Often, the hole can be found by looking carefully at the water outside the pool. Normally, if you can see water outside, the hole is big enough to be found visually. Locate the general area, and try to pinpoint it by looking at the water coming out around the bottome rail. If you can't see the bottom rail due to dirt, grass, or rocks / flowers, you may have to dig out in the wet spot. With goggle inside the pool, and by analyzing spots where it looks like the water is coming from (keep in mind that water will often run along the bottom rails and come out at the legs), you can usually find the leak visually (a hole or a tear, possibly a splitting seam?).

You might also try a small squeeze bottle of food coloring, or a handful of clayey dirt to dissolve in the water near the leak and watch it's action.

Of course, you can also call a professional leak detector.

How do I Find a leak in above ground vinyl pool liner?

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.


How long before you drain your Doughboy above-ground pool do you have to fill it?

Hmmm, you should only drain a small portion of the water unless you are going to replace the liner. The liner and/or the pool walls could collapse or the liner could pop out of the retaining track. k


Why does your vinyl pool liner have ripples?

One cause is a leak.. A small hole/tear in the liner allows water to get behind/under the liner. Now, without the water pressure pressing against it (or, with equal pressure above and below), the liner 'floats' away from the ground/wall. If you see an increase in the number or severity of the wrinkles, you likely have a small hole somewhere...

Do rocks with small crytals form underground or above ground?

Rocks with small crystals form above ground, because when formed under ground the magma makes the rock cool slower causing more time for the crystals to grow. Above ground the rock cools faster, because the air isn't as hot under ground than above ground.


Do i need to remove all small wrinkles in a above ground pool?

If you can see them when its dry, you will see them when its full. Put a shop vac into the hole for the return(where the water goes back in). It will pull the liner tight to the walls and floor.


What causes sand to wash away under an above ground pool?

Could be several things. If your pool walls are sunk into ground instead of setting on the ground, or pool is at base of a slope in the yard, and sand is washing out from under pool floor, it might just be a spot where heavy rains let water flow under pool wall and floor eroding the sand under the liner. Usually small pin-holes in the liner won't do much if anything to the sand, but if you get a larger hole in the liner, the water leaking out of the pool could also cause erosion of the sand under the liner.

Does the stem grow above or below the ground?

Most of the stem grows above ground but there is a small part that grows below the soil which then splits into the roots. But it is only 5% or 10% that is below ground.


How do you fix an above ground pool liner that's leaking?

It depends on how big the leak is... You'll have to get it dry and clean that's for sure. Then find a patch kit that correlates to the type of material used in the liner. That will only work if the leak is small enough. Be sure and use a cleaning solvent that makes the liner receptive to the patch material. EDIT: This is not correct. Today's repair methods for pool liners do not require the liner to be dry. In fact, if you remove the water from a liner pool, the liner is likely to shrink and will not easily restretch, so it is preferred to keep the water in the pool when doing the repair!


Can hail damage a pool liner?

Yes they can. We just had a freak storm here in Perth with hailstones the size of golf balls. There are about a dozen circular punctures to the liner just above the water line on a small section - ouch!
