Huge water bill spike. Isolated to pool system. Did the bucket test. Turned auto fill off. Losing water over 24 hours when pump is on. So now
I have to isolate where In the system. I recently changed the suction valve cap. Heyward. But leaking before that. Any suggestions on how proceed? Thanks

A leak while the pump is on would point to a couple possible areas:
1 - A leak in the return (pressure side) lines (look for soggy ground)
2 - If you have a sand filter, check the WASTE line exit (bad spider gasket)
