Hey everyone - I am in Dallas, Texas, and new pool owner.
We are noticing that our pool is dropping water (about 2 inches in 5-6 days) - sound like a leak? I tried a bucket test, and after 24 hours, I couldn't tell much difference in bucket versus pool water. But after a few days it was definitely off.
We end up with a sucking sound in our skimmer alerting us loudly that we're getting air in the system and have to refill the pool immediately and flush out the air.
How often should I really expect to fill up my pool, and do we have a leak at this rate? It has rained in the past week also.
Meanwhile, I will try to keep pool up so that we're not getting air in the system........But really would prefer to not have to refill the pool with a hose 6 times a month. How often do those of you without an autofiller have to fill it up?
Thanks in advance.
