    Finding a leak

    I moved my pool yesterday.

    It had been for the most part empty for the last month or so.

    I drained all the water I could out (maybe 3 gallons left total)

    I had 8 people helpe move it from where it was at to the new location (about 20 feet away)

    I go to fill it up and I see it start puddling outside on one side.

    I cant find the leak by visual inspection.

    Any help on finding a leak? It seems like a good sized leak but I dont see any tears in the pool.

    Is there a "trick" to finding leaks?

    Get in the pool and squirt some food coloring near where you think the leak may be and see where the colored liquid is drawn and should should find the leak.
