Chipmunks have burrowed under above ground pool causing liner to indent over their burrow. How do I stop further erosion under liner?

    Be sure to install the compacted gravel with compacted sand base recommended when you end up having to drain to repair for this.

    Ah, so now I know why the gravel base is recommended. Commented Jun 16, 2018 at 19:25

Get rid of the chipmunks. The liner stretches to drop into depression. If it stretches too much ,it will have a small leak. This mobilizes the soil to sink further; not leading to a happy ending ( been there, done that). I think the only practical repair is a new liner and fill any low spots before installing it.
