I am a new pool owner and new to this Forum, so please bear with me.
The new home I purchased has an incredible raised perimeter overflow pool with a further raised spa that spills on 3 sides into the pool and one side into a trough. We love everything about the pool however our water bills are out of control. I am estimating that I am using between 10k to 15k more gallons of water each month than I ever have in any month. I know it will be more as I live in South Florida however my water bill should never be more than my electric bill. The pool is approximately 680 sq ft.
As a result, I believe there may be a pressure side leak as the pool seems to lose water when the pump is on, however I cannot locate where the water would be going. That being said, the pool company is trying to convince me that it would be reasonable to expect that this type of pool would evaporate 3/4 of an inch of water per day or more!!!! This seems insane to me. I have tried to research but there doesn't seem to be. any good sites on what to expect with a perimeter overflow pool and they are all set up differently.
I was wondering what everyone's thoughts would be on this in this forum.
Please feel free to ask questions. Thanks
