We have an 18'X40' inground vinyl liner pool, and live in Southern Ontario. A few weeks ago, when we were out of town, a leak sprung in the liner, and the pool had dropped a couple feet by the time we had returned.
We were planning on replacing the liner anyways, so pumped out the pool. I've since been "distracted" by another project, and our pool has sat empty, with the old liner in it still.
My question is, should we replace the liner now, and fill it, even though it is doubtful we'll be able to swim in it again this season, or leave it until the spring?
My worry with leaving it is that the winter might cause the walls to shift.
The pool has been in place over 30 years if thats a factor.
