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.
I found a leak by inflating it and spraying a heavy liguid soap and water mix and watching for bubbles and movement. Sad thing is I didn't find all the leaks which brought me here. I would also like some 'miracle fluid' :) to fill it with to stop the leaks. Still looking. -Dave
Good question! A neighbor just gave me an above ground pool and it appears that the inflatable ring has a small leak in it. I have tried spraying it with soapy water to see if there is any area that bubbles but have so far not been able to identify the leak. I hope someone else has a better idea.
Look for wet spot on the ground.
it is because there are not many people who actually use above ground pools I recommend getting a underground pool so then it wont leak
No, but you can buy a cheap patch kit at pool stores or other places to easily patch above ground pools.
To repair a leak near the filter return of an above ground pool, a marine patch should be used. Marine patches are available at home improvement stores like Menards and Home Depot.
look for the wet spots. where the grass is greener is usaully a clue. fittings that night be leaking or hole in liner.
Put your winter plugs in blocking off all flow to the pipes and etc. If the water still drops, it's in your pool.
Food coloring works best. I f you have an idea of where the leak is use some food coloring, near the suspected area, and watch if it is pulled out.
there is less pressure above the ground so the ink inside it burlge outside and flow in airplane......
You look for a patch of very wet ground.
