Do yu have a leak in your pool?
What is causing the sinkage?
Is it concrete or do you have a liner in it?
Hi, and thanks for giving me the opportunity to answer your question.
I presume that you notice this sinking, because the level of your pool sides are lower than they used to be. Unfortunately there is virtually nothing that you can do to stop this action. The weight of many thousands of gallons of water contained in a vessel is greater than any preventative measure that you could undertake. Without removing and resetting your inground pool, your only choice would be to live with it. Excavate the area around the top of your pool, and re-landscape to accomodate the drop. If you have a wooden deck surrounding your pool, take the deck back 3 feet and create a 'step' down. If it's a concrete pool deck, you will have to live with gap, or cut the concrete back to form a step.
I wish I had better news for you.
I hope that this has answered your question. Please let me know if there is anything else that I can do to help.
Good luck, and best regards,

Hi and Welcome to Just Answer,
Ok, let's take a look at this;
This sounds like to me a similar problem as a home foundation. I would say that this will have to be jacked up and a new support placed under it. That's saying that it is on the surrounding edge.
I would recommend that you have a profession give you a free quote, I wouldn't attempt to do this without the proper tools. You could cause more damage then what you have now.

I'm sorry, but it appears that two experts must have responded at exactly the same time.
I am therefore going to opt out, and defer to JAConstruction, as it seems that he has a great deal more experience in this area. You are in good hands.
Good luck, and best regards.
There might be some confusion on my answer, after talking with another expert, I am not telling you to Jack the pool up, I said it sounds similar. I am tell you what I recommend is that you seek professional help, with professional tools. I hope this clears this is more clear... :)

Hi and Welcome to Just Answer, Ok we can take a look at this,
I just received a great Assist form another great expert, Thanks Smithy.
A follow up to Jacking it up, there is a way to do this.
The process is called Mudjacking, this would be most likely the direction you will need to pursue. I hope this helps clear the problem and that you get the best professional help you can find.
