I'm hoping to get some help finding a leak in my pool ...
After opening the pool and having it acid washed for the first time in the seven years that we have the pool, I now have the first leak in my inground plaster pool. I had a suspicion it might be losing water on Friday so I did a dye test on all openings in the pool, light fixtures etc - not the main drains though as the water is frigid still here in NJ. Did not see any water movement at all.
To be safe I ran it on main drain only over the weekend. When we returned last night the water level was down three inches from where it was when we left - exactly just below the skimmer inlets. We continued running the pump overnight on main drain and the water level remained stable, just below the skimmer boxes.
This seems to tell me that the issue is in the skimmer boxes somewhere. Did the food dye test again and could not detect any water movement in the skimmer - I would have expected some movement if we loose three inches in < 48 hours.
If someone has tips what else to check and how it would be greatly appreciated!
