K,

You can try this... Leak Detection - Trouble Free Pool

Basically, you need to determine if the leak is with the pump on or off...

Most leaks are at the skimmer or at the light.

One possible point that often gets overlooked is the backwash drain line..

Thanks,

Jim R.

I Atlanta its been in the mid 90’s and i am losing a lot 1/2 to an 1” a day due to evaporation. Did yours just start?
Funny somebody asked on our neighborhood page if others were having the same issue.
But yours sounds like more then evaporation if you’re losing that much

K,

1" is a lot, but it would not hurt to run the bucket test, just to make sure..

Thanks,

Jim R.

Questions to OP:

What are the now prevailing winds MPH ?
Is your pool exposed to the winds and for how long?
Is your pool exposed to the sun all day or not, how long?

If your pool is directly exposed to the winds and full sun all day long, then losing 3/4-1" is not impossible.

That is VERY atypical. 1/4 daily can be attributed to evaporation in your climate......not much more than that.
