Can A Leak Fix Itself?
Posted 05 January 2012 - 10:07 AM
Recently on this forum I had a problem with my pump not working, which turned out to be the pump basket filter gasket not making a good seal. After properly lubricating it, my pump has worked flawlessly. I also lubed the gasket around the large filter container.
Then, oddly, the water level has not gone down in the pool since then! (Except for normal evaporation, which is minimal in the winter.) We have not had to add water in the weeks since fixing the gasket. We never saw water near the pump on the concrete or anywhere.
Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? Does anyone have a guess as to how we could be losing up to 1/4" of water per day from the pool because a pump basket gasket was not sealing correctly? Or the filter gasket?

I have fixed nearly every residential pool problem so far. If I can't do it, I know who to call.
