It’s not necessarily a construction flaw that creates a problem in your pool. Some of the contributing factors are:
- Ground water : Under the pool or along its sides, groundwater exerts enough pressure to buckle walls or pop up bottoms. All groundwater should be drained away from the pool structure
- Harsh chemicals : Like any surface exposure to chemicals can breakdown the surface of the pool. Applying chemicals at the recommended rate and maintaining pool pH helps to avoid this problem.
- Algae bloom : The chemicals used to control a bloom and the algae itself contribute to pool surface breakdown
- Erosion : With pool walls only about 4 inches thick, the constant action of water on the pool surface
- Neglect : Lack of maintenance, whether from former owners or a busy family life, will damage the pool’s surfaces.
