    Fiberglass pool walls buldging!

    I have just bought a house with an in-ground fiberglass pool from 1971. The maker is San Juan. I have been keeping up chemistry well and the pool is looking beautiful. But, I am worried about bulging in the deep end of the pool. The walls appear to go out (almost like a pot belly on a human). It is not extreme, but I don't want catastrophic failure unless oil flows out (I'm in Central Texas)

    Here is the design that most closely represents my pool:

    What do you guys think? I'll try to get a few shots of it later this week.
    1971 San Juan Fiberglass pool 12,000 gallons
    New Pentair Whisperflow 1hp
    New Pentair FNS DE filter 64sq
    All 1.5" piping and no heater
    1 skimmer, 1 main drain, and 2 returns

    The pool may have been improperly filled/backfilled incorrectly or other issues may be in play.
