Hello all! Our pool is losing a lot more water than it should be through normal evaporation. A bucket test confirms this. I've isolated it down to my overflow spa with the primary suspicion being the water jets.
- When I set directional valve to not put water into the spa (just thru the regular pool jets) no water seems to be lost in main pool.
- When not adding water to spa, the water level seems to settle at the spa jets.
- What's strange is that the water doesn't settle to any of the jet nozzles. It seems to be settling just above all the jet fixtures.
- Also the spa water appears to be settling to the water level of the pool (although I'm not 100% certain since its hard to gauge with the waterfall rocks in the way). Someone thought that perhaps the water was just settling back into the pool. Seems like a good theory except if this were true then I shouldn't be losing water overall!
I've attached some pictures. Please help! Would love some advice... Water bills are starting to get expensive. Thanks!!!
