I have a 24' above ground pool we installed 2 years ago. This is our second winter with the pool. This year we had a particularly bad winter with allot of snow and rain. Finally over the last few weeks the snow and ice is melting away and I'm getting the opportunity to check out the pool. I noticed today the bottom part of the wall approx 1/3 away around the pool is bowed out. The wall is still in the top and bottom tracks and the liner looks fine. The water level is where we left it in fall. I'm assuming this is because the frost in the ground pushed up on the bottom track and the wall had to other place to go but out.
Now my question/concern. Is it possible the wall will bow back in as the frost comes out of the ground. And if not is the pool safe to use until the next liner change when I can straighten out the wall. The last thing we want is to put anyone at harm if the pool wall gives out.
