    New Vinyl Liner

    Hi All,

    New here, thanks for the resource.

    I have a 16X32 Grecian style pool with fiberglass steps on one end, with 8 ft and 3 ft ends and a "ramp" between them. I installed a new liner on Saturday. The process worked pretty well, however I did not have water available to fill up the pool at that time. When I turned of the vacuum that was sucking all the air out, air has filtered back in behind the liner, pretty much everywhere. It looks like I never sucked the air out.

    My question is, when I get the water to fill it, will the air be forced back out from behind the liner during the filling process? I would hate to have to have to "make a hole" in order remove the air.

    Any advice is GREATLY appreciated.

    If you didn't fill with water, you will need to hope that putting the vacuum back on will pull that air out. You need to start filling right away with water while running the vaccums.
