    Liner shrinkage

    Opened pool cover to find water level. Very low almost to bottom of shallow end and the liner is still attached all around but the sides are bowed in. Liner is close to 20 yrs but hoping for another season or two. Any suggestions. I found leak (I think) and patching.

    Is it water or air behind the liner?

    Either way you should be able to fill it back up and the liner will press against the walls.

    It is just air. Worries that age of liner, probably not much strech left in it. Will fill and hope for the best.

    Thank you sir!
