Crack in fiberglass lined concrete pool

Postby kiwipool » Mon 02 Jan, 2012 16:57

OK so you are looking for a straight Answer.

Let me try! From what you tell me is you may have a possibly have a perfect Concrete Shell under a layer of Fibre Glass that was applied.

And when it rains the water level in the pool rises it gets in behind the liner under the top.

Suggest you do not even repair the Fibre Glass but rip it out and find out the construction method used to build the pool (Maybe the local Council can help if it was built wit a permit.) then maybe you re Plaster or re Fiber Glass Dont attempt a Repair. And most important f you re F/Glass make sure you have a overflow point to stop the water level from going over the top and back behind the liner, even a drain hole in the bottom of the shell will help.

My Pool: About 35' long and it's a fiberglass in-ground pool. 6' is the deepest, and it's peanut shaped. It also has a gas heater

My fiberglass pool has a crack but it is in the deepest part and I can't get water to stop from seeping in thru the crack. I was going to do a fiberglass cloth and resin patch but it just fills with water. Any ideas?

It sure is a good answer, Norman is a great guy but it is an answer to a previous different problem than the current one?
