    Liner coming off in corner - what tool do I use to fix

    A few inches of my inground liner has come out. Is there a tool to be used to snap it back in place? Is this a job to do only in the summer months when the water and liner is warmest?

    I use a hairdryer to warm the liner up. You can also use hot water. Sometimes a plastic screen roller can help push the bead into the receiver

    Kevin-thank you. I have the screen tool and will try to fix in the spring.

    Hot water is the safest and easiest way to soften the liner. Just pouring some on the outside face will allow it to stretch. You may need a piece or two of bead lock, which acts as a wedge, to keep it in place.
