I have an old inground pool that we inherited with a home purchase last year. We love the pool and have crystal clear water thanks to the information gained here.
The previous owner had a new liner installed presumably to prepare the house for sale in May of last year. I had the pool inspected and the pool guy said whoever installed the liner did a pretty good job considering the condition of the walls and age of the pool. It is perfectly straight with no wrinkles. At the same time though whoever installed the liner went right over a few rocks and did not use any foam behind the liner.
Anyways they also went over an old jet that I can only assume leaked at some point underground since it used the old "black" pipe used in the 70's. My question is why would they go over the jet with the liner? Wouldn't it be better to install the liner as if this jet worked and then put a winterizing plug (screw on type) in there? Is retro fitting this a DIY?
At this point should I leave this alone or remove and plug. My worry is as the liner ages and becomes more brittle this is a site for a potential tear.
Please see the pic and thanks in advance for the help
