I have a 24' round 48" high AGP that lost its water of the winter. Half of the pool is buried on a slope in my yard and it looks like the leak was behind that ladder at the most buried part of the pool. The water washed away the dirt on a little less that half the pool causing the fill stone to push in against the walls on 8 panels and fall down inside the gap left by the washed out dirt. Im looking for some advice on what the best way forward is. As you can see i started to dig away the stone and dirt but its incredibly difficult from outside the pool and I wonder if the walls will even come completely back out. The way i see it there are 3 options:
1. Continue to dig around the outside in the slow and painful process and hope the walls come back out.
2. Take the pool down, dig from inside the hole to push the fill dirt back and try to put the pull back up.
3. Replace the pool and spend way more that i was hoping to.
Any guidance or experiences anyone has had with a similar situation would be greatly appreciated!
