Our pool started leaking when we put the winter cover on. It has the Pacific Pools construction with vinyl liner, polymer walls and "K brackets" supporting the walls, and a sand bottom. We were loosing about 1/2 inch per day, but now that there is only about a foot of water in the shallow end it has slowed down quite a bit. I am worried about the walls being pushed in if I don't have it full. We are in the northeast US. Some say it's ok to leave it, some say just fill it to that level as it leaks, some say I must fix it no matter what, and one person says to buy a 40x100' plastic sheet, empty the pool, put the sheet in, and fill it back up to the return jets. I'm hoping I don't have to do that, but it makes the most sense to me. Anyone know if I can get away without doing that, considering this construction? Thanks very much for any advice!
