We purchased our home with AGP 3 years ago. Everything was going great and we love having a pool in our own yard. I followed all the steps on here for maintaining my pool and I was really impressed with myself!! Well apparently the previous owners didn't have an ounce of common sense with the building of the pool and mostly the area around the pool. After a crazy winter we went out to clean up the yard a little and realized the retaining wall was no longer standing and was in fact leaning on to our pool (It wasn't built properly at all and didn't have any water drainage in place). My husband took it down and we had someone come out yesterday and give us an estimate on a new wall. We had already purchased a new liner for our pool and were aware we'd have to take most of the pool down so they could access and install a new retaining wall. The gentleman that came out to give us an estimate on the new wall also installs pools and since our pool was in the process of being taken down for this project he mentioned that the tracks around the base of the pool were rusted as well as some of the interior pool wall around the return jet. His suggestion was that after ordering new tracks (and whatever else we find needs replacing) including sand that a new pool would be the best way to go. So here I sit with what I though was going to be a moderate project and is now turning into a huge ordeal. We don't mind getting a new pool (we currently have an oval and he suggested a round as they are cheaper and actually hold more water). I just don't know if I honestly need to replace my whole pool or if this is normal wear and tear (the pool was originally installed in 2009). Just looking for a little insight and trying to find the best way to get through this and have an enjoyable summer! Any thoughts or information would help greatly!
