Moderator Note - Moved from here: So, how long will a vinyl liner inground last?
We replaced the liner in out pool 8/2011 and it already has a hole in 2 corners of the pool. It's not on the seam so the warranty doesn't cover it. The corners are not flush (it's a rectangular pool and the vinyl is rounded at the corners on the top) so there's air between the liner and the corner of the pool hole. Is this normal? We had a professional order, measure and install the liner. We had seen some in magazines and he said that we needed so many mils (I think we got 20 or 25 mils) so it wasn't the cheapest liner out there. We're very disappointed - it may not even last to the end of the season or into next year.
