    Timing of vermiculite and liner?

    How soon after vermiculite is done can liner be installed? Immediately or does it need to "cure"?

    My PB said they lay the base in the shallow end the day before the liner to allow it to harden so they can walk on it the next day when they finish the base on the slope and in the deep end. They then put the liner in.

    A day works. Two at most. Its a concrete product but it never really gets that strong so its better to get the liner on and water in to protect it.
