I have been installing my AGP since mid-june. I found it on craigslist for $400.00. It is a Johnny Weismuller Aluminum pool. It is being installed on a slope that I had to dig out about 24" of rock(have pics of rock piles to prove it) in some places. My question is, The wall has a bunch of tiny holes, about the size of a bb, and I have been taping these up as I find them with aluminum tape, about the same thickness as a coke can,(will this be ok??) I also plan on taping over all of it with duc tape so if it has any sharp edges the liner will be protected. It also looks as if the wall is corroding in some places, I was wondering if spray paint would help stop that( do you think it will, surely it wont hurt). Also I was wanting to backfill around the pool, but I do not want it to collapse in the future if I have to change my liner, would it be safe to backfill with the same material I removed from the site?? Anyway sorry for the long winded post and so many questions at once, just really nervous as this is my first project like this. Thanks in advance for all suggestions/help.
