    So ticked at pool company

    As some of you remember I had major issues when I took off my cover for the Spring. My walls had caved in deep end. I had sand bottom with vinyl liner. Pool company came and poured pool crete and replaced liner. Around 3k to fix. Now, I have numerous spots of concrete pieces that are pushing thru liner. They said they came and fixed and they did not. Also , I was just standing close to the wall, about 12 inches or so and I felt my foot give. Now there is a hOle about 3 inches in diameter. Anyone have a clue what happened there? I am so ill. That was a lot of money

    Any idea what your water table is there? Were you in an area near where fraking or other mining operations are going on?

    So sorry for this. Could be from erosion - supporting soil washing away. Did you possibly have an ongoing leak before this? Is the pool higher in elevation than the reset of the area around it (by at least a few inches)? When it rains, is there any run off from other sources near the pool?

    OH NO! Do you have a pic?

    I think Z might be on the right track with her questions.

    Agree, I think we need to see some pics of the pool and area.

    They came today. Said it was a thin spot in the pool crete. He said it was fine for now. Just watch it and if it gets worse they will drain down and peel liner back and fix it
