    Liner Replacement - wet sand

    Hi Guys,

    I'm trying to install a new replacement liner but it seems we're having thunderstorms every day. If I install the liner over a wet sand floor will it matter? I'd prefer it to be dry, but it might take some time before I get enough dry days to fully dry the sand floor. Will the sand ever dry if I put the liner over it when wet? Is this a bad thing to do or is it ok?

    As long as it's not wet enough to be slushy you should be fine. It's actually better if it's a little damp because it compacts better. If you put the pool over it, it will absorb into the ground.
