Sorry to state the obvious but get whoever carried out the work back to carry out the remedial work that is needed.

It did leak before but a lot of tiles came off and we thought it could be that

Have you read Jim’s guide to pool leaks?

If tiles were already falling off, then this implies that the gunite under the tiles was damaged by water ingress, and that damaged area should have been hacked off and replaced before re-tiling.

As well as leaks through the pool itself, there are also other reasons for a pool leaking.

Have you checked the pipework in the pump housing?
