Did you get a home warranty policy for all your appliances and pool equipment? If so many have a clause to cover repairs depending on what is causing the leak. Also let me know if you need a pool plaster person I can refer one or AA702 I am sure knows one too.

If the seller failed to disclose ( and he knew ) that the pool had a leak, is there any recourse for the OP ?

If he knew, or reasonably should have known, and you can demonstrate that you got a good case in small claims court. If it gets past $5,000 forget about it unless in gets way up there.

Pool leaks can be difficult to detect and they can worsen slowly over a long time period.

Short of finding a tech he consulted or a neighbor who knew I don't think you have much of a shot.

I have experience with a couple of leak detectors in CA. They were able to "pinpoint" the leak to within about 12 inches even though the pipe leaking was a couple feet down under a concrete deck.

Glad you liked my tree guy! He did a great job for me and I'm happy to see him get more work.

Sorry about the pool!
