niche pool leak

Postby gleeh » Mon 23 Jul, 2018 07:51

I drained the pool down just below the conduit, to expose the conduit opening and put new AB putty and Sika on top. The pool continued to leak down to one inch above the bottom of the niche. I read on here that the ground post is attached to the niche i.e. does not go through so no need to putty. The diamond brite is perfect around the niche. The only other thing I see is that it looks like the niche has a trim piece, could it be the problem? Can't figure out how to attach a photo here
