My pool has been leaking (I thought it was evaporation) at a rate of about 5/8 inch per day. Our city put in water restrictions so no more pool filling. Other people I know did not have such a drop off, so I figured I must be leaking, not just evaporating.
So I had to just let it go..I measured every day the dropping level of the water from the deck level and found it to be about 5/8 inch per day until today, when it was just 1/8 lower...aha.
It has not rained, so it seems that this is the approximate level of the leakage, which happens to also be where the level where both the return jets are, and also the vacuum inlet. The pool is a vinyl liner in ground type.
I would guess there is some sort of gasket to seal the outlets/inlets from the liner? I can easily reach them from the deck of the pool, so I hope it is just a case of remove and replace, and then buy some water and be back in business.
My other thought is that there is leak somewhere within the piping at this level.
Any advice on what to look for, and would the pool store carry such a gasket or seal or whatever part it is?
