Water leak from inside the tv aerial through the pin connector

I have just found a pool of water by my tv. I have found that the water is coming from inside the metal pin part of the aerial connector. The aerial is on the roof and comes through the skirting board into the first floor bedroom. The aerial is then connected to the tv which sits on a set of chester drawers. Therefore i know that the water is not on the outside of the cable as it would not been able to travel uphill!
Please can someone advise me as to how this is possible?

Its most likely a leak in the roof following the wire down to the tv this could be a very big problem as any wood on the way to the tv has a chance to rapidly rot and create larger voids for air to get through you will want to send someone up to the roof to check where the line comes in and caulk the hell out of it

I have 4 pin holes on my Intex pool. I tried patching from the outside..but water is leaking thru the patch.. What am I doing wrong? Can they be fixed?


Patch it from the inside. Get the special pool repair kit that allows under water patching. The kit I am talking about is superior to all others, expect to pay $12.00 . I use this kind of kit on my water bed though not from the inside.

Bucket Testing to Locate Leaks In Your Swimming Pool


<span>How To Conduct a Swimming Pool Leak Detection Using A Simple Bucket Test </span> <p><img src="Bucket.jpg" />In Arizona, you can see up a 3/4" per day loss through evaporation and it is suspected that during the course of a year, that nearly 3/4 of the pool would have been replaced due to evaporation. <br /> <p><span>Evaporation will vary greatly </span><span>depending</span><span> on a several factors; water temperature, air temperature, wind, dew points, barometric pressures and just overall changes in seasons. Also, if you heat your pool, you will also notice variations in evaporation. Because of these factors, evaporation rates can fluctuate from day to day, pool to pool, and of course, from parts of the country to others.</span><br /> <p>It is amazing how many people call in with concerns of leaks in their pool. They really are not sure <i>why</i> they are concerned but something has caught their attention and caused concern.<br /> <p>Before becoming too concerned about a leak, or spending the money on an expensive leak detection, conduct simple bucket test to determine if water loss in your swimming pool is due to a leak or is just evaporation. <br /> <p>In a nut shell, a bucket test exposes water in a bucket to the same conditions as those affecting your swimming pool. By comparing the water loss in the bucket to that in the pool, it is possible to determine if the pool is leaking or if supposed leaks are just the result of water being lost to the air.<br /> <p>Before undertaking any test, make sure your automatic water leveler is turned off!<br /> Bucket Test Procedure: <ol> <li>Bring the pool water to its normal level</li> <li>Fill an empty bucket with pool water to about one inch from the top of bucket. (By filling the bucket close to the top you are ensuring that air movement over the surface of the bucket will similar to that of the pool.)</li> <li>Place the bucket on the first or second step of the pool. To keep it from floating away it may be necessary to place a few bricks or rocks into the bucket. (By placing the bucket in the pool water you are ensuring that the water temperature of each body of water will be similar).</li> <li>Mark the water level inside the bucket with a permanent marker on the outside of the bucket.</li> <li>Mark the water level of the pool on the outside of the bucket, on the pool wall, or skimmer face plate. I recommend the bucket, because then you have something tangible to look at. </li> <li>Operate the pool for 24 hours as it had been operated when a leak was first suspected, in most cases, this will be the normal run times. </li> <li>After 24 hours, make a second mark on the bucket to indicate the level of the water in the bucket and do the same for the pool level.</li> <li>Compare the two levels. If the pool water has changed more than the inside water level, there is probably a leak. At this point, you should contact a professional leak detection agency.</li></ol> <span>You are probably wondering how this works when the body of waters are so vastly different in size. It all comes down to <i>surface area</i>. No matter how large or how small, environmental factors act the same on the surface area of the body you are testing. </span> <span><br /></span> Further Diagnosis: Establishing suspected leak locations with a "Pump on/Pump off test" <br /> <p>Comparing the results of the bucket tests with the pump on for 24 hours to the results with the pump off for 24 hours can provide additional information as to the type of leaking you may be experiencing. <br /> <p>Conduct a second bucket test with the equipment sitting idle. Do the same steps as noted above. Any leaks during this time are now called <b>static leaks.</b><br /> <p>Water loss pump on &gt; water loss pump off = suspect return plumbing leaks (Pressure side plumbing)<br /> <p><b><u>RESULT #1:</u></b> Water Loss Active <b>greater than </b> Water Loss Static <br /> <p><u>PROBABILITY:</u> Skimmer/main drain or other plumbing leaks (return lines, infloor system, aerator)\<br /> <p><b><u>RESULT #2:</u></b> Water Loss Active <b>equal to </b>Water Loss Static <br /> <p><u>PROBABILITY:</u> suspect shell, liner or fitting leaks, (non-plumbing)<br /> <p>If you have an in floor cleaning system, water feature or specialty items on your pool you should also conduct independent tests with each of these in the normal operation and compare them against other results when they are not in operation.<br /> <p>These types of tests are not 100%, but they do provide you with enough information to determine if further leak detection is necessary and to provide the leak detection company with some great information!<br /> <p><br /> <p>We hope to have been of service to you!<br /> <p>The Ugly Pool Guy, <a href="http://www.wefixuglypools.com">www.WeFixUglyPools.com</a><br />

////////////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.

04 Mustang V6: The convertable top is leaking somewhere which causes water to pool behind drivers seat. Where should I start?


The best way to find this leak is to use a waterhose, make sure inside is dry them start a slow water spary at the front window and only front glass it is better to have someone inside with a light looking to see a stream coming in, after a while and no leak found start moving up to the top and work your way to rear glass but do this slowly to pinpoint the leak the preson inside must look around also.

The top ring on my easy set pool leaks air. How


I suppose the pool is already full of water. You could remove some of the water, then use soapy water and a paint brush to find the leak. Bubble blowing liquid is ideal for this. This will be easier on the the outside than on the inside. Once found, you may be able to fix with duct tape. But they sell repair kits that probably work better. Don't use a tire or bike tube patch - those are for rubber. I hope this helps you, and I hope the kids have fun in the pool this summer! Al K

Soapy water never worked for me... Pour kids bubbles into a bowl and use a paint brush to spread the bubbles on the top ring. If there is a hole you'll see it begin to blow a bubble where the hole is.  patch with vinyl repair kit.

LLD125 pool heater leaking water from inside


My heat exchanger was cracked. I found an old welder who knew how to weld the cracks for $100 vs $900 for a new exchanger,. Also ordered replacement seals for the 2 chambers. I used high temp automotive engine sealant as an additional sealant precaution. Also inspected tubes and cleaned corrosion. Works fine last 3 years. Takes some mechanical skills.

Water is leaking from refrigerator forming pools of water on floor.


You need to pay attention where the water is coming from. If the water comes from doors, look for magnet seal broken or spills from the inside the fridge. If the water comes from the bottom (or back) of the unit, it may be an installation issue.

Once you locate the source, it will be easy to fix.

Water leak


If the water is coming from the inside of the freezer (you will see ice build up on the freezer floor) then the drain is frozen over and will need to be cleared using hot water.  If not and if your model has a dispenser, then check the water line connector from the bottom front of the fridge to the freezer door.  Let me know what you find.
