We have an AG pool that is buried about 2 feet - been in the ground for 8 years now. Due to poor chemistry habits in the past, we anticipate needing to change our liner out next year - we've had to patch 3 or 4 spots so far this year and they keep popping up.
We also have rust on the outside of the wall on one end of the pool and I'm now seeing it spread around the pool wall - and that is above ground level - I would hate to see the state of things below ground. I believe this was caused by wicking of ground moisture up between the liner and the pool wall as it started on the west end of the pool which bears the afternoon sun and heat.
When we replace the liner, I think we're going to need to replace the wall material as well. Is this going to be a PITA?
Are replacement walls available? I don't even remember what brand this pool is - it has metal walls though and I'm thinking we need a different material - composite, plastic, fiberglass - not sure what is available though.
Any ideas/thoughts on the issue are appreciated. Thanks.
