Default HELP! Pool Liner Repair

I need the phone #'s for a GOOD pool liner repairman. My pool is leaking about an inch a day but I can't find a hole or where the water is going.

Also ,for those of you that's had it done recently,can you let me know {per pm if you'd like} about how much it's going to cost me.

If you can help it, don't call Pool Doctor. Big long list of why, but get anyone else. Anyone that can scuba dive can go down there and look, using a pattern to search for holes. Someone standing on the side with a patch kit prepping the patches for the diver works. You'll be surprised at how many tears there actually are. Look for "soft spots"...

Check inside the skimmer. My plactic around my skimmer (close to where the water goes into the hole) developed a crack about 4 years ago. I was losing about an inch every three days. I got some material from Pinch a penny. Kinda like a paste you mix together and put on the crach, stopped the leak and has not broken down since I did it.

I had several folks here "looking" for the leak, but they could not find it:banghead

I was looking my self and found it, fixed it for about 15 bucks.

Try Johnson Pools - 436-7665. They are great and replaced my liner about 5 years ago, and did a super job. They have a scuba diver and can take care of any problem you may have with your pool.

Check one thing before you call a pool man out to your house. This happend to me a year or so back. I was also loosing water in my pool. Turns out that the last time i was back washing my pool and when I went to turn the dial back to the cycle mode. I didnt quite get the handle to fall all the way back down into its notch and it was allowing enough water to notice a drop in the level in a days time to continue to be released down the waist line going out into the yard. It was an easy fix on my part. Might want to check that out before you get your check book out.

Idea.... Check around steps if you have any...If you are able to get to the bottom and have a drain in yours, you might want to remove the drain grid, and plug the bottom drain. Then check if still loosing water. It could be the drain return. Might have a leak/broken PVC pipe. Just wanted to add what hasn't been mentioned.

Then again I'm not "Certified"......well any more that is.:banghead:banghead

I have almost totally removed a 20' X 40' X 10' liner (only the lip on the deep end not removed), repaired it and reinstalled it by myself, and I'll tell you it was a bitch to reinstall and get it back to original. I had pool people tell me it couldn't be done. I repaired one with a leak (tear) around the steps. Also removed that section to repair.
