Hey TFP'ers, so spring is here and I have a saturated lawn with standing water. Yes we have had rain but I have never had standing water for more that a couple of days. The pool level seems to be lower than when I winterized it last fall. Any ideas on how to test this theory? Too early to open the pool but I am trying to get my lawn into shape.

Have you looked at the TFP Pool School - Leak Detection page yet? There's some good tips there to get you started. Let us know if you still have questions. Good luck!
Thanks Tex. I just went Macgyver with it. I made a water level indicator from an LED, a resistor, a c cell battery, float switch and some tape. The cover is still on the pool so not really easy to get in there and do any marking of sorts. If the water level drops 1/8" the LED will light and I will know.
