Good evening all,
I have been in this home for ~3 weeks now and have come to notice something odd with the pool.
Pool is 16x32 in ground.
shallow end 3', deep end 7.5'
Two return jets (right word for those?)
1 skimmer (pool company told me it is jacuzi)
1 lower drain
The strange issue! Randomly, my deep end return jet (closest to the pump) will turn from a return and generate a sucking sound and a vortex like you are draining the bath tub. This lasts about 10 seconds then returns to normal operation. I dug up the first 1' down at the jet to see it has a 90 degree elbow, not showing a leak there.
The second issue is the pool is losing water at about a little less then an 1inch a day. at 16x32' that is killing me with water bills.
Any ideas about the jet randomly turning into a vortex? Tips for leak detection without having to pay a pool company?
Thanks everyone for your thoughts and time.
