So thankful that I found this site.
We had a pool company come in at the beginning of last year to install a new bead line along the top of our liner. The liner is only 10 years old, but was coming out in spots possibly due to pool shift.
All was fine last year, the bead liner stuck and we enjoyed the pool all summer.
This year on Memorial Day, we opened the pool, and there was a 6 inch tear in the liner above the water line. There had also been a patch placed over the tear. We believe that the pool company, while stretching the liner to reinstall it, heated it with a heat gun and overstretched the liner. We think that that then patched it, so as to AVOID a tear, but with the cold of the winter, and heat from the pool tarp, it gave way.
Has this happened to anyone else? Is there any way to prove that the heat gun damaged the liner?? Any help would be appreciated!!
