Hi all, new guy here. Recently, last weekend, I replaced my pool light fixture. Since then the pool has been leaking. I went back into the niche and sealed the conduit hole, with putty, for a temporary fix to see if that was the reason for the leak. It wasn’t. I filled the pool to a marked level and over night, no motor running, the water level dropped about an inch. I don’t see how the water could drop so fast even if the putty wasn’t doing the trick. I also let the water drop lower than the skimmer intake to verify that the leak wasn’t from the skimmer.
All I did was replace the lighting fixture. I cut the cable from the old fixture, spliced the new fixture cable to it and pulled it through the conduit. Then i screwed the fixture in place. It wasn’t a perfect fit, but; it is a wet housing and the old fixture didn’t have a gasket and the bottom screw was missing so it wasn’t a ”perfect” fit either. Any ideas?
thanks in advance,
