    Unhappy Repositioning pool

    Hi everyone, I just became a member. Cool site, lots of useful info.
    Now if I can pick the brains of y'all...
    I am going to reposition my pool in the spring. I have not drained the pool yet, but was planning to tear it down now, put everything in storage, and set up in spring. I would like to use the same liner...no holes or issues with it. Will this be possible or am I just blowing smoke

    Welcome to TFP!

    What kind of pool? How old is the liner? Often if an older liner is drained, it stiffens and can not be reused.

    Or would it be better to keep it intact and do it all together in the spring
    I have a 21' round, above ground, liner is 3 yrs old

    You have the greatest chance of saving the liner if it is empty for as little lite as possible. And even then there is no guarantee.

    Make sure you have the new location all prepped and perfectly level so you can drain, move and fill.

    Repositioning pool

    Welcome to TFP !!
    I thought I read somewhere you can try to save it if you fold it up as soon as you remove and put it in an airtight container as possible, you can possibly save it. Not 100% sure on this.
    You could try to contact a liner manufacturer and see if they could give you some insight on saving it. 😎

    thanks all
    I think my best chance is to wait and do it all together
    So I will close it for now, and tackle in the spring.
