...like the last one". That's what the wife told me. The last liner only lasted a little over 5 years. Unlike my previous pool which required very minimal maintenance and spoiled me. This pool has a very narrow balance point it seems.
I'm not sure exactly which bone headed thing I did, but I did something that bleached the liner, and at the end of its life was brittle along the entire bottom. However, the sides/walls where supple like the day it was installed. First question, what could I have done? Would this be a result of too much bleach/chlorine? Ph being too low? (I've never had problems with pH being too high)
For the past 2 or 3 years I've used 8.25% bleach to maintain chlorine levels. I had a problem with mustard algae a year or so ago, and I followed SLAM. Actually, I think I used SLAM opening last year also.
