I should really have titled this....hubby talked to the pool store, so now I have to retrain him.
I sent hubby to pick up some CYA and he felt it would be a good idea to ask the "pool store" guy about water behind our liner.
We have had this issue off and on for years, whenever we have an abundance of rain. The previous owner built the pool on the lowest possible area and it is in direct line with run off from all around it.
It only ever happens after heavy rain fall or snow melt and is easily fixed by pumping behind the liner. I have done the bucket test a number of times just to be sure it is not a leak and that has turned out fine.
Anyway, the pool store guy told him the only way there can be water behind the liner is if there is a leak so he is worried now that that is the problem, despite my tests and that it only ever happens when it rains hard.
So, am I doing the right thing in reassuring him that this is a high water table issue? Also I hear people talk about dry wells in the pool area, can someone explain that to me. I've often thought if there was a way to drop a sump pump or something and pump off the water when the water table gets high, that this might help.
