Here's my pool setup.
There's the drain at the bottom of the pool and the skimmer. There must be a T underground because i cannot set it to pull from just the skimmer or from just the bottom. There is only one pipe that comes out of the ground by the pool pump.
Now, my pool definitely has a leak and i think it is coming from the skimmer area. Once the water level gets below the skimmer it does not leak anymore, which makes me wonder what this second pipe is for in the skimmer. Whenever the pump is on it only sucks water from one of the pipes...does anybody know what the second pipe in there is for? Maybe that's where the pool is leaking from (i hope, would hate to have to pay $$$$$ to have someone dig up my yard)
Well thanks for the input guys!
