    Liner

    Ok, I have a gusher . Found a BIG hole in liner then all of a sudden it was like the a white water rapids under my deck. Where is the best place to buy a liner and what gauge would be best? Any do' and dont's? Guess 10 years for the liner was not to bad. Then I have to find someone local to install. Looks like no swimming for the holiday Any help on liner info would be appreciated.

    Check with the installer first. Some of them will not install it unless you buy it from them or the company they contract with. Do you know what caused the liner to break?

    yeah, make sure there is nothing sharp in the area of the hole so your new liner doesn't fall prey to the same problem. May just be the age/condition of the liner, or maybe something cut/pierced it.

    Re: Liner

    Do not know what caused the hole/tear. There is nothing sharp there and it is not where the steps sit. I figure it is just the age of the liner. It is right where the floor curves up the wall. Any suggestions on the gauge of liner to get?

    I think somewhere in the 22-24 gauge is good.

    Re: Liner

    I am going through the same thing. I have found lots of different 20 gauge, but limited 25 gauge. I went with the 20 gauge. Is installing it something that most people can tackle or should I call someone? What is a good price for paying someone to do it?

    Installing an aboveground pool liner is pretty easy. A good shop vac and a couple of helpers is a must.

    Jeff I am a pretty good DIYER but I am letting someone else install mine. He is doing it for $400.00 for the liner and $50.00 for the Gorilla bottom.
