Hi everyone

I'm a complete pool newbie and I just installed my own 24 foot above ground pool. Having done a reasonable amount of research, I thought I’d done a pretty good job. The ground was pretty level (5/8 inch difference max) on a compacted stone dust base (with sand over the top) and the pool liner went in well. However, yesterday, 1 week after getting it filled, I noticed that the wall has buckled In one spot.

How catastrophic is this? Is it fixable and if so, how? I would like to use it for the next 4-6 weeks and it will then get too cold to swim, but can it wait that long? I think I should likely get it fixed before winter as it will freeze and that will likely make it even worse.

Advice please!
