19k gal inground pool. I definitely have a leak. Bucket test shows water lose due to the leak being at about 1 1/4 inches per day. Around the same time I noticed I was topping the pool off more often, I noticed air in my return jets. I've narrowed it down to the main drain suction line (when I close the valve coming from the main drain, the bubbles go away. I fear a dug up back yard and costly repair is in my near future. I'm assuming, but perhaps I shouldn't, that the problems are related? Any advice before I call my pool guy?
Thanks in advance,
