My liner has torn open above the water line. The tear is now 12" and growing... Liner is about 5-7 years old.
The liner was stretched in this area during install; the liner never seated totally where the bottom meets the wall and you can see the vinyl pattern is more stretched here. The stretching and the sun has made this the area fail first :<
Should I try to patch it ASAP? or let the tear open up and relieve the tension, partially drain and patch?
