    Question Suspecting a leak

    Hey TFP'ers, so spring is here and I have a saturated lawn with standing water. Yes we have had rain but I have never had standing water for more that a couple of days. The pool level seems to be lower than when I winterized it last fall. Any ideas on how to test this theory? Too early to open the pool but I am trying to get my lawn into shape.

    Thanks Tex. I just went Macgyver with it. I made a water level indicator from an LED, a resistor, a c cell battery, float switch and some tape. The cover is still on the pool so not really easy to get in there and do any marking of sorts. If the water level drops 1/8" the LED will light and I will know.

    Holy smokes! We're not worthy! You and "Jim R" (one of our MODS) need to compare gadgets. ha.

    It's actually a good time to open for this area.

    yeah you guys get a little more sun than I do. We should get more this year since I had a few trees removed. This liner is only 3 seasons old but as much water as I have in the yard I am suspicious.
