An inground pool is typically lined with either gunite (concrete), fiberglass, or vinyl. Gunite and fiberglass are roughly the same cost, whereas vinyl is considerably cheaper. With the lower price comes less durability, as vinyl lining has to be replaced every 8-10 years or so, whereas the other two can last for decades. Vinyl is also much easier to puncture or otherwise damage. That said, many people still prefer vinyl inground pools due to the lower cost.

The liner should not float at all. The pressure or weight of the water is what holds it down. There has to be either a leak where water is getting under or behind it or maybe ground water is forcing it up. This is sometimesa problem in the southern states where the water table is closer to the ground surface.
