Question DetailsAsked on 3/18/2012

Pool water dropped 6" in 1 day. Vinyl liner is saggy in areas all around the pool. Is this repairable? Can I fill it in? Who to ask? TX

In-ground pool. About 35,000 gallon lap pool. Vinyl liner. Pool is about 12 feet outside the back door of the house. Obvious water leak. Appears to be close to the skimmer, but something has changed in last day to permit water behind the vinyl liner. I don't really care for the pool and wouldn't mind filling it in. But need to protect the investment of my home and foundation. I don't know who best to talk to about this big problem.

Many outdoor pools do not have a concrete shell, just a liner; that type of pool depends on the weight of the water to keep the side walls from caving in. This type is especially common in pools constructed in the last 20 years or so. If you have that type of pool, it is essential to get a new liner installed immediately. Otherwise, very expensive damage to the pool.
