Well now it is morning --- and zero water loss. Which I hope means there is no underground leak.
Today I am going to go take a look at that O-Ring.

To leave my pump / filter running all night - all I needed to do is tell my Electric Company my bank account and routing number and how to access my retirement savings...

OK. Truth is -- I have a timer on it -- I just removed the pin settings so it had no shut off [or start] on it -- the dial just spins and spins.

My water level was "perfect" -- meaning there is a little mark on the skimmer of where the pool should be filled to -- in general -- and that is where I stopped fillng it with the hose yesterday - and where it still is.

So -- just checked the O-Ring and it looked pretty good -- but I wiped it down and lubed it up and primed up that whole area and started the filter again. Will go back in a few and look to see if it looks any different in terms of the water level staying constant and psi.

The pool guys I wanted to come and look just called and have a cancellation today -- but it's $135 just o drop by --- I'd love to avoid that -- but well...

OK -- sorry for now triple posting... but I think this is something you NEED to know ASAP

I put my filter in backwash, rinse, and back to filter and watched each for a couple minutes. The flow is uninterrupted and strong.

Again - I cleaned it all up and lubed the crepe out of it. By the way -- would love to know the proper name for this thing.

I hope this makes a difference for you too -- one that lasts.

It's time to start over on this thread as it has been hopelessly hi-jacked. Threads cannot be handled logically if more than one person is asking questions.

So, I am locking this thread. Both lucky13F and RIPpoolguy19 can start their own individual threads and the conversation can resume but DO NOT hi-jack another's thread by asking your own questions inside an already started thread........start your own new one.
