Leaking Pool

Postby tbspeaks » Sun 13 Dec, 2015 09:19

Hello, new to the forum. I closed our 15x30 above ground pool as usual this year (Kentucky). I drained the water down a few feet as usual, put the chemicals in and put the cover on. I started noticing that the water level is way below where it originally started so I definitely have a leak but I can't tell where. My question is should I leave the cover on our remove it? I am afraid the pool is going to collapse. Help please and thanks in advance.

If you are not going to address the leak right now you can leave the cover on, but you do need to keep water in the pool or you risk structural damage to the walls.
