I am draining the water from my pool to fix the liner. The liner has not yet been fully installed. We are basically starting from step one with the liner. (I have a doughboy and there are many wrinkles, so we're going to restretch it) I was told by a woman at a pool store that you can't put up the walls without immediately putting in the liner and water, or the wind will blow it over. I am paranoid that if I pump out the water over night and while at work tomorrow, the pool will collapse before we get home to work on the liner. I do live in a windy area (open farm land all over) The pool has been up since Saturday, with only about a foot of water in it as it is, but I am concerned.
What experience do you have leaving a pool empty for maintenance?
