    Is this Liner gap to big?

    I am having hard time accepting that this liner join line is acceptable. The picture below shows where the border portion of the liner is joined. There is an ugly white gap, which takes away from the tile look. This eyesore is right at the entry of the large roman steps to the right. The liner is by VynAll. What does the forum think?

    I hate to complain about minor aesthetic stuff but that is really an eyesore and I think you have a valid gripe.

    I have never seen anything like that, and if it is where you enter by the step, you know people will be asking you every time - a constant reminder "I should of had that fixed when it was installed".

    Thanks for the validation. The builder and liner manufacturer have agreed to replace it.

    My liner is by VynAll too and it isnt anything like that at all.

    Typically they should put the seems where the steps are so when you cut the steps out you don't see the seem anywhere. The pool builder should have marked where the steps are located on the original measuring sheet. At least that's the way I do it with our manufacture. (GLI)
