    installing a liner for friend. how much to charge?

    Hello. I have an In-law who just bought a new liner. she was gonna have a company come in and install it but heard that i knew how and said she would much rather pay me than someone else. i would do it for free but she wont let me. she wants to pay so im willing to accept that. only problem is i dont know how much to charge her. she has a 27' AGP (j hook). ive put in four of them so i have a pretty good idea of what im doing. if anyone can give me a ball park that would be great!! thanks a lot!!

    Oh theyre pool is brand new. they just got it last year but the goof ball caved half the pool in when he ran into it with his tractor/mower. it ripped a giant hole in the bottom. smh...

    I have never priced installing one, but maybe ask for some beer (or pop) during the work, and a good ol' home cooked meal after

    My all time favorite saying is very applicable here, "No good deed goes unpunished". Watch out!

    yeah its an odd situation. they are pretty busy people. i swear she is one of the nicest people i ever met in my life. (husband is a different story) it is weird b/c she has helped my family out soo much and wont except a good deed from me. That's Bonnie for ya though!! i just dont want her to hand me $500 bucks for this b/c i will have to take it and i know thats too much, im thinking $200.
