I noticed the other day that in the bottom of my skimmer where the pvc pipe goes out the bottom that it is cracked about halfway around. When I run my fingers around the opening I can feel the pipe is pushing up through the bottom of the skimmer. The bottom of the skimmer bulges up around the opening. I am guessing that this has to do with settling of the concrete deck?? Is the concrete pushing the skimmer down and the pipe has nowhere to go?? I do know that the lines go straight down from the skimmer and are laying on the concrete footer. the only other possibility is that the footer is moving up, but I doubt that as everything else is still square - wall, etc.
The pool was built in 2008 and is a vinyl 16x32 pool. What can I do besides cut the concrete out and dig it up?? It will be leaking soon, i am sure. HELP!!
