Return Pipe Leaking

Postby robsp » Sat 23 Sep, 2006 14:10

Hi All,

Any help is appreciated.

I noticed my pool was losing water. first it was the multi-valve gasket and then I found a puddle of water next to the pool near a return pipe to my pool (eyeball return). I dug down and found the pipe and I can see crack in the pipe (actually it is a 45 degree elbow where it turns to return to the pool).
However, I can not get the water to stop flowing into the pipe, I have replaced the eyeball with a winter plug and cutoff the pump and closed the return pipe to the pool at the polaris pump. Still water.

Do I need to get a winter plug and put it in the skimmers also? I would think that would be a different pipe.

if you have more then one return you coul dhave all of the tee'd together, plug all holes or lower the water to the return level.
