    Leaks?

    OK filling up the Intex and can't tell if we have a leak? Might sound crazy but I laid my padding down Friday evening along with a tarp to go over the insulation then constructed the pool yesterday. We had rain Friday night and early Saturday morning so I can't tell if the tarp is wet due to rain Or a leak?

    Thanks

    Re: Leaks?

    Thank you Woody I will try that once the pool is up but. If I have a leak it's on the floor so a question I have is there an easy way to see the leak on the bottom of the pool. Just don't know if I should Continue the filling process if I think there might be a leak but visually I don't see anything when looking in the pool. if there is a leak its just a trickle right now.

    Re: Leaks?

    What you are probably seeing is the result of the rain. But, there are lots of articles about using food coloring to find a leak. When I had an Intex pool, I used a product that you dump in the water and it seals leaks. It worked well but the holes were very small.

    Fix a Leak. Got it from Amazon and it works great on tiny pinhole leaks. Instructions may be followed precisely. I still have 3/4 of the bottle.
