Split from tip-for-finding-a-vinyl-liner-leak-t69420.html Butterfly
New member - often browsed these forums for help with my pool. I haven't updated my profile / signature yet - pool info below.
My leak fits the symptoms in this post. I have a leak and suspected it to be around the lights (I have had one there before), skimmer, or return lines. I cannot find leak using food coloring test. However, I do have a slight "ballooned out" liner on one side of the pool. I cannot see any tears around this area. Is it possible there is a leak nearby - perhaps along the floor - that causes it to balloon out on the side?
30,000 gallon "L" shaped in-ground pool. Vermiculite with vinyl liner. Salt system, sand filter, hayward 1.0 pump.
Thanks for any advice.
P.S. I found my first leak around my light using a hydrophone. May have to find that and try that again.
