  1. Back To Top    #1 liner is falling in

    We recently got record rain. the yard flooded and water must have gotten behind my has come loose on the oval ends and is falling in. There are bulges where water is behind the's a mess. I have an oval inground pool about 18000 gallons and the liner is three years old. Anbody have experience with this...can it be fixed or will the liner need to be replaced completely? Pool repair people are coming monday to look at it.

    Ground water behind the walls of the pool has caused your liner to float. When the water recedes the liner should go back in place, but you may have some wrinkles.

    The liner has come out of the track where it locks in beneath the plastic trim around the concrete deck. It has fallen to the bottom on each end of the pool and is sagging on the sides. The foam padding behind the liner is floating (it was behind the liner at the top 8 inches). The pool is draining now too so there must be a crack somewhere.

    Even if the liner has came out of the track you should be able to put it back in once the water level gets low enough. A 3 year old liner should have enough pliability left to stretch back into place.
