Hello,I'm new to this site and forum so please bear with me.
I have an 18x36 inground pool. Concrete block walls with vinyl liner.
This summer I had to do a complete renovation;new plumbing,coping,patio deck,and liner install. I had some issues with the pool company at various stages-mainly due to poor communication and what seemed to me slow work.
At any rate,they ran all new schedule 40 flex pipe for all 3 returns and my 2 skimmers (which were both replaced),and at the end they pressure tested the lines.
At this point,I back filled the plumbing,then the landscaper came in a week later and did a paver pool deck.
The pool company came back,dropped in the new liner,we filled the pool and viola!
The pool is leaking! A leak detection guy came out and found that all 3 returns are leaking. At this point the pool company has said I still owe them the remaining balance and its not their fault/responsibility.
I understand they pressure tested the lines prior to me backfilling and the landscapers work. I'm just looking for some support/solution from them before I finish paying them. I'm willing to take responsibility (as would the landscaper) for anything caused by us. However I don't think I'm being unreasonable to want to find and fix the leaks before I point fingers and before I pay them in full.
Any advice? And and any idea what could be causing the leaks (I know,where to begin...)
Thank you in advance for any help.
