First time poster here; looks like a very nice forum. About 1 year ago we installed an above ground 21' pool. Today we removed the cover used to close the pool for the winter. I noticed that the wall area around the skimmer has buckled, in such a way that now the skimmer intake or "mouth" is no longer parallel to the floor, but rather pointing up at a 10 or 15 degree angle (please take a look the two attached pics further below for reference). When we removed the cover, the pool was only 20% or so filled with water. My plan is to try to see if someone can fix this.
- Do you think this can be fixed for less than 30% of the cost of the pool??
- Do you think that most pool installers will know how to fix this?
- While I look for someone to fix it, can I safely continue to fill the pool and possibly use it? The kids are going nuts here, and the wife wants to keep 'em busy.
- Or, would the best course of action be to drain the pool?
Thanks so much for any advice you can share.
