I moved into a house where the pool deck was cracked and sinking...about and inch now since I moved in. I just discovered that the pool drains on either side of the deck were clogged and
the water was running back under the deck and then out, leaving several inches of air space between the deck and the soil. I have repaired the drains, but the damage is done.
Short of removing deck and reinstalling, what can I do for the 20% of my pool deck that is unsupported? Cement injection? Will this "raise" the deck at the crack back to it's original height?
The pool itself, fortunately, is fine.

I am quite sure the loss of soil was only from the rain erosion and lack of proper drainage,
Now that the drainage is repaired, I'd like to fix the sinking deck. I have found epoxy injection kits online and wondered if anyone has had success with these. I can live with the existing cracks and sunken portions...but certainly don't want it to get any worse. Thoughts??
