Hi, first time here, and first time pool owner.
Just bought a house which
was built in 1986. I'm sure the pool was built at the same time. I had guys from the local
pool place come out to measure for a new vinyl liner. I was at work when the workers showed up to remove the old liner, so I didn't get to speak with them. The giant 17x36 hole in the ground, which makes up the pool itself doesn't appear to be completely covered in concrete or plaster or any hard coating. Much of it appears to just be compacted sand or dirt from the excavation. Is this normal? The pool guys said they had no concerns about the pool when they removed the liner. The pool service place comes highly recommended and many pool owners in the area use them and have been happy. Any advice is appreciated.
