I've been sleuthing a bit since we acquired a house with a pool two years ago and this is my first post. Our liner was on borrowed time when we bought the house two years ago and this April it gave up the ghost. I've already contracted with a local outfit to replace the liner and it's happening in two days on Wednesday.
The old liner had started pulling away from the wall a bit after the tear developed and has been flapping in the breeze since the middle of April. Our plastic pool coping needed some TLC so I decided to remove the liner all the way as it was in my way for the painting I was going to do with the coping.
I've got plastic side walls with what looks to be a sand bottom. It's a 16x32 with a deep end.
Is it a realistic expectation that the installer of the new liner should retrowel and smooth up the sand as part of the install or should I expect this to be extra?
After they came out to look at the pool this is what they wrote up. Unfortunately we've already paid 2/3 of it so I don't think there's any going back now.
