Depends on the earth surrounding it. If in Florida, where the water table is within a couple feet of the ground, answer is no, not unless you want to go to the expense of having a well point system setup running for a week or so it takes to do the job. Elsewhere, maybe. Behind the vinyl liner is a galvanized metal wall. Floor is probably sand. Liner comes out, walls come out, some more digout would probaby be needed (dirt behind walls of pools cannot be sluffing into the hole while work progresses) Then installation of 3/8 steel mesh for bottom and walls, placement of piping and niches, application of gunnite, finishing, tile installation, and finally plastering for a nice white finish. Sorta reminds one of building a pool from scratch in many ways.
Yes it can be done
The reality is that the average inground pool liner will last 8-12 years.
by taking the liner away!
Ya can do anything ya desire if ya got the money
The cost of a 16 x 32 inground pool with a liner varies somewhat depending on the shape of the pool. The average cost of this type of pool is between 6000 dollars and about 8000 dollars.

1. determine where your pool is leaking (liner or plumbing) and repair.
They don't make them for in ground.
Filter it then swim in it.
I have etching in my inground concrette pool and i need to know how to fix it. the pool was made in 1973 i bought the house three years ago.
No. Replace the liner.
This would be the the excact same price as building a new concrete pool minus some excavation. you would be looking in the 30-to 40k range.
There is special adhesive for this,sold in pool maintenance stores.
Make sure the water around the pool is lower than the water in the pool..
An aqua colored one?
I had an inground pool installed. We just turned on the lights at night and noticed footprints on the bottom. Can this be fixed? Call the pool company back. The bottom is normally sand mixed with cement. The liner will probably have to be removed and bottom smoothed. They should have checked that before installing the liner. Those printswi catch sediment and debris for the life of the liner.
Is this an above ground pool or an inground pool? The type of pool you have will determine the best way to answer your question.
Well first of all there is no such thing as a fiberglass pool. You can have fiberglass walls instead of steel but your pool is still vinyl because you need a liner. These are the usual combinations of inground pools. Sand floor, steel walls, vinyl liner Sand floor, fiberglass walls, vinyl liner Vermiculite floor, steel walls, vinyl liner Vermiculite floor, fiberglass walls, vinyl liner Concrete floor, steel walls, vinyl liner Concrete floor, fiberglass walls, vinyl liner Concrete floor, concrete walls, no liner Concrete pools have to be painted with epoxy paint or if you want tile installed then usually you plaster over the concrete. Now a days 3 and 4 are the most common inground installs. 1 and 2 are usually pools that are 30 + years old although you can still have them done that way. In South Alabama the cost of a 20 *40 vinyl pool will cost around 18 to 22 thousand
is it a liner or concrete?...if it's a liners DON'T drain it any more then about 6 in. in the shallow end the liner will shrink...if concrete.....it should be fine as long as you don't have a high water table close to the pool.good luck
Steel walls are currently the lowest quality wall for a swimming pool, with the exception of Cyprus wood (if still available). Concrete (not gunite) is superior to any other wall, but a pool with concrete walls generally also has a concrete bottom. In other words, it is a concrete swimming pool. The most popular wall today for vinyl liner pools is fiberglass and, with the possible exception of concrete, is the best possible choice.
They last longer and easier to take care of.
Some pool companys are not in business. most all inground pools have the same size treads..
Generally, a liner pool is cheaper to install and operate, especially in areas that may freeze in the winter. Hatawa
