    Cave in on buried above ground pool.

    hey guys.

    I recently started draining my pool to change my liner on a buried 27' above ground pool. It was suppose to be dry for a week and a half. Out of nowhere, downpour. walls collapsed. I saw someone mention before that the pool is not ruined, but I would like to get suggestions on the process to fix. Thanks!!

    Welcome to TFP.

    You're going to have to post pictures so we can assess the damage.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!

    Yikes. Why do I think you are going to have to un-bury it and try to reshape the side and fill with water before re-burying it?

    When that happened to mine after Katrina, I had to dig it out and fill in the hole. It ended up costing more than putting the pool in. Good luck!
