Ok, so I get my pool cleaned up and algae free after leaving it uncovered this past winter (technical difficulties with my cover). Everything was great until I noticed a puddle of water around the one side of the pool closest to the return. Saw no active leaking and there had been no splashing, etc.. Was watching the situation... puddle dried up and things seemed ok..Well the puddle is back again, I noticed that I am vacuuming up sand, water level seems to be dropping more than normal, and despite good numbers my pool has a tint to it. The eye ball return piece where the screws are have two tiny cracks but when I filled my pool I checked for leaks there and it was ok??? How do I find my leak??? I read about using food coloring to detect the leak, but not sure how to do it correctly.
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
