    Leak in the pool....

    Hey guys, I have a gunite pool that was inherited when we bought the house. Been in the house for about 2 years, now I'm having to fill the water about ever 2 days. Maybe 1/2 " drop in the water line every 2-3 days. I've done the bucket test and It's not evaporation. Seems like it leaks more...

    High pool pump pressure

    My pump pressure is running high lately even after hosing down the cartridge 3-4 times. It starts at 8 psi and in 20 minutes or so, goes up to 16 psi. I had a lot of algae in it last month as I was out of town for several weeks. I ended up shocking the pool and washing the cartridge, but still...

    Several issues, but most alarming is electric current in pool

    I think the backstory is important here because it might answer a few questions. Last year we had our vinyl liner replaced and had lights installed in our pool for the first time. Our house was a foreclosure and the lights were one of the items that disappeared before we bought. I had noticed...

    DE sands in pool

    Hi, Everyone, New to swimming pool and new to the forum too. I have a Pentair 60 DE filter with grids like fans. I had it recently dissembled and garden hose deep cleaned. I got it reassembled and refilled with DE from Lowes. The DE is weighed to the requirement from the Pentair manual. After...

    Quick Fix Suggestions Needed for Pipe Leak

    My hot tub was losing water quickly so I've let it drain to try to isolate where the leak might be. I am pretty confident that it is in the last 2 feet of piping that feeds the bubbler jets - so not an important pathway for filtration. The pipe is below ground and I really do not want to dig...

    Help! Leak detection in a fiberglass pool.

    I have a leak somewhere in my plumbing. Plugged returns and no water loss. Unplug returns and fill over returns and I’m not losing water. Unplug returns and run the pump I start losing water. Water loss stops just below returns and skimmer. Can anyone give me any additional insight. Any...

    Fast&Tite is Gushing!

    Hi All...I grew up as a pool builder's daughter so my hubby has decided I'm the one who handles everything related to our pool since my dad isn't alive anymore. My heat pump is acting up and every company in Maryland is so busy opening in ground pools right now no one will make service calls...

    Decking to tile to pebble...seap crack fix?

    Help with proper fix/product. Started with a suspected pool leak. Did't intend to pull tile off, but hollow sounds made me suspicious and the loose tile coincide with the sidewall cracks in pebbletec. Above each of those areas is an expansion gap in the decking. I'm no pro, but it seems to...

    Leaks!!!! Help

    Are you able to identify the parts with the yellow handles. If I turn the water off here but keep running the pump will this be bad? This is a brand new pool, they set the pump to run 24hrs a day while they cycle out the acid wash on the plaster. This morning I went out and water was...

    Hello! I’m a newbie! 🙂 We have an Intex Ultra Frame Salt Water Pool. I forget the dimensions, it’s big. 😉 This is the third summer we have owned it, last summer we noticed that the water level kept going down. I wasted about $300 by refilling it and trying to find the leak. I never did so we...

    Fixing a leaky outlet from a DE Filter

    Hi! The outlet pipe coming out of my DE filter (FNS Plus 60 sq. ft) has a slow leak where indicated in the photos. From the parts diagram it looks like the leak is coming from part numbers 28 or 29 where the pipe meets the filter. I'd like to detach the outlet pipe from the filter housing but...

    Broken Pipe / Freeze damage

    Slight leak at screw fitting on sand filter

    Hi Folks, Looking for some advice on a small leak. I replaced my filter last year, and am seeing a small leak (1 drip every few seconds) from the screw-in connections as shown in the picture. I used a reasonable amount of teflon tape, though it seems the screw-in fitting went all the way in...

    Beginning the Bucket Test

    Hi all, tonight I am beginning the bucket test. Last Weekend, I was out on the deck and heard the skimmer "gulping", I knew the pool was low-ish but didn't realize it was that low. Topped off the pool, to come to this past weekend and the pool is at that almost too low point again. So tonight I...

    Leaking pool (guess is underground plumbing at skimmer)

    So we have been losing about 2 inches of water with both the pumps running AND the pumps being turned off in a 24-hour period. It stops at the skimmer. We plugged the skimmer hole up with a rubber expansion plug and lost no water. I'm assuming this means that there is a leak in the plumbing? We...

    Pool leaking only when cold & pump is off

    Title pretty much says it. We had the same problem last winter around December & paid to have sonar leak detection. They patched the holes in late December. By February, it had leaked again. I’m talking 8-12 inches a month kind of leak. The pool guys said basically they had no clue— the patches...
