Ok, here is another - Too tired to read correctly and screwed up. I am installing a 24ft ABG and I installed the liner. For the most part it went on without a hitch (beaded one) but here is where I messed up-
I read the pools manual, which I "interpreted" as saying to fill the pool up to around 1-3 inches (I was around 2) and then cut out the skimmer and return holes. Of course I did this, but unfortunately later I then read the LINER'S instruction, and it said to cut them out when the water is about 3 inches below each of them respectively. Well, they are both cut and installed. Is this bad? Did I wreck the liner? Or is it ok? Also, I noticed there is air behind the liner as it is filling. Seems to be working itself out (the way the pool is built, there is places for it to escape). I smoothed out the bottom the best I could, but I found out my sand leveling wasn't very good (high spot in the middle where the main pile was). Ok, here is a summary of my goofs-
1.Cut out skimmer and return (and installed plates) with only about 2 inches of water in pool
2.Air around the sides
3.Uneven sand leveling (pool is level just fine, just not the sand, high spots in the middle).
I think i am ok, but I could really use some reassuring, or possibly a really good deal on a 24ft ABG beaded liner
This has been a rough few weeks...I could use some help
