    Need help Relacing Liner

    I have a question about replacing the liner in a 16' x 48" Pro Series pool. I'm thinking of trying to replace my current liner with a 16' x 52" one. Do you think it would work if I set the vertical legs up on 2 extra pavers (each 2" thick) and then padded the edges of them so as not to tear the liner? I can't seem to find that particular size pool on sale, and I also can't locate that many replacement vertical legs (even if they were in stock, it would cost a small fortune to replace them all). Our liner is in its 3rd season & has started to develop some small holes / leaks, so we'll probably be replacing it next year. I also hadn't known anything about laying foam underneath to try to protect it from rocks, so I'd like to do that, too. We leveled our ground pretty well, and tried to pick all the stones out; unfortunately our yard is very rocky, and I think some stones surfaced from the weight of the water. Sorry about asking a question here, but I wasn't sure how to start a new thread...

    Welcome to TFP.

    Do NOT set the legs up on pavers to raise this pool and try to drop a liner. It could be dangerous. If you want to drop a liner into this pool, keep the original liner intact and drop the new one in. You can look at examples here... Installing replacement liner inside of Intex 18' Metal Frame.

    I don't think it would hold up well either. I personally have never seen a ProSeries or Intex smaller than 18' that was 52". Did you find one already?

    They have a Pro Series 16'x48" wall height. They are trying to modify the pool but it will never work without collapsing and causing a lot of damage or personal injury IMO.

    I know. I was questioning whether they actually found a 16'x52" ProSeries liner, I've never seen that size. (Not saying there isn't, I've just never come across it.)

    I read it as they purchased a regular liner to drop in it.
