    watsons 24' x 54" above ground pool

    Got the sides up yesterday and started working on the liner. We need some help/advice on this part. We have a overlap and are having troubles figuring out how much to actually let hang over. Anyone have any advice on how much we should have hanging over or maybe a good way to start? The liner part has me so stressed out, that I couldn't sleep last night.

    We started with about 5 inches hang over and though it looked pretty good all the way around on the inside and started dumping water in. Well, it isn't right and I am lost. The liner is way to tight and now on one side is not even touching the cove. I am going to try to drain the water this afternoon and see if I can adjust the liner a bit to get more centered and also take the overlap to about 2 inches. I wish the instructions would have said something like for a 54" pool wall, start with a xx inches hanging over the side.

    Anyone have any input on this adventure that may help?

    My liner instructions indicated that the liner floor seam should go along the pool cove, does your liner instructions say the same?
    Maybe that's a good place to start.

    It does and we thought we had it right on. Once we started water in it, we found different. We tried to have the seam about half way up on the cove all the way around.

    Thanks!
