YES THERE IS A LOT OF TRASH THAT CAN GET IN THE VALVE TO MAKE IT LEAK. YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO CLEAN IT FURTHER I found that with the pump running, the pool water was rising as apparently the pump was pulling water out of the ground. This was with the pool water low and the skimmer plugged off in order to try to filter after a bad storm. When I shut off the pump, the pool water went down as the valve did not seat properly.

What causes well water to stop running?

On well water, there is sometimes a reservoir that needs to refill. So if water stopped coming out of your tap, normally you just have to wait till it refills. IF YOUR PUMP IS RUNNING & NO WATER YOU COULD HAVE A LEAK IN LINE FROM WELL TO PUMP.THE PUMP SHOULD PUMP UP PRESSURE & THEN LEAK BACK DOWN IN PRESSURE. I HAD THE VALVE GO BAD AT THE END OF LINE IN WELL & INSTEAD OF PULLING LINE FROM WELL, I INSTALLED A VALVE AT PUMP THAT LEAVES WATER FLOW FROM THE WELL, BUT DOES NOT ALLOW WATER TO LEAK BACK TO WELL. A SIMPLE FIX. FIRST, DID YOU TRY PRIMING THE PUMP BY FILLING WATER PUMP THROUGH THE PLUG ON THE PUMP & 2ND. ARE YOU SURE THE WELL IS NOT DRY. IF YOU PRIME THE PUMP WITH WATER & IT PUMPS NOW THE WELL WATER IS OK,BUT IF IT LEAKS DOWN & LOSES THE PRIME, THE FIX ABOVE WILL REMEDY THE PROBLEM.

Most water pumps leak from the "Weep Hole" This means the seal on the shaft has failed and the coolant is running through the bearing. Alot of pumps fail the seal because the bearing is loose and wobbly.

What could cause your inground pool to lose water while the pump is on?

Your pool is "most" likely to lose water "while" the pump is running. First check the pump & pipes around the pump to make sure there is no visible water. If the leak isn't obvious, there is a good chance your pool is leaking from the skimmer, the skimmer face plates, the water jets, or several other locations. The following web site ("www.poolleak.com") helped me find several leaks in my pool and saved me the trouble and frustration of calling an expensive pool professional. Good luck. I have a leak that loses more water with the pump running. Had a leak guy out several days ago and he found the leak to be in my return line. Cost: $800.00 to replace the line. Includes digging up my concrete and replacing it.
