Lots of wrongs have occurred!
I am a New pool owner that just moved from Wisconsin to the Florida Panhandle . I have maintained very specialized indoor pools (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jibm7kyIGcM hard to see but the ship facade has a 100,000 gallon "ocean" sitting in front of it)) but have never had in outdoor/inground pool. With my trusty Taylor K-2006 I found my CYA to be 140ppm so I decided to drain 2/3's of the water (I had Pinch-A-Penny test and they read 110 (she did it so fast I don't know how she got any reading)). I was informed that because I did not have "dry wells" I could drain without concern. That was wrong! I found out the hard way the water table is about 4'. I started pumping out, returned after a while and found the walls of the deep end bulging. Wrongly decided to continue draining . Shut the pump off at 9pm, came back in the morning to find significant bulging in the deep end and the shallow end floating. I researched on this site, bought a sump pump (too small), started sucking the water from behind the liner and also started to add water. As I added water I used a brush to sweep the liner back into place and move the "under water" to the deep end where the sump pump inlet was. All seemed well. That was wrong. As I am filling and ground water is being forced back into the ground the liner popped out from one of the corners . I figured I could strech it later. I assume thats wrong. About an hour later, another corner popped . I rightly decided to stop filling, regroup, check the website, look for answers and cry a little. Ummm, the taste of "dumb mistake tears". Not really but whatever!
Picture shows the worst corner which popped out about 3 1/2 feet. One other corner has popped a couple inches and it appears the remaining two are ready to go (i expect to find them popped in the morning).
Should I keep filling and try to strech the liner as the water gets closer to the top? Full city-water fill cost about $75.00
Is this a job for a professional with a big pump (not that my pump is to small even though it is)?
Do you think a professional can reset it if the bead is not damaged?
Do I need a new liner installed by a professional?
