Hi, Having never had a pool I am panicking because we are losing water. I am certain it is not the pool itelf but when the pump goes on . The filter/backwash lever is definately in the filter position but there is no visible sign of water loss. The amount of water lost suggests it is being pumped straight out with none returning to the pool, but you can see and feel that it is being returned to the pool. Could it be the valve on top of the sand filter has had its day.Any advice would be great. Austin

How much water are you actually losing? A little? a lot? Is it fiberglass/concrete/lined? All have their own anomalies. You'll be surprised how much water you can lose on a single warm day without a pool cover, especially over summer. Stupid question, but I suppose you've looked for leaks VERY carefully around the entire pump/filter assembly while the pump is actually running? KIEREN
