    Pool leaked and drained over winter - trying to fix the liner

    I have an above ground round 18 foot pool - it's 4 years old. During the winter it leaked out from a hole at the bottom. I couldn't see this until the cover started to stretch down. I just opened it up and all of the water was gone. I patched the hole and started to fill it again. There are some 1/2' high wrinkles all of the way around the liner about 6" and 12" from the side. I filled to about 3" while pushing the wrinkles out but I can't get rid of them. I am hoping there is still some flex in my liner. Should I just fill it up and see if it pulls out from the middle or am I looking at a new liner?

    Wrinkles may not interfere with the integrity of the pool but they sure are ugly to look at and algae can form in creases.
    I'd bet you my bikini you'll never get TFP water from a pool store!
