Water ponding on deck

My 23-footx26-foot decotex" covered deck sits on t&g decking above the open beam ceiling of our living room. The middle has sagged and water pools when it rains. We want to change the slope so it drains to the side and would also like to minimize sound when its walked on. The waterproof membrane may be starting to leak. Any suggestions?

You really should post a cpl of pictures and give more info.
Why's the roof sagging first of all?
Pictures would REALLY help!

Thanks for your reply AndyBldz. Your suggestion for pictures is right. I will take some and post. As to the sagging; the beams are 6' x 10' on 4-ft centers over a 15-foot span. I think the original sag was exaggerated by the weight of water when it rained which increased over time. It doesn't rain here often in So. California but when it does it can be heavy.
