    Can a plaster pool be ruined if drained in high water-table ground?

    I have heard that draining my pool here in Houston, Texas would cause it to crack or "rise" due to the high ground water-table in this region. Is this true? Thanks, people.

    oh yeahhhhh, it happens. Do a google search on floated pools. Should be a pic or two here on TFP...i'll see if I can find one. There are ways to help avoid it such as hydrostatic valves and well points.
