We have a 24-in above ground pool. We opened the pool in April and have had to top off the water every 3 to 5 days. We noticed sanding water around the side of the pool and to the back We found a tear in the liner that we patched and a small hole that we have patched we continue to see loss of water. We turned off the pump and as soon as the water level got below the skimmer it seems as the leaking has stopped. Is there a way to tell if there is a hole in the liner above the water level or could it be something else?

Welcome! :wave: Generally once the water level stops dropping, you've gotten close to the culprit of the leak. At that new (dropped) waterline, inspect carefully. If it stopped at the bottom of the skimmer, the problem may be in, around or under the skimmer (plumbing). What kind of pool do you have? It would help if you updated your signature fo us so we know what kind of pool and equipment you have. We'll do what we can to help.
