    When to fix skimmer leak (AGP)

    Everyone has great suggestions and thats what I was going to do, but at the end of the season! I'm hoping to get an idea of epoxy or sealant for the inside under the face plate just as a temporary fix for the next few months to prevent the water loss

    When to fix skimmer leak (AGP)

    Any other opinions? Has anyone had any luck with a sealant on the inside of the pool at the skimmer plate? Like a marine epoxy

    When to fix skimmer leak (AGP)

    I had a feeling..... according to the old home owners, the pool was originally purchased in 2006 and liner was replaced in 2015

    Sorry, it's not a great picture but it's hard because it's under the deck! You can see the drippy marks though

    Good call! It's hard when you're a perfectionist!! I had my fiance vacuum the pool and he said it would be easier if he just got in to do it... and I said ok fine 🤣 then when he was done, I jumped in too!

    Update: around 4 I added 2 lbs of borax to raise pH to 7.6.... just tested now FC 7.5 ppm PH 7.8 TA 110 Sad. I know they are still in range but still! I assume my 8000 gal estimate is off? I added the amount of LC pool math said to do and it was perfect! Should I continue my calculations...
