    Default liner blow out

    We went through Hurricane Michael and the pool survived but had so much mess in it we were constantly trying to vacuum it out. My husband was vacuuming and suddenly the liner gave way and we had a tsunami with all the water rushing out under the pool wall. In the process it created a huge hole beside the pool where the water rushed out. I'm looking for a liner but my question is " Do I wait till the weather is warmer? Should I go ahead and take out the old liner or leave it as it is? I would love any feed back. Thanks, Sharon

    I'm no AG pool construction expert . . . but I'm pretty sure you'll need to reset your pool wall. That might be hard to do while we are in the midst of winter rains, but it may not be as difficult in Florida sand, as it would be in Georgia mud. Still, you'll have to re-establish firm and level ground for your pool wall foundation to rest upon.

    Sorry for the problems. Good luck!
