    Pool wall under pool steps bowed in

    I noticed yesterday that the pool wall beneath my fiberglass steps is bowed in the middle underneath the steps. There is a gap behind the liner at the junction of the pool floor and the wall.

    Here is a photo looking down:

    Here a photos from the side:


    The curve is symetrical with the apex of the curve in the middle.

    I'm sure it did not exist when I opened the pool. The pool is 2 years old.

    Any idea what is going on?

    Thanks TFP!!!

    Looks to me like water has managed to get between the liner and the shell somehow.
