Yep. As the Old Guy says, " If you get a swimming pool, make sure it has a hitch so you can get it the hell outta there when it causes problems"! LOL!
Our pool (which is 35 yrs old), has been leaking from a jet, that we know. Then, the flower bed started getting wet. Soggy wet. Thought it was a sprinkler line. Started digging up the line. Nope. When we turned the pool on, water leaking everywhere. Could ya all hear the cussin? LOL! We called around and found this wonderful place called American Leak Detection. The kid came out, hooked some stuff up and wham! Told us exactly where the leak was, what was leaking, and how much of the concrete we needed to cut out. He was right on the mark. Saved us a whole lotta headaches. Since my "pool boy" had fixed the big leak, he kept the momentum going and fixed the jet too! When he uncovered the big leak, he came unhinged! They used poly pipe instead of PVC! DOH! And a nylon "T". So he replaced it with steel fittings. He is such a genius! We are now filling the pool back up and will test the repairs. (fingers crossed).
All put back together.
Tools of the trade. Knee cushion and saw.

I darkened this one. I kinda like it! Looks like fall.
Thanks for stopping by.
