My fiberglass pool is cracked, and water keeps seeping in

Postby Abow1007 » Sat 21 Apr, 2018 19:54

I've drained my pool to repair a crack in the fiberglass liner. Unfortunately, it's in the deepest part of the pool and I can't keep water from seeping in no matter how much I pump it out. I have fiberglass sheets and resin to repair it but I don't know how to stop the in-flow of water. Any thoughts? I'm getting desperate for a fix. Any ideas will be helpful.

Hi Abow, clearly you have a high water table around your pool so a bad install. Retro wise you'll need to dig some wells around the perimeter of the pool and install pumps to pump the water away. No easy task.
