    HELP - liner too big

    We are installing our pool and the liner is too big. There are tons of wrinkles. Is there anything we can do short of waiting for another liner?

    I can't imagine how you could compensate. Unfortunately, I think you'll have to wait for another liner.

    Re: HELP - liner too big

    Are you sure the liner is too big? It is a j bead or overlap? Unless it's a doughboy,lomart, or Kyack (which are precut for specific hopper demensions) then I assume it is an overlap If it is an overlap, then you should drain and reset the liner. Try using this link: ... salbum.htm
    This will help you get started correctly. Also, most agp's with an expanded liner "will" have wrinkles. We wound up with a few and worked them under our steps.

    Good luck....
