We have finally gotten to the root of our night mare The concrete collar that supports our steel walls and "A" arms (that's another story) has a 1/4" crack that goes through the entire footer from the top to the bottom in a 8"section . This is why the deep end of our pool has settled up from 1/2" to 2" on the deep end . Our PB is stepping up now and wants to fix it correctly. Does anyone have any thoughts on how this should be done so that this does not happen again The deep end of the radius is the only area of the pool affected . This is one project we want to be sure is done right once and for all! Should we use rebar driven into the underlying soil before new collar is poured? HELP
We know the liner will have to be replaced , the leaking light niche and coping are being replaced too. Backfilling with #57 rock this time . New drainage system is going to be put in place to keep excess ground water diverted from pool.
