Posted: Fri Oct 24, 2008 8:02 pm Post subject: Normal water loss
What is the amount an 8 x 4 pool (3 ft. sloping to 5 ft. depth) would the water level be expected to drop under normal conditions i.e. evaporation, usage, wind strengh etc. before you started to think you may have a leak?
I am experiencing around 10 mm per. day, is this normal
During the summer you can expect 1 tile maybe a little more due to evaporation.
A simple check is to get a large plastic washing up bowl mark halfway up and fill to the mark - place the bowl in the pool - note the pool level and compare the difference between the two, they should be about the same if the pool looses more it probably has a leak.
A good cover will stop up tp 97% of evaporation losses and can pay for itself quite quickly.
