We’ve had a pool since we’ve lived here. It wasn’t a new pool, though we’d replaced the liner once.
In summer of 2007 it succumbed to moles. They burrowed under the liner, came up for air, popped a significant hole and likely drowned as a result. The pool emptied very quickly.
We didn’t replace it until this year, but it’s now done.
An upgrade, sort of, from a 48” pool to a 52” pool. It’s also supposed to be a 24 foot pool, but it didn’t line up with the deck very well. (apparently some older pools that are supposed to be 24” are really only 23.5 feet.
Now for some sunny days to use it. 🙂
