    400 gallons per day loss

    Trying to identify leak, decline slowed below returns

    Trying to identify where a leak is most probably located...if possible Noticed pool level declining faster than normal about 6 weeks ago. Turned everything off and let water level fall on it's own. Rate of drop slowed considerably after it cleared returns. One caveat, and perhaps I should...

    Newly registered, trying to determine if I have a leak

    I've visited TFP many times and love the comments and suggestions on this site. I finally ran into an issue I'm trying to decipher without getting hit with an expensive "recommendation" that then turns into a very expensive hunting expedition. So, I'm reaching out to this knowledgeable...
