When I took the Safety Cover off my pool yesterday, I found that the water had leaked down to only about 3 to 4 feet of water remaining in the deep end. This told me that the leak
must be in the main drain.
Does anyone have any idea how this can be fixed without completely bustin up the bottom of the pool and replumbing it? I noticed that a magazine that I got from In The Swim has a
product in it that says it will stop leaks up to 1/8 inch even in plumbing. Has anyone had any experience with this or any other product.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
I have a pool man coming Monday. He told me to refill the pool completely and he would use diving gear to enter the pool and inject dye to find the leak. I do not think that this is
necessary because the water is already down past the walls and I know that the water will stop leaking out once it has settled level with the leaking point. He should be able to
inject the dye in the water that is left and find the leak without refilling it completely. If I refill it completely and the leak is in fact in the main drain then the water will have to be
pumped back out which would waste approx. 30,000 gallons of water.
Am I correct in assuming this?
