Just came across this forum and it looks like it could be a huge help for me down the line. I've never owned a pool before but the house we just moved into has a 25,000 gallon 18x36 pool. It needed a new liner as it was neglected for years which we had done this year but now that everything is up and running there is a constant stream of air in the return jets. It seems like the water coming out of the returns almost pulses in a steady stream with air but you can feel water is constantly being pushed if you are in the pool and leave your hand in front of it. The pool company that did the liner said that it was probably a problem below one of the skimmers as it basically not pulling a vacuum into it. They said the cause of this was the previous owner using the skimmers to place the chlorine tablets so we had a chlorinator installed. The company said that the concrete slab around the skimmer will need to be dug out to get to the skimmer to do the repair. Do you guys think this is the case or are they just trying to get money out of me? I've noticed that the top of the D.E. filter leaks a very very trace amount of water so I was wondering if that could be an issue. Right now I'm having a hard time even vacuuming because the amount of suction is minimal even out of the working skimmer. Any additional information that you need or pictures can be provided and thank you in advance!
