A fiberglass lap pool that is tiled is having tiles popping off and needs to be retiled what should be used so the tiles do not pop off again?

Pool tile pops off very often. It happens most often on lifted walls that are set up to be a retaining wall. It also happens on the wall that divides the pool from the spa, also known as the spillway wall. The tiles should be replaced using thin set mixed with an acrylic instead of water. This makes a very strong bond to the gunite and instead of them popping of completely next time there is earth movement, they will actually get hairline stress cracks. Somtimes not even noticable.

Is it true that an inground pool may 'pop up' out of the ground when drained?

Yes it is true. if you empty a pool and the ground-water level is high enough, the pool turns from being a 'pool', to being a 'boat'. I have personally witnessed the event. A 45ft concrete (gunite) pool while being emptied, with the discharge water being pumped out close to the pool - and whammo!!. It was like the second coming of Christ!. A huge noise, and the pool reared itself out of the ground. We were inside the house and heard the noise and only knew what happened when we looked outside and saw the pool angled out of the ground, 4 ft higher at one end than it started out at.

Does a salt water pool need to be drained annually?

In a word, no. In fact, if the pool is vinyl or fiberglass (or you live in an area with a high water table) draining ANY pool is not a good idea. A drained pool can pop out of the ground or the liner can be ruined unless special precautions are taken. IF you live in an area that gets hard freezes a pool needs to be winterized but that is not the same as draining it. Since salt pools do not use stabilized chlorine then they do not become overstabilzed. The only reason water partial replacement might be needed is if the calcium hardness is very high and this often involves trucking in softer water is the supply water is very hard. (however, in areas with high calcium hardness, such as Arizona, there are companies that can 'process' the water in the pool to remover the excess calcium so water replacement might not be neceessary)

Tiles - can you replace just hand painted tiles interspersed above counter?

You can cut out the grout and hopefully get the tile to pop out. They may not survive the process, it just depends on how well they were put up.

Can a concrete pool pop?

If you mean can a concrete pool pop up out of the ground then the answer is Yes it can. All you need is an empty or partially empty concrete pool and a lot of ground water around it once the ground water around the outside of the pool builds up enough the pool will start to float. I have seen it happen several times over the years. To avoid this happening most pools have a hydrostatic valve fitted in the bottom of the pool to allow ground water into the pool when there is a build up of water pressure outside the pool it flows into the pool to stop it from floating.

Can a drained pool be pushed up out of the earth?

Yes. If you have a high water table, then water pressure will try to lift the pool out of the ground. Mostly this is going to be due to water (ground settling could also do damage), so it's less of a concern if you're in a flat, dry area, but even in that case it's still a possibility. It's unlikely your pool has so much structural integrity that it would literally pop out of the ground. Much more likely is that it would crack or buckle from a lack of pressure equilibrium.
