Help, We moved into an older house with an above ground pool that has been empty for a long time. Liner is still in it but ripped and no water. Full deck completely around it.
Filter pump will run (short burst just to check it).
Problem is that the walls in a couple of sections are rusted completely through along the bottom and no longer reach the track/bottom thing that holds them. It would be below the sand cove when installed.
Is this a total loss? We really can't afford a new pool.
Would it be possible to place boards inside the deck posts and backfill to support the walls from the outside? w/copious duct tape to protect a new liner. or will this just fail in that spectactular way that only the lucky get on film.
The rest of the structure looks ok just old.
