New pool installed. I know humidity is pretty low right now (for Houston) and losing about 1/4" of water overnight with NOTHING running. Should I be concerned? We are going to dye check skimmers tomorrow. Pool proper is 21' x 19' with a 7' x 11' tanning ledge. Thanks!

I just added some water to my pool (Katy, TX). The sun has been out everyday for past 5 days so I think it is just evaporation. You can do what you need to do to verify - maybe the bucket test such that you isolate evaporation from leak.

Thanks...so 1/4" per 12 hours with hot sunny days and low humidity nights would be considered ok? Pool builder coming today to check skimmers as a first test. If we don't find anything i'll try bucket test.
