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:

A pool vacuum leak could mean that there is a leak in the vacuum hose that you use to vac the pool. Or it could mean that there is a leak on the suction side of the pump. It could be located somewhere between the skimmer and the inlet of the pump. At the pump it could mean that there is a leak at the pump seal or the pump lid or a pump gasket. Some of these leaks will not produce water at those leaks they may only suck air into the system. k

Only temporarily. If you are able to get it sealled, depending on the nature of the leak, you may get up to a month before it will reopen. The correct way to fix your leak depends upon where exactly the leak is, how large the leak is, and what type of surface your pool is made of.

There are products for leak detection. Basically they are dye solutions that are dripped into a completely still pool, near potential sites of leaks. The dye solution will lead the way to the leak -- hopefully. Many pool dealers carry the product. There are companies that specialize in leak detection, using sound detection equipment or techniques. Depending upon the type and location of the leak, it may be possible to add a leak sealer to the appropriate location. A leak sealer product, such as FIX A LEAK can create a permanent seal in walls, floors or the filtration system. A pool professional dealer should have FIX A LEAK available and be familiar with its usage. Good luck and I hope that the information will prove helpful.

The 1997 Pontiac Sun fire axle seal can leak because of age. A bad wheel bearing is the most common cause for an axle seal to leak.

A 2001 Ford escape differential leak is usually caused by a bad seal. Replace the differential seal. The new seal should stop the oil leak.

Generally, the skimmer area of the pool can be sleeved with PVC if there is a leak

That depends on the construction and finish of the pool.

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.

Leak detection dye can be purchased at any number of pool repair/maintenance companies/websites; it can also be found on eBay. There is no powder you can put into a swimming pool to detect a leak.

A good way to see if you have a leak in your pool is to # take a bucket and fill it with water from your pool. # mark it at the water level. # mark the pool at the water level. # wait a few days if there is no leak in the pool then the water level in the bucket should have reduced by the same amount as the water level in the pool, however if the water level in the pool has gone down more then the water level in the bucket you have a leak in the pool or in the pipes around the pool.

AnswerCheck the crank pully bolt. If it has come loose you will have a leak.The crank pully bolt does not have anything to do with the crank shaft seal leak. Thebolt is independent of the seal. To replace seal remove crank shaft pully and you will have access to crank shaft seal, pull out & replace seal.

I believe you are talking about the pump seal. If there is dampness at the base of the pump you are going to have to consider soon to replace the pump seal. This will only get worse. This is a common occurrence and happens to all pumps. Ken

There is a seal to seal the pan to the block. This seal goes out mostly do to lack of oil changes. Change oil then add a stop seal leak additive that closes off the leak with no harm to the engine. It works!

Could be the fron seal, rear seal, or pan gasket
