    Pool liner coming away from the wall

    Apparently I didn't get the bead in my liner all the way in on my sidewall. Does anyone know if I can get this back in without draining down the pool?[attachment=0:mp70mrj5]IMG-20120526-00014.jpg[/attachment:mp70mrj5]

    That's gonna be tuff to get that much stretch outta that small amount of exposed liner. I'd try dropping level a foot at a time on a hot day.

    Yes, that can be fixed, though it is a bit on the physically challenging side. You need to pull the liner up and force the edge into the liner track and then lock it in place with some liner lock (pennies often work, but real liner lock is better). This is much easier to do on a nice hot sunny day with the sun shining directly on the liner and the water warm. The liner has some stretch to it, especially when it is warm, which makes this possible. Still, threading the final little bit of edge into the track without much of anything to hold onto/pull on can be tricky and requires some dexterity.
