    I think it needs to be adjusted. See this thread and its pics: Sharkline Matrix 24'x54 DIY install.

    It does need to be adjusted. There is too much of the floor pulled over to the other side causing the side in the pic to be too tight or have too much tension.

    You'll want it somewhat equally taught all around but not THAT extreme. It will stretch into place but the way it is now you are risking buckling the wall as it fills and pulls on the liner.

    It's better on the liner to stretch equally as well as on the walls so they don't buckle.

    Also if you have a shop vac you can cover up the skimmer and return openings and use the vacuum to suck most of the air out and it will help seat the liner as you start filling it.
