Hello All. I just bought and installed a 24ft round last July (first pool). I live in New Jersey and this winter has been unforgiving. I noticed over the weekend (we had spring weather) that my pool cover was sinking in and at the same time that the water level was lower from when i closed the pool for the winter. I took a walk around the pool to inspect and found that my wall had buckled under my skimmer.
I am devastated, the pool is not even a year old and all winter long all my family and I dream about is being able to get back in. Is this repairable? Homeowners insurance will not cover the damage, same as with manufacturer.
The skimmer is cracked which of course caused the leak which in turn caused the ice to shift and pull the skimmer in towards the pool. From what I can see the liner doesn't appear to be damaged. Will I be able to simply remove the skimmer, push out the wall and install a new skimmer?
Oh the noodles are in the skimmer because an acquaintance who happens to be a pool guy told me to stuff them in there to prevent freezing.
Thanks in advance for any help / suggestions.
