    Proper liner lock usage.

    Hi all,

    My inground liner has once again come loose in several places which I have managed to work back in place, along with a few blisters. I have ordered liner lock with the intention of fixing it once and for all by installing it all the way around but I saw one blurb somewhere that you can use too much. One place said cut it into one inch pieces. Question is: What is the proper use for liner lock? (How much and how should it be installed?)

    Thanks for your advice.

    Don't use it all the way around. Use it in areas where you are actually having problems with the liner coming out of the track.

    Full length of the problem area or 1 inch pieces? Good thing I bought a 120 ft roll.

    Thanks!

    I would put it in for the full length of the problem area, but not all in one piece. It is often easier to put in shorter strips (several inches) as you go, i.e. get some liner back into the track, lock that portion, then move on.
