I have a 12x24 above ground pool. I have 3 small rust holes about the size of a quarter. I read your post about how to fix them but my question is can we swim in the pool until they are fixed or can the pool collapse from the kid playing in it?
Hi Kim You don't give me a whole lot to go on here, but first off, quarter size holes are pretty big.
It appears you are viewing the hole from the outside of the pool. How does the rest of the wall look, any other signs of rust?
Where are the holes located, near the top of the pool may not be a problem, the lower down the wall you go the greater the chance of a blow out, that's where most of the water pressure is.
So if you can see the liner through a quarter sise hole in the bottom foot of the sidewall, I would drain the pool ASAP.
