Re: Dangerously Deep Swimming Pool
I think it's possible to retrofit a vinyl liner to a concrete pool. If so, they could fill the pool with sand to the desired depth, and the liner would go in. The sand would never be completely dry, and the bottom drain would have to be modified. I cannot imagine that no-one has ever done this kind of thing. Early pools were often ridiculously deep, like 16 x 20 and 12 feet deep for diving. I supposedly have one of them in my back yard, filled in ages ago.
Remove not the ancient landmark, which your fathers have set.
