    sere81 - underground water

If the bottom shifts you need to go very slowly and make sure the bottom gets moved back into place before filling much above the ground water level.
    So I will tell you the problem and see what you suggest. I took all the water out of my pool cleaned it and started filling back up well the liner came off track while i was away from home, flooded the whole yard. Well I got it back on track started filling up again and it happened again. Do you think the liner shifted and all the sand sunk down to where the liner doesnt fit anymore? or Is it because I didnt suck the air out so the liner can reach the wall of the pool? Now if its the air not being sucked out do you suggest tape going over the holes to do so?
