Generally, the skimmer area of the pool can be sleeved with PVC if there is a leak
NO the leak is in the entrance to the skimmer, a grout line was broken when I had the pool replastered and the vibrations from the jackhammers did it. The plaster co. will not take responsibility for this. You have to actually determine that the skimmer is in fact leaking. Repair kits are available on the market just for this situation. However, the leak has to be at the very bottom or near bottom of the skimmer. Have you had a pressure test on the system?
Yes possibly In reality, the skimmer will not cause a leak. What causes leaks are people who do not connect or glue the fittings to the skimmer properly. Or ground movement like earthquakes. k
turn the pool pump off,take off the cover of the pool skimmer box, The pool water level must be above the area where the skimmer box meets the pool wall. If it is not, add water to the pool until it is at least 1 inch above this seam.
Best guess is that there is a leak in the return pipe from the skimmer to the pump. Sorry to say its probly not a cheap fix. There also could be a leak at the gasket around the skimmer opening.
Usually by cutting an access hole in ground floor ceiling to locate and fix leak.
You might be pulling air from the skimmer or there is a leak some place within your pump on the suction side
Duct Tape You don't. You replace either the top or the bottom damaged piece or replace the entire filter. However if the leak is coming from an area that should have a gasket as in between the lid and the tank itself then the gasket may need replacing. Since you did not geve the location of the leak it is impossible to give you a credible answer.
If the leak is in the plumbing, you can get a qualified leak detection company repair the broken pipe, skimmer, or other area where the leak exists. If the leak is in the surface of the pool (such as a hole, or through cracks in the surface), coating the pool with a new fiberglass surface is your best bet. Fiberglass can be applied over plaster, aggregate (pebble-tec), vinyl liners, and virtually any other surface. You can see a video here:http://www.advancedpoolcoatings.com/videos.htmlthat is the best answer you can ever get!! does this answer your question?
Are you lossing a lot of water? Do you use any type pool cleaner that attached into the skimmer that bounces on the pool floor? If you do and the base is poolcrete is being better down.. and THAT could cause a hole... You may or may not have a leak but the sunken area is caused by the collapse of the sand or ground under that area of the pool allowing the liner to fill in the hole created by that collapse.
You have a leak. You need to find and repair the leak.You have a leak. You need to find and repair the leak.
yes as long as it is glued properley
