Tonight DIY Guy patched another hole in the liner. It is the third hole found this summer and the fourth one since last fall when our pool nearly emptied out. I found this new hole right next to the previous 3 patches.
After many cold swims looking for holes in the liner, DIY Guy bought himself a wetsuit for the job. Watching him put the wetsuit on brings me joy -- it's like watching him put on a man's version of Spanx.
Gabby, already in the water --
wonders what the heck is taking DIY Guy so long to jump in the pool
The leak is very easy to see and is on the slope where the pool gets deeper. You can see the bright blue patch from a previous leak in the photo.
DIY Guy can hold his breath for a VERY long time! When we were in Georgia he took on an underwater challenge with 3 of the young guys from the wedding party - DIY GUY won....by a long shot.
His amazing ability to hold his breath for a long time is very helpful - but staying at the bottom of the pool is a challenge. He has a weight belt -- but it isn't "weighted" yet.
My contribution to the mending was holding DIY Guy underwater with the pool brush! I wasn't going in that cold water...are you kidding me?
See the erosion the leaks have caused? We are planning to purchase a new liner after this pool season -- they will fix the erosion when the new liner is installed. I wonder if they install new liners in the fall -- or in the spring?
DIY Guy thinks we've filled the pool more than once this summer due to the leaks. That's 25,000 gallons of water each fill!
