One way to find a leak in a pool liner of an above ground pool is by using food coloring. When you add the food coloring in small amounts, you can see it leaving the pool through the leak.
You can detect a leak in your vinyl pool by watching the water level and looking for changes in that level. You can also squeeze a bottle of food coloring near the seams of the pool and watch to see if the coloring is drawn out of the pool.
I had a leak in the bottom of our gunite mosiac tile covered pool and was able to find it by lowering the water level to about 1 foot then dropping red dye slowly around the perimeter of the pool. The dye headed straight to the leak. We fixed the leak and have not had a problem since. To find a leak in a vinyl you can use the red dye,although the easiest thing to do is call your pool dealer and have them come and with a leak detector.Then use a clear patch or scrap piece of your liner(always cut in the shape of circle).
I used a mixture of dishsoap and water and rubbed it all around vinyl as I was adding air. It started to bubble at the leak.
Put a small amount of food coloring in the area of the pool you think is leaking and watch the food coloring disappear in the hole
i have a small rust stain and small hole on outside half way down the pool wall will my hole be right there.it only makes sense to me.the water has drained down just past that mark.should i patch it there or use the food colouring to make sure.
sounds like you have a leak some where
To fix a detached vinyl liner from its spot on an above ground pool, the water will have to be drained from the pool. Then, a marine patch can be placed on the area to re-attach the vinyl to the place where it came apart. Allow this to dry thoroughly before refilling the pool.
how do i find and repair leak in gunite pool with water in it?
they make a under water repair kit for vinyl pools,you can buy a local pool supply house
Not if it is a vinyl liner pool. You have to fix the leaks. The walls will collapse and you will have to get a new pool. Fill it back up and call American leak detection or another company. I recommend them because they will come out and fix it until it is repaired. If you don't, you will probably have to pay for a brand new pool essentially. I didn't get my pool closed until the second week of october because of this. Finally they fixed it and I closed it.
