I just got into my new to me pool for the very first time...been doing gradual contiguous drain/refill and other things to get the water in balance, and had to get in there to remove an old salt system that was mounted to one of the pool wall returns.
I knew there were pieces of plaster missing from some small sections of the pool, but now that I've walked around in there, I'm really concerned. The bottom of the pool feels like asphalt roof shingles (rough, and gritty, with some of the grit coming up as you walk around), and there were a couple of places where I actually felt the ground shift/buckle under my feet. That last part is what's scaring me more than anything else.
I know I need a resurface job, but was hoping to make it past this season before I did it. Knowing this new information, I gotta wonder if I can make it that long, and if anyone should be in this pool in the meantime...is it possible for a chunk of plaster to come up and cause a massive hole in the ground where water will come rushing out, causing catastrophic damage and potentially hurting/drowning someone in the process? I don't think that's the case, but I honestly don't know.
