Among a large front lawn and upkeep.. we have a big inground pool in the back.
Last year, it began losing water, quickly. (imagine that! )I surmised after several experiments.. that the problem must be in the bottom drain. That led to the idea of draining the entire pool (9 ft deep in the deep end) to check out the possibility of a leak at the bottom.
Not an easy task.. the slope into the deep end is pretty steep and trying to get the dirty leaf infested water out so I could check the drain was a fight I was determined to win.
so.. in the battle of Woman vs. Pool.. looking at one of my bruises...
I have to say... POOL wins.
