    A couple of years ago my PVC conduit running to the deep end light must have frozen and cracked creating a slow leak. I "fixed" it by putting a small layer of epoxy around the area where the wires came out of of the cove. This was fine until last year when I needed to replace the light fixture...

    Pool Leak

    I suspected a leak all last season, but now that the pool is closed I definitely have a leak. My pool has lost water down to only about a foot of water in the pool since it was closed. So does it mean it's the liner, since everything is plugged and closed? So sad that the liner only got 6...

    We have just had our pool start up and we noticed that when the system (pump and filter) is on, water was weeping out of the raised spa through one of the small pipes on the side.

    Pool Leak...where to start

    Pool doesn't seem to leak until we run the pumps (bucket tested). When the pumps are running it leaks pretty quickly (1/2 inch per hour). Interesting thing about the leak, that I would like to get feedback on, is that it leaks but then it slows down. The skimmer is still pulling in water, there...
