I have an above ground 10 year old pool. The liner was replaced for the first time two years ago because of two small holes. The sidewall was starting to rust so they taped a plastic coffee can lid over the holes, installed the liner, and handed me the bill. They told me I could paint the outside but there was no mention of the rust on the inside of the wall. I now have a hole and rusted area at least 6" and the plastic lid is bulging out. I can slip a plastic or metal panel between the sidewall and the liner and I'm ok with a quick fix but I am concerned with the chunks of rust that are embedded in the back of the liner. I have the capability to cut the panel affected panel out (two holes about 7' apart) and rivet in new.
