Can this be repaired?
Last summer was first with a pool for me, it came with the house. Joined this group and thought I was doing okay and learning UNTIL...last July a friend was on the deck and started jumping around like crazy, trying to escape a wasp . Within a few minutes I noticed that the top rail in that area had come up out of place. (Long side of the pool, deck area.) Down below, the upright seemed to have come up.....I took pictures and went to the pool place that had sold the prior owner the pool; they said it was too old, they couldn't fix it. I used the pool (gently) for the rest of the summer. This summer I tried hard to find someone to look at it, but with no luck. Friends who have pools, and my ex-husband, who is now a "pool guy", have looked at the pictures and say it should be fixable. But 2 pool places said no. I have been trying to find a handyman to take a look, no luck so far.....I'm retired now and on social security, a new pool isn't an option. Have to either fix it or take it down. Any advice about whether this is really beyond repair or if it's fixable? I have to do something, can't let it just sit there .....thank you! (P.S. I have not used the pool this summer.)
