Water Level At Return Outlets

If the water level drops to the level of the return ports and stops the leak will likely be located in the return line. It could be in a gasket, in the pipe, or in the fitting itself, but the water level is pointing clearly to further investigation of the return line.

This is one of the most common swimming pool leak locations, and a water level indicator pointing towards the return lines would make likelihood of finding a leak in this location very high.
