    Current Project:
    Infinity basin water proofing:

    After being frustrated with last water bill I shutoff my auto fill to find the culprit.
    I shutoff the edge pump and began to watch water levels.
    With The main pool level staying where I expected over the next couple days I moved to the basin where I suspected the leak.
    Letting the leak settle to the level right where the auto fill pipe extends in basin for the auto fill. Faulty Caulking exist here as well.
    I drained and cleaned Infinity Edge basin. This basin is approx 32x4x4. or 3500 gal
    The edge basin is concrete only and really needs to be finished.
    I have ground and patched my first crack at the basin fill point. I have used drylock hydraulic cement to patch this.
    Then I went on to inspect the rest of basin. There is no wonder in my mind why I am loosing so much water.
    I have found 4 more cracks in front basin wall, pitting of concrete, and even a gap in the corner with membrane showing.

    I can mend the cracks and gaps with more hydraulic cement, but where I'm having a difficult time is choosing how/what product to use to complete this task? I will most likely do this myself but am open to any positve experiences or feeback.
    Thanks for reading.
