I have not been able to find the info I need for this situation. I have a in ground vinyl lined pool. The liner failed and I drained it and ordered the new liner. In to process of cleaning the pool bed, I discovered that what I thought was cement has turned to sand. I tried to patch using a portland cement grout, but it won't adhere to the sand well enough to trust. what is my next step? I really need to get the liner in and the pool filled before Rochester's winter ruins everything. here is a pic of the worst spot where the sand has deteriorated.

I am sure the pool has been patched before. This is the slope from the shallow to deep end showing some patches.:IMG_0218.jpg
Any knowledge of what to patch with would be helpful. I am still hoping to put the liner in this weekend.
