What is my recourse if I purchased a home and the seller did not disclose broken pool lines?

Question Details: About 2 1/2 years ago, I purchased a home with an in-ground pool. It was in the fall, so the pool was closed and covered. We remodeled the inside of the home and finally got around to work on the outside of the property. The seller informed us that the pool needed a new liner but was otherwise in great working condition. We hired a pool company to replace the liner, pump and filter. After completion of the project, the pool would not work. Water would not flow in the skimmer, but in one of the returns and out of another. The former owner had bypassed the skimmer and lines due to a leaking main pipe. We just spent $8000 on the new liner and equipment, then had to cut concrete, dig a 4 ft x 4 ft hole and repair the leaking pipe. Is there a statute of limitations or can we still seek ramifications from the seller?
