Hello, I am a very new home/pool owner. The pool that came with the house seems to be in pretty good shape, but there are 3 or 4 rust spots on the walls that have rusted the whole way through. None are bigger than the size of a penny. I have an example of one on this post. There also seems to be rust where water ran down the side of the walls. I will take a picture and post. The rails that hold the liner in place seem to be in good shape, no rust. I'm having trouble finding a good example of how to repair these holes. Is there a sticky I'm not seeing, or a place that has a good step-by-step process? The pool is not opened yet, so fixing this rust will be a part of the opening process.
Another question I have is, since I have well/septic, if I need to completely drain the pool, is it safe to drain into my septic or should I use another method?
