I had an above ground pool installed Memorial Day weekend. I did not backfill right away as I was going to have the contractors who were going to be building my deck do it for me. Within three weeks I was having problems with a hole in my liner so my deck and backfill was put on hold. The company that I purchased the pool from set up appointments with me to inspect the hole in the liner but failed to show up for six weeks after my initial contact. In that six-week period more damage occurred to my pool with the supports starting to bend in at the bottom and coming detached from the pool wall, my skimmer starting to rust and supports protruding through the bottom of the pool on the inside (which those were protruding from the very first day of installation. The pool company is blaming me for all the damage to the pool because of my not backfilling as soon as the pool was installed. I was waiting for inspection from their technicians before I did anything else. Could a pool really sustain such a huge amount of damage in that little of a time frame? It seems like it would take longer than three weeks to start seeing damage from lack of backfill.
