We are in the process of installing a previously used 18' x 38' doughboy pool with 7' deep end. We have decided to install it 1 foot into the ground. The excavating is almost complete but have some worries about the liner installation. Some people have told us that we should be able to line up the skimmer and filter holes no problem but others have suggested patching the holes and installing new ones. Any opinions out there, or are we just crazy for trying? The liner is supposed to be in excellent condition and was stored properly immediately after pool was taken down. Also, does anyone know if there is somewhere to get Happy Bottom or Gorilla Pads in BC, Canada?
