I am sorry that no one has answered before now. I will try and give insight in case you are still experiencing a problem. Depending on where you live part of the loss could be evaporation. The new water is cool and it can be very hot this time of year. If I were to assume that the evaporative loss is 1/4 of an inch then your loss is 3/4 inch. This equates to a hole if you imagine of a slit of about 1/4 of an inch. With a new liner you need to look for stripped screws at the inlets, skimmer and if applicable the step area. If you have a manufacturer seam separation the loss may increase as the seam separation continues to grow. Also check to be sure no one put a ladder back into the pool and did not put new ladder bumpers on the ladder. Let me know if you are still having problems.
