I have recentley bought a house with an in ground pool. The pool needs some work done. It has to have a new liner, but what im most worried about is the sheet metal sides and the bottom. it looks to manly be one panel that is very bad, the others are just rusted in parts. The bad panel has rusted through in places and dirt is starting to come through. What would be the best way to fix this problem, I thought about fiberglass or possible the stuff you roll on for bed liners in trucks. Also what would be helpful to get the rust off the walls. Now the problem with the floor is that the area between the walls and the floor of the pool are starting to erode from the rain since the pool was not previously covered. It feels like the floor is sand, "someone told me the floor is some type of concrete with a sandy base different from sac crete. What would be the best way to go about fixing this? Would you just put in new pool sand/concrete and skim it flush and how much troouble would this be? Also i have someone coming over to measure the liner and was going to try to order on online to cut cost, has anyone had any experience buying a liner online?
Sorry for all the lengthy question, but this is my first pool. Thanks for any replys.
