I have a problem that I could use some guidance with...
My abg pool liner has a leak that I just cannot find. I know it's the liner because the water hasn't been at skimmer level for about a week, and I'm still losing water. I am losing about 1/4 - 1/2 inch of water per day, more when it's really sunny (evaporation I assume). I got in with goggles and dive gear and checked every single seam, every spot, basically everything I could think of and found nothing. I checked the walls and even pulled the steps to look under them. Nothing.
Next I tried using the food coloring trick (it's supposed to get sucked down the hole in the liner, allowing you to see where the problem lies). Nada.
I'm financially crunched right now, and there's no way I can afford to have someone come out and use the sonar thingy (real technical term I know! lol). In the meantime, I've noticed that the cove has all but disappeared around the bottom, and there are huge dips in the bottom where I guess feet have pushed into the sand.
I'm thinking it's time to get a new liner and maybe put down some gorilla padding and the foam cove. I won't be able to do that until spring, so how to I support the pool walls in the meantime??? I can't keep putting water in the pool if it's just going to leak back out...and I can't patch a hole that I can't find.
Any ideas or suggestions are welcome.
