    Plumbing losing pressure?

    I'm wondering if my plumbing should have list pressure overnight? I just had the pool plumbing done yesterday & the gauge was sitting at 41 last night, it's at 36 now, is this okay?

    Thanks in advance for any information !

    Just to clarify, but are you saying that your pool plumbing is closed up and on pressure test? If so, depending on your temperature drop, a 5# (12%) isn't out of the question. If possible, leave it closed with your gauge on and see if the pressure rises as temps warm.

    Yes, it is on a pressure test for inspection. The gauge is on the pool filter itself. It was 41 when he left last night & has dropped to 36. I wasn't sure what to expect. I will watch it today.
    Thanks!
