The main causes

The deformation of a monocoque pool, or even the cracking of its walls, is often due to the fact that the land and fill around the pool have moved; and if the shell has not been properly stabilized with gravel, it will lift. It may also be due to the fact that the polyester structure is under too much pressure from the surrounding soil.

Solutions for restoring your pool

Problems with a moving shell pool can be avoided in advance. To achieve this, it is important to take into account the specific characteristics of the site (soil type, surrounding water table, etc.) before installing the hull in its pit.
It’s also important to ensure that the earthwork, installation and backfilling are carried out properly, and that the pool doesn’t remain without water for too long. A moving shell pool can be the result of an empty pool that is under pressure from the surrounding soil.
