So, to ease my spring openings, I installed a mesh safety cover last fall. I drained to a level recommended by the cover manufacture.
This weekend, being as nice as it was, I started thinking pool! So I did a walk around to check things out. Noticed that the water was 1 foot lower than what I drained. Upon further inspection I had found about a 3 foot rip in the liner. Not what I wanted to see!
So, here's my questions? For ref. The liner is about 15years old.
Did using the mesh safety cover and improper closing have something to do with it?
What is the best mil thickness for a liner, I've read pros and cons on both lighter and heavy weight liners.
How difficult is a liner to install for a do it yourselfer?
Is the anything to look for or inspect when the old liner is out? i.e. walls, floor, etc....
18x36 inground 8ft to 3ft with fiberglass steps in the shallow end.
Thanks in advance for any help.
