    What the ????

    We've had some crazy flooding, so I did not think anything about the water that wasn't draining near the pool. But when it didn't go away – I started noticing that my water is dropping about an inch a day.


    I say not just one hole… But three!

    And my other homes, I stayed there up to eight years and never had to replace the liner, so this is a little foreign to me. I believe this liner to be maybe four or five years old at most.

    Is it just the chemicals breaking this thing down overtime? You can see that the liner is starting to show some discoloration.

    I just cleaned this pool up from a blackswamp too!

    coming from a black swamp it may have done a number on it... you should be able to patch it.. not really sure exactly how long a liner will last, some more some less...

    You can patch those easy! As for why it happened............it almost looks like something poked it.

    Just be glad you found them. Mine was tiny and had to hire someone to fine it for me

    I got lazy and let this Intex cleaner run for 12 hours each day. Don't you think it was those big wheels rolling over those rocks cause those holes to finally purge through?

    If you have rocks under the pool then that is what happened

    Good Luck!

    It doesn't look like you can apply that underwater.

    You think it's that cleaner that finally caused those holes to come through?
