    Pool popped

    Well, no pool for us this year I guess. Our pool popped tonight. I think it was a groundhog. There was a dip in the bottom that burst.

    Fun fun

    Any chance it can be patched?

    Don't think you'll patch that one but I could be wrong
    You could dig down about 12inches all round the pool and put some braided or welded wire fence in and that should prevent any more groundhogs from digging under your pool
    That's how I keep the groundhogs out of my garden

    I guess you need a new liner. It looks like about 21 round?... yep. I bought my liner (looks like yours) for only about $240 IIRC. I bought a j-hook bead. Replaced it in one day by my self.... ok the 7 year old daughter and her friend "helped".
