There are pipes above the ground leading to the cholorinator and other thin
gs. Anyway, one is leaking a little ... there is an "indentation" a little
larger than a bottle cap - bleached white - and I know it's caused by a le
ak. The spot was dry when I was out there - and I think I saw a drop fall
off where two pipes are joined together.
Question: Is there a chance I could wrap tape around it and stop it from g
etting bigger? Or should I go ahead and call someone to come look at it no
w before it gets bigger. Have no idea what caused it...I don't use that ch
olorinator - I use the kind of container that floats in the pool with table
ts in it.
You can get some "A/B" epoxy from the pool store or a hardware place
and give it a try but you might end up cutting out the bad joint and
If you go for the epoxy, be sure the area is clean and dry.
Wipe it down well with lacquer thinner, let it dry and keep the pump
off for a day.

I went back and looked again .. and discovered that what I thought was a ho
le made by dripping water was a hole made by something else. I have moles
all over the yard, digging and making "runways". There was the little hole
under the pipes and then a about a foot further down there were some other
little holes ... no pipe to leak. I am pretty sure that the hole is not c
aused by a drip. And I sure am relieved to see that. Don't know what I wi
ll do about the moles - not much I can do. I live in an area where the wea
ther has been really dry...and the grass is dying. Thanks for trying.
