    Doughboy 16x32 install

    Installing my first pool, looking for liner advice from anyone that wants to give me there two cents worth. The pool is a 16x32 doughboy which I have dug out a deep end.
    I would post pics if I can figure out how using my iPhone.

    Level, Level and more level. Get the wall as level as humanly possible. Also when you start to install the liner... Shop Vac!

    dittos, take your time with an oval install as it has disproportionate stress on the side walls, level is crucial.

    Thanks guys, the side supports are all in place and concreated in. I have it within about a half a inch level all the way around. Speaking about the side wall...the previous owner cut the wall along the joining strip, I feel I did a decent job recreating the factory bends I even used a strip of welding wire to create a wedge. Has anyone attempted this type of wall repair and had success or failure?
