Great info and site.
I plan on replacing a vinyl liner in-ground (16x32) as well as the vinyl coping which is cracked in many places. My pool is slightly out of level so I am planning to shim the new coping on the low to even things out a bit. My question is should I replace the coping prior to measuring for the new liner as the bead track will be at a slightly different height?
Also I have a problem with skimmer as the wall is rusted around the skimmer to the point where I can't get all the faceplate screws out. From what I understand there is mounting hardware on skimmer which the screws go into but they are turning with the screws. How do I go about getting these screws out and how do I repair this so that the new liner doesn't leak?
Looking forward to hearing back on this.
