Thread: replacing liner in above ground pool. One side is out of the base track. What to do?

    replacing liner in above ground pool. One side is out of the base track. What to do?

    We are replacing the linear in our 24 ft above ground pool. A good portion of the wall has been pushed out of the base track. This is due to the fact that are yard is not leave at all so on one side they had to dig down to get the pool level initially. On the side that is pushed out we have not even found the base track yet. What should be out next step? Do we need the base track on that side?

    The last time out liner was replaced the floor pool was not level so my husband is working on leveling. Pool is currently empty without a liner. We were hoping to get it in soon. If we can figure out this repair.

    Welcome to TFP!

    Given the fact that the wall is not in the track is indicative of the pool not being level!!! You can not move forward until the pool is level and the wall sits in the track the whole way around when bolted up the side. You have to start over. The foundation is the most crucial part of installing an above ground pool and the most hardest and time consuming.

    What do you mean start over? The pool is about 15 years old. So is installed. We are just looking at repairing and putting in the new liner.

    You need to unbolt the wall and reinstall it.

    If we are doing it ourselves. How long do you think it will take to do this? A half a day? a day? two days?

    How long it will take will depend on your skill level and how much help you have. First thing, get the site level, which it sounds like you are already working on. From there it should take you about a day to set up the walls and install the liner.
