Check the warranty period for the pool liner
if in warranty period ask for a replacement
. if not there are special plastic glues available from a pool shop that will do the job or take the liner to a upholstery or plastic awning manufacturer and have it welded again

Tip

////////////Detecting The Hole In A Leaking Pool Liner////////////


Pool liner has a hole in it....you keep adding water far too many times a week running up your water bills far to high....you call a pool guy and he recommends a "Diver" to call, when you call the diver you fall through the floor when he tells you the initial cost no matter whether he finds the leak or not.
This is what i have learned from the experts....had a pool diver come over and all he did was 'Nothing"...he charged me $400.00 took out and resealed my lights...broke my brick stones around the pool in various places due to his removal of the air tanks, talked a good line of balogna, took my check and left....left me $400.00 lighter in my wallet and no better off then I was before concerning my pool liner leak, he even told me after he came back to find it three times again that the leak was all in my mind and that the dropping of the water level was due to evaporation... this is all good fior someone who is new to a pool...but I have had this inground pool for 10 years prior to him telling me he usually always finds the leaks....he did not and tried to cover his inadequecies with a ration of bull stories...I was adding at least 2-3 hundred gallons of water everyday whether it was hot out or cold out, and this only started happening after about 10 years of owning the pool, in this case it didnot pay to have someone dive the pool because when you can see a real strong discoloration in your liner and the water level starts to drop all of a sudden every other day to at least 1/2-1.0 inches it is time to replace the liner.
If you have a newer then 8-10 year old liner by all means have it tested before you replace it, a cheap and inexpensive way to do this is to start at some point... I would first buy a $4.00 rubber plug to plug up the bottom drain....see if the water level drops...if it does problem is someplace else if it stops dropping the prblem is in the drain lines and that can be an expensive fix for an inground pool short of just leaving it plugged and never using the bottom drain feature again.
If the drain plugging doesn't fix the problem try blocking off the lines with plugs one at a time until you find the level stops dropping indicating which line is culprit, including the skimmers and please be sure you leave the filter off while doing these tests.
If none of the above finds the leaks get in the pool and being very still discharge a small puff of red food coloring under water around the light lense frames...trying to see if it gets sucked into a leaking area, also around the stair case if so equipped doing the same thing with the dye around the seams etc.
You may even find the filter is leaking at a joint causing the leak, or like i once found.... little under ground critters ate my skimmer lines... they punched pin holes into the rubber buried lines with there teeth...they were small moles, nocturnal like rodents that burrow under ground causing havoc on anything that is buried beneath the surface....I found this problem easily...the ground all of a sudden became wet and damp and eventually started to pool up with water for no apparnt reason...when I dug into the water pool I found a little gusher of water coming from the lines, these critters ate into the lines...had to cut them and couple them with a sleeve for the fix.

Center pipe was cracked when we took it out to replace the sand what would cause this plus there was sand under the bottom cover


Typically, the cracking of internal filter tank components is due to freezing temperatures over the Winter season. You should always COMPLETELY drain all water from your filter and store it inside during the winter.


Another reason is over chlorination of your pool water and/or adding chemicals directly to your water thru the wall skimmer.

My 14' pool is leaking from the bottom slowly. 1" per 26hrs. I can not find a hole. No water on the sides of the pool. It is leaking out from under it. How do I find the hole. I have patched holes...


Using goggles I inspect the bottom and looking at each individual speck on the bottom. Sometimes what looks like debris is actually a hole though it seems it would take a good size hole to leak that much. Check the seam by gently trying to spread it.

I noticed my pool was leaking air. I opened the upper ring blow up valve and there is hole inside of it. Can this be repaired? I would hate to get rid of my pool just because the air valve has a hole...


Take a 12 X 12 piece of plastic wrap, wet the pool ring, slide the plastic sheet along until you see the air bubble appear, mark leak with marker pen. Use repair patch. I swear this is better than soapy water!

The bottom portion of my 48Ft DE filter has a crack. Can it be fixed or replaced?


You should be able to get a replacement tank bottom from a pool supply store or even online. I would not suggest trying to fix it since it can run at a fairly high pressure if it gets dirty. You can probably seal the leak but the crack is not structurally sound and poses a danger to anyone around it when at operating pressure.

Leaking on LXIH dishwasher that is level


No. The water level is controlled by two probes inside the back RH corner of the tank. Level the unit with the smallest tilt backwards.

I would closely look at the wash (and rinse arms if equipped). Make sure there is no missing plugs (depends on how old unit is if plugs are used), and that there is no debris inside the wash arm. Debris will cause the water to spray off-line and hit the door seam directly.

Unable to get water clear last season could it be faulty pump


Although the chips inside the pump could decrease the efficiency i doubt that this is why you were unable to get the pool clear. What type of filter do you have, how old is the media inside it, and was the water just cloudy, or did you have algae problems?
