Vermiculite is available at Garden Centers. They use it in for plants and trees. Also, Home Depot and Lowes. Vinyl liner pools are built on the cheap. Rather than pour an 8" concrete bottom, or even shoot on gunite, by first building a cage of wire and Rebar, they mix cement with vermiculite and trowel on a 4" bottom. Without the vermiculite, the bottom couldn't withstand the hydrostatic pressure underground, and would lift up like a volcanic eruption. The vermiculite permits water to come up thru the bottom because the cement is now porous. Installation is accomplished by mixing the vermiculite into the cement prior to troweling it onto the entire bottom, which includes the vertical surface up to the bottom of the 3 1/2' wall (steel, fiberglass, wood, or whatever). Experience mixing and troweling cement is advised. Good luck
If it is under the pool liner then logic dictates you have to empyty the pool and remove the liner. Then replace the vermiculite with whatever eles you want to use as padding
From your local pool store.
Resurfacing is applying (troweling) a new coat on top of a eroding pool bottom. The best material to use is pool base (vermiculite and portland cement). It can be applied from 1/4" thickness and can be tapered to smooth edge.
Vermiculite is not a suitable substrate.

A pool slide can be repaired with silicone. If the surface is not smooth, people will snag their swimming suits. If this keeps occurring, you may have to purchase a new one.
You would have to hire a fiberglass pool repair company to do the several layers of reconstruction of a fiberglass pool. The "gelcoat" is part of the surfacing proceedure and can not be purchased in a store or wholesale wharehouse.
There are two parts to a vinyl liner pool: the bottom and the walls. The walls are the first 3 1/2' down from the top, all the way around the pool. There are many different types of walls including galvanized steel, aluminum, fiberglass, polymer and concrete. The bottom, everything below the first 3 1/2' down, can be made from cement, a cement/vermiculite mix, a sand/vermiculite mix, a cement/sand/vermiculite mix, or just plain sand. What is used under the pool liner depends upon the preference of the pool builder and the specifications of the homeowner or contractor.
how do i find and repair leak in gunite pool with water in it?
Termites can and do cause damage to pool liners.....The trmites will come through cracks in the vermiculite and actually eat through a liner.
It would be the same as an inground pool need at least a two inch layer and let it dry 24 hours before installing the liner
