    New Liner Install

    This may not be the right sub forum to post in, but here's the scoop.

    A friend of mine is in the process of buying a foreclosure and was able to get the bank to install a new liner. He asked that I come by and take a look at everything to make sure everything was in working order before they close on the house. Beside some leaks here and there the major issue I noticed was that the new liner did not but up against the coping of the pool. Is some places I can even see the steel wall behind the liner. Now I'm not sure if this is normal or not so I took a picture of it and told him that you guys would definitely know if they needed to bring this up as unacceptable. It seems to me that as soon as they get in the pool and start splashing around the water is just going to drain down behind the wall and liner.

    Not normal. Pool needs to be drained and the liner re-installed I think ... just based on the picture of the corner.

    New Liner Install

    Well I figured they could stretch the corners back into place but I don't think can stretch it to but up against the coping. I think they were off on their measurements. My liner is 8yrs old but as you can see it comes all the way up to the coping. My friend's new liner has almost a full inch gap.

    The only thing wrong is it is square corners with no liner lock to hold it in place. Call the bank and get the liner installer to go back and he can fix it in a matter of minutes. As to the liner bead every manufacturer has a different thickness.

    Re: New Liner Install

    I am not an expert on beaded liners, my LPS talked me out of beaded liners in general for this reason. But it appears there is duct tape in the corner of the bead receiver? If so, I would think the tape would prevent the bead from seating in the receiver correctly and could cause the bead to pull out. I would have them fix it correctly. Get a dealer that works with that brand of pool and its beaded receivers. I understand there are at least 5 different bead shapes
