Water Loss in My Pond
To the right: The pond at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, Texas
For several weeks now, I've been having increasing water loss from my pond. All my usual remedies haven't done anything to slow it down.
I'm losing 1.5 to 2 inches per day from the pond. I'd like to blame it on last week's horrible weather with its snow and ice, but the problem actually started weeks before that.
I do have a gunite and plaster constructed pond, and how and why it became a pond is a story that you can read from the earliest posts in this blog. Could it be that I have developed a crack in the gunite? I may not know that until we get spring weather and I can drain my pond.
I tried to cover the basics of water loss in a pond in this summary , but I may not know everything.
I wish everything looked as nice as the pond in the above photo. Sigh....
