success, I watched a bunch of YouTube videos and still haven't found a solution. Today I came across an idea to plug one of the skimmers which can be the problem area from what I have been told by a neighbor. My idea would be to fill up the pool; plug the possible problem skimmer and turn the skimmers on and see if the problem persists I got a 1 1/2 inch plug from Home Depot , I have two skimmers. My question is would this be a bad idea? Is it safe to have a plugin the skimmer while having the skimmers on? My goal is to try to isolate the problem.
Any advice is appreciated.
