    Still losing water after...what now

    I’m still losing water. I have changed the skimmer. Changed the multiport handle. Replumbed leaky fittings in the pump house. Didn’t lose water for almost two weeks. Now I loose almost a 1/4” in one night. What could it possibly be now?

    Pool pump not starting

    I lost about 3/4 inch when I backwashed. I’m in the process of opening a pool that hadn’t been open in three years. Was in very bad shape. Had to replace the skimmer and pump motor.

    I back washed it this morning. So it’s normal to bring it down a half an inch or more??

    When I backwashed my pool it lowered the pool water level. Is that normal??

    Losing suction while vacuuming

    I found a crack in my skimmer box around the suction line. My pool will not hold water above the skimmer. Is it safe to say that’s my air and water leak?

    Crack inside the skimmer

    I found a crack inside the skimmer. Would this crack leak water from my pool? My pool water will not hold water till it goes below the skimmer
