    How to level a pool that has settled over the years

    Has anyone ever had to deal with a pool that has settled and no longer level? When I purchased my house a couple years ago, the pool was already unlevel and the owners said it had been that way for 10+ years now and hadn't settled anymore. However, I have noticed that this settling has caused...

    What is under my vinyl liner?

    Thank you. That helps a lot. I guess I will wait to see what I have when I pull up the liner. I have learned in another thread that it probably isn't in my best interests to replace the liner myself, but do you think I could do the pool base repairs fairly easily?

    August and pool is losing water again

    I just posted my own thread with a very similar issue here: Finding a strange leak ajw22 was kind enough to direct me here. I am in Mid-Missouri having the exact same issue. Yes, it is cooler at night right now, but I also lose water just as consistently during the day. A bucket test shows I am...

    Finding a strange leak

    This is my first post at TFP, but I have been lurking and reading for over a year. The information posted here and the helpfulness of the people who post it have been a tremendous resource for me. I purchased a home over a year ago in May of 2017 that has an in-ground vinyl liner pool. I don't...
