    Question Liner issues?

    Hello All,

    Started putting an overlap liner in this weekend. See pic. I have about 1.5 feet of water in it, the liner is starting to show a few twists. Should I cut the water and drain the pool and adjust the bottom more or keep it in place and let the water do it's work or what... the pool is 33' x 54".

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I thought overlap liners you were supposed to start with the floor of the liner a little off the sand base... then as you put water in you let a little out as you go.... make it fit nice and tight all the way around.

    That makes sense tjroux, there is only 2 inches of overlap as it sits now...

    I would keep those rails off til it fills more. That way you can pull the wrinkles as you fill the liner.

    Keep the rails off, use those plasitc or metal "hand" clamps to hold it up in the mean time, let a little out every few inches when it looks like its stretching. Looks like your bottom is Bowled out a bit too... you'll get it.

    Re: Liner issues?

    I recently replaced my liner on a similar size pool. Advice above is good. Spend some time watching a few you tube videos as well. You will pick up some little tricks here and there.

    Once you re-position and start filling again it is during that first few inches that you can push out the wrinkles on the bottom, towards the walls. I varied from being down on my hands and knees to using a wide push broom.

    Also, start with the vertical seam down the wall n make sure it's straight. You can use it as a guide n starting point.

    The vertical seam in the liner, not the pool,. wall. My phone is messing up. Sorry!!!

    Re: Liner issues?

    Got the liner set in, did find a small hole on the bottom. Patched it. Pump and filter installed. Deck build going up...yay!

    What's my next step...?
