Pool losing water?

Postby qwertyjjj » Thu 27 Dec, 2012 03:44

We have a negative edge pool so I can't do the bucket test to see the difference between evaporation and leaks.
There is a blue tank in the pump room that holds 3000l of watr, this balances out the water in the main pool so I turned off the water autofill on this blue tank and measure dhow much water it lost over 2 days.
It seems to have lost 10cm.
Tank is 1.3m x 1.6m wide so I figured that was about 0.2m3 over 2 days or 200 litres.
This seems like a lot to evaopration doesn't it? Outside temps are about 17 degrees during the day and sunny.

In the pump room, I saw a whole load of calcium deposits roughly from where the bottom of the pool is and the outside wall of the pool seems to have a wet patch aea about 5cmx5cm.

Since your post in 2012, have you been able to determine your reason for water loss?
Do you like your knife edge pool?
We are having a knife edge pool installed and could use some advise.
