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?

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.

What do you do if you have a leak in your pool?

That depends on what kind of pool you have. If its an inflatable pool or a plastic kiddy pool then you drain the water,patch up the leakage area with water proof tape and if that works then you know that it's fixed. If its the kind of pool that is dug into the ground then you might need to call someone that can fix pools.
