SOURCE: swimming pool liner hole

If you go down to the bottom of the pool with a small block of wood (make sure the edges are rounded and sanded) and a hammer you can probally hammer the rock back into the ground. If you just pound it flush you can probally patch it just fine at that point.

You would think that two tarps would be enough, lol
I would get weed killer and kill the grass or put sand over it. the last suggestion is diggin it up and then putting sand over it to level it back up.
Please rate and let me know if it helps.
thanks and God bless

Is it possible to bury this pool into the ground and if so, what is the deepest it can be done without harm?


I've seen 4ft above ground pools buried 3.5 ft into the ground. It is not recommended & will void any warranty you have and make you liable for any injury it causes. They can rot, leak, have a tree root pierce the liner, find rocks after the dirt settles, hide potential dangers to bathers. Have it float if you exceed the water table. There are all sorts of potential problems because, after all, you'd be doing something it was never designed to do.

How to fix a hole in a swimming pool liner


  • Get some food coloring...
    • Squeeze bottle works best
    • Or pool leak detection Dye
  • get some good goggles...
  • get in the pool, start at one specific area...
  • and take a deep breath...
  • Now follow all the seams 1st, squeeze some dye in a suspected area and watch. If the dye gets sucked in, there's a leak! If it just puddles and hangs around, keep checking somewhere else.
  • Once a lead IS found, vinyl liner pool patch! Can even be used under water.

REPLACE POOL LINER


Good luck on your warranty. I'm sure it will be pro-rated. 10 years is a long time for a liner to last. It usually costs 2,000-3,000 for a new liner and installation.

24' x 52" metal frame pool, need copy of set up manual.


I don't have an instruction manual for this particular pool, but I do have general installaton instructions for above ground pools with metal frames and liners. The pool liners are the same to install no matter what type of pool you have, so this should help!

How deep can we dig for oval deep-end pool


This blog has information about sinking an above ground pool. It is normally recommended that you do not sink the pool entirely into the ground becuase of pressure concerns and the risk of collapse. Generally, you leave 1-3 feet of the pool above the ground and install a deck or similar feature to make the pool appear to be in the ground. The type of pool liner that you have (expandable) is best for this practice, but it can be done with overlap or regular beaded liners also.

Lopsided 18x4 intex round easy set pool


I started out with easy set pools a few years ago and finally gave up and went to their steel supported ones.

I have put up over 20 above ground Intex pools and have learned a few things in the process:

A: The larger the pool with the air ring at the top the more difficult it is to fill to its maximum potential.

B: Eventually the pool is going to collapse with people in it, especially if someone leans over the edge with their arms on it which is a perfectly natural thing to do.

C: It is virtually impossible to get an area beneath the pool level without scraping the ground and measuring it with, in your case, at least a 16' long 2"x4" on its edge with a level on it.

D: Trying to build up the ground on one side with sand will eventually result in collapse of the pool.

E: There is a type of stiff styrofoam ring that you can buy in sections to go around the bottom of the pools, but that will also result in collapse unless it is used for what it was developed, and that is a rigid wall pool.

F: Out of the three types of pools that Intex sell, the easy up with the air ring (the worst), the steel supported all the way around (next worse). and the rigid side, only the rigid side is forgiving to a tiny degree where unlevel ground is concerned.

For your size of pool everything must be exact and completely level or at one point it will collapse. There is little more discouraging than seeing all those gallons of water run out onto the grass. Once the water goes over the edge, no amount of people can prevent the collapse.

Finally I have learned that, with above ground pools, you get exactly what you pay for. My 5th above ground Intex pool was the best, but even with the ring around the edge at the bottom and the rigid side, I was still wasting my money unless the ground was aboslutely level. You just have to cut away the dirt until the level shows no angle.

I wish you all the luck. If you feel a desire, I have 5 Intex pools in my barn I will give to you if you pay the freight. Each was a dissapointment and a waste of time, energy, and above all, money.

I finally spent about $750 on one, had a professional crew level the ground, and it stays up through the winters even.
