Default Pool Re-Grouting

Can anyone tell me the best way of going about re-grouting my pool. I inherited it some five years ago and over those years the grout has started to deteriorate, in some places it's gone completely.

What I would like to know is:

Is that true that some councils will store the water for you whilst you re-grout

Is it better to completely remove the old

Roughly how much would it cost to re-group an 8mX4m pool

That's not bad. I was expecting it to be much more. However, I don't live in that area. I'm in Benissa, Alicante. Though I'm sure it will be much the same price.

Thanks

Bin the water, contact the council and refill when you have grouted ... it costs about €250 - €300 here to refill

Something in the back of my mind tells me some pools rely on the water to support the pool walls and if emptied without some form of temporary support can lead to the walls collapsing.
I am sure others on this forum will know if I am talking rubbish but better safe than sorry.

It's true of some, but ours is concreted in, tiled and below ground. I see plenty of them left empty through the winter. Ive also heard of those that arent structurally sound when empty, but not sure which kind they are

The walls don`t collapse, but you run the risk of the water table in the ground lifting the pool (floating) off its base.
