    can't get pics until tonite but its pretty bad, it goes all the way thru in one spot and the rusted area is probably 2 by 3 feet or so. I've read you can get sheet metal and cut a piece and rivet it over the bad area, thinking of trying that. Don't have the money for a new pool at the time.

    Take a look at shadebuilder.com, Dennis writes about that type of fix. He used to be on here, and pool forum.
