Water can get behind the liner if the pool water level gets too high. The top of the liner goes into what is called the bead receiver, this is where it locks in at the top. If this part of the liner gets submerged then water can leak down into the side walls. Unfortunately the only way to remove the water is to lower pool water level, pull the liner out of the bead receiver and vac out the water. As for the stones this can be a bit more difficult. If they do not appear to be sharp edges then you can try using the heel of your foot to push the stone down into the sand bottom. If they look sharp DO NOT do this as you can put a hole in liner. You may have to empty pool and climb under liner to remove the stones then reset liner in place with vacuum to hold in place then refill pool.
