    The statement above is true.

    I have checked for low liner spots around the majority of top permeter. I should check all of it before proceeding to remove the spillway stones. I did find a low spot that was only about 1 inch above water level when the pumps were running.

    Good luck and I'll ponder some more.

    We had to cut a drip edge in three formal rocks today so I took some pics for you.

    How do you know its not leaking under the top cap but above the liner (between the two?) In the one picture, it looks like its coming from dead center under the waterfall as just a small leak, but it just soaks down.

    My foreman and I spent 12 hours on Saturday taking apart the top pool. Liner was overlapped correctly with no low edges in liner.

    I guess the liner going between the two walls is not retaining the water on the edges or it has a large whole somewhere. I am going to start taking the wall apart on Wednesday. The customer is not happy.

    XStream Aquatics,

    Took a video of the water feature half way apart. How do you post a video? Its 30 mb. How do I reduce the size? Gary is going to come and help fix this thing on Friday...

    Thanks, aj
