    smooshy liner?????

    Hi all,
    I have a wrinkle on the floor of our liner.....If i remember right last year it was stiff (sorry, can't think of a better word)
    Now it is smooshy, I can step on it and it "gives". Does anybody no what would cause this? Thanks in advance.

    Is the bottom under it soft or just the wrinkle that's pliable? It's normal for the wrinkle itself to be pliable.

    Is the ground under it "smooshy" or just the wrinkle in the liner?

    We have the gladon "perfect bottom" so I can't really tell if it is "smooshy" underneath. I think the wrinkle has grown in length, it could have been that long before it got "smooshy" but I'm not sure!! It is very visible when looking into the pool.

    mole or some worms...possible water runoff and the ground is maybe saturated with water.

    would a hole in the liner cause this? Hopefully not

    Possibly but you'd notice losing wafter. It's probably just a wrinkle..

    The best way to test for a leak is to run a bucket test.
